Last year, Temel was one of the sponsors for the Formula SAE Southern Invitational. During that event, Temel was introduced to a great group of students who were involved in various SAE supported activities. One group took interest in what they could learn from Temel’s years of expertise in the high precision production of rubber and metal parts. This specific group of students was from the Kennesaw University AUV Team. AUV stands for an autonomous underwater vehicle.
Over the following weeks, Temel worked with Cody Meier, Albert Cheng and Vinh Nguyen from Kennesaw University AUV Team. Hard work from both sides delivered the custom designed seal for the AUV. You may visit their site for details on the current status of their project and the team.
The Kennesaw University AUV Team was kind enough to officially thank us on their website. We would like to thank them for their enthusiasm, motivation and their hard work to test the theory in real life applications.
Here is the message posted on the KSU AUV team website:
Temel Gaskets was kind enough to design O-rings to fit our acrylic tube. They will prevent water from reaching our camera when the machine has submerged. Over the past few months, we have communicated our technical drawings and specifications with their engineering department to manufacture the components.
Temel has also been an active member of SAE Atlanta since its revamp back in 2016. Director of Business Development, Tunç Kip of Temel Gaskets has been a board member for the chapter since the revamp. SAE Atlanta recently acquired the Alabama region, further expanding its reach and growing the membership. Please visit the SAE Atlanta website for further information on the chapter and the upcoming events.
