Our precision molded parts, will become critical
components in their end use with the emphasis on
performance, where selection of materials and design
concepts are critical.
Our rubber formulations encompass the entire range of
synthetic materials, from common nitriles, through the
specialized fluoroelastomers and silicones for demanding
We have the ability to tailor our production to meet the
criteria for a special part. Compression molding is available
for bulky parts with relatively thick cross sections.
Transfer molding offers a wider variation in mold construction
and enables us to easily meet the designer’s specifications
on many critical molded shapes. Injection molding
is used for fast production of large volume requirements.
Mold parting lines, gates, flash, and other conditions
introduced in the molding process must be compensated
for in the part design. Undercuts, fragile projections, radii,
holes and tolerances should receive special consideration
in order to control costs. The type of rubber and
its hardness will determine the production methods to be
used and will ultimately affect costs.
Visualizing the part in the mold and considering how
it will be removed will enable you to anticipate difficulties
in molding. Obviously, difficult to produce parts
carry higher costs. It is not uncommon to select a more
complex style of mold construction in order to simplify
part production. The one-time higher tooling cost is easily
offset with a long term economy in the production of
