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.
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.
Isolation mounts are rubber-to-metal bonded assemblies that protect machinery, vehicles and equipment from shock and vibration. Source them from The Rubber Group.
Do you need to design smaller molded rubber parts? Then read this article about design considerations and contact The Rubber Group for your next project.
Do you need to reduce tooling costs for molded rubber products? Then it’s time to review your part designs and find some areas for improvement. We can help.
Do you need help designing a rubber seal for injection, compression, or transfer molding? Then remember to account for these molding and material considerations.
The Rubber Group uses injection, compression, and transfer molding to produced rubber products in sizes large and small. We have the rubber molding capabilities you need.
The Rubber Group is announcing its acquisition of a new laser marking machine that can permanently mark parts for identification and traceability.
