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.
