Greetings all,


I was wondering if anyone used toolbox or other method (library part?)  to define an EMI gasket?  I have an application where I need to assemble an EMI gasket in several locations on a sheet metal assembly. The gasket material as defined by the supplier comes in any length needed. The vendor part number is structured with a suffix applied to the base part number: gasket-XXXXX, where the X's denote the length needed.  If I need a strip of gasket that wants to be 10" long, the suffix would be:  gasket-01000. For a smaller length: 7.53", the suffix would be gasket-00753. Is there a smart way to create one generic length part that I could assemble in multiple locations to the sheet metal and then size accordingly and also show the vendor part number with the proper suffix length in a BOM? Would a weldment approach work?
