Medical compression molding can produce cost-effective rubber gaskets and rubber products for medical devices and equipment. It’s a good choice for very hard or difficult-to-flow materials because this molding method doesn’t need to push the rubber through sprues, gates, or runners.
Medical injection molding for rubber gaskets and rubber products provides control and consistency across high volumes of parts that require medium-to-high levels of precision.
Medical molding for rubber gaskets and rubber products offers medical device designers a choice of molding methods: injection, transfer, or compression molding.
Closed cell neoprene sponge rubber for passenger rail cars meets smoke and flame requirements. Use for seals, gaskets, thermal insulation and vibration isolation.
The Rubber Group makes custom molded rubber part for the oil and gas industry. Examples include valve seats, regulator seats, diaphragms, gaskets, and O-rings.
Wasteless rubber molding usually isn’t waste-free. However, it can significantly reduce the amount of material that’s lost to runners and transfer pads.
Flashless molding uses precision tooling to mold rubber parts with only small amounts of flash. The tooling is more expensive, but flashless molds reduce costs over time by eliminating secondary operations.
The Rubber Group recently completed a value stream mapping project that will reduce waste, remove production bottlenecks, and improve the overall effectiveness of our processes.
Medical rubber molding and process validation for critical parts includes protocol development, SPC and process capability, IQ/OQ/PP, and proof of regulatory compliance.
Molded rubber bellows are flexible seals that protect mechanical structures from the environment while permitting a range of motion. They have a coil-like structure with a series of convolutions.
