Capabilities Rubber Manufacturing

Our rubber manufacturing facility is highly skilled at providing a full service continuum of custom molding processes, design, production, and testing and clean room production. We work with customers to provide the best solution – selecting the most appropriate method – to produce a quality product, at the most cost-effective level.

Rubber Molding Capabilities

Molding Technologies

Thermoset (Rubber) Injection Molding
Specializing in this process – considered overall the most efficient, cost-effective way to mold rubber parts. It saves both time and intensive labor costs, while assuring consistency in long-term performance quality. Ideal for both low and high volume production.

Compression/Transfer Molding
Compression molding is the oldest and most traditional molding process and still an efficient one depending on the rubber and composite materials selected. Transfer Molding is another popular method using fewer and less complex pre-forms, resulting in tighter dimensional tolerance control.

LSR and HCR Silicone Molding (Injection & Compression/Transfer)

Sponge/Foam Molding

The overmolding/bonding process allows us to mold rubber around or into any substrate including plastic, metal, engineered resins and glass.

Micro Molding

Coating Application (HNBR, FKM)
Our high performance elastomeric coating application applies a thin layer of elastomer to rubber parts on optimum materials. Examples: to offer strength and isolation characteristics; to provide for additional chemical and environmental resistance; to increase temperature capability of a base material; to provide a change of color to components to achieve performance, such as deflection of radiant heat.

Additional Capabilities

Custom Material Development

Clean Room Manufacturing

Custom Compounding
We can deliver precise performance results working with specialized rubber chemists in developing unique compounds to fit the application criteria.

Dual Durometer Molding
Our use of different polymers provides balanced benefits (rigidity and soft compliance seal) to achieve special performance goals in molded rubber products. We can also bond rubber components to a variety of different substrates (i.e. metal, glass, plastics and composite materials).

Value-Added Assembly and Sub-Assembly
Our attention to strategic scheduling of the molding cycle – with assembly tasks – can compress the overall production time and achieve a more cost-effective product. This production staging is the most efficient, cost-saving use of labor in handling high volume jobs. We run a 24-hour, 5 days/week operation to maximize production output.

We work with our customers to design any in-house testing program that will assure the quality and performance of the parts and engineered material we produce. Our capabilities include static rate testing and custom component level testing — but we can accomplish whatever is testing is needed to insure top performance of the part in its final application.

Tight Tolerance Rate Repeatability
We provide better than industry standards for parts with exceptional consistency from dynamic and static rate repeatability.

Part Design Optimization
We dig deep to understand our customer’s final application before providing a custom-designed product and we maintain communication throughout the entire development process. Critical feedback is provided at each stage of development. Moldtech utilizes Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA) standards. We also offer customers web-based tools to track the production status of their part, from initial design through delivery.

Mold Design and Build
Once a mold process is selected, our expert professionals custom design each mold to fit the production requirements.

Rapid Prototyping
We specialize in fast turnaround of prototypes in our development process. This helps ensure there are no surprises when the delivered final part is put into its end application.
