Custom Rubber Injection Molding Manufacturer
Injection Molding is when an uncured rubber strip is fed through a screw barrel into a heated, closed mold (the mold is specific to the part and may have multiple cavities). The screw pushes a measured amount of rubber through a system of gates and runners into the cavities. The pressure of the press holds the mold closed. The rubber is held in the heated cavity for a specific amount of time to properly cure the rubber into its final shape.
The Pros and Cons of Injection Molding
- Reduces piece price cost on mid to high volume components
- Good for high precision components
- Can accommodate over-mold or rubber bonded to metal or other material parts
- Flexibility for types of material to use
- Short cycle times
