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.
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.
Do you need rapid prototyping for molded rubber products? Compare The Rubber Group’s flexible, cost-effective approach to RTV molding and 3D printing.
Does your medical molding application require biocompatible rubber? Then you need to understand the differences between ISO 10993 and USP Class VI and the nature of each standard.
Many medical molding applications use silicones, but not all of these elastomers are right for your application. Learn about silicone selection.
