Hutchinson – We make it possible! Is our brand message. This is an accurate statement. For over 160 years Hutchinson has been advancing technical solutions to enable our customers to reach their goals. Hutchinson is a service company – we view your problem as our responsibility. Our goal is to develop cost effective technical solutions to improve our customers’ products.
Hutchinson is a truly global company, and describing all of our technical advancements and offerings is a nearly impossible task. Many times we find that a customer need for a technical solution can be found by referring to our sister divisions, and adapting a new technology or previously developed elastomer compound to the new customer need.
We prefer to develop technology focused on customer needs. Current work for some customers includes Active Vibration Control and “Smart Structures” (incorporating shock and vibration control directly into the structure of the customers’ payload).
Our focus in Active Vibration Control is in cost control and robustness; the technical solutions have been around for some time, but commercialization into robust, cost conscious products is our goal, and we are making great strides.
Smart Structures save cost and space envelope while reducing part count and improving performance.
Hutchinson has been a global leader in rubber and other elastomeric materials technology for over 160 years. We are constantly innovating, improving performance and enabling customers to reach greater heights with smaller envelopes and better payload protections. Advancements are made in fire and smoke toxicity, heat resistance, longevity and fatigue life, and many materials properties such as damping and low and high temperature performance as a function of temperature.
