Simply give us a sample or print of your desired component, so we can review it and determine the ideal process. Also, please include the estimate of your yearly usage requirements. This greatly assists us with tooling design. When possible, also include the type of material you prefer. If you are unsure of the materials you need, describe the environmental conditions in which this component will be used to our support technicians.
Can Qualiform help with designing my custom rubber part?
Qualiform will work by your side from the beginning of the design process to the final stages of manufacturing if you request it.
What if I don’t know which material is best for my application?
Our team of rubber molding experts can provide you with recommendations for polymers as well as determining your durometer requirements.
What is the average lead-time for placing an order that requires tooling?
The average lead times depend on the type of tooling:
- Prototyping: 2-4 Weeks
- Transfer or Compression Molding: 6-8 Weeks
- Rubber Injection Molding: 8-10 Weeks
However, if you need an expedited tooling lead time, we are able to work with our tooling shop to meet your time requirements.
Does Qualiform tooling manufactured in the U.S.?
We purchase all tooling in the United States, so we can respond more quickly to customer requests and offer quicker lead-times.
What is Qualiform’s component lead-time?
We can ship the majority of our rubber components within 3-4 weeks from the receipt of the order. This also depends on the number of products.
Can Qualiform use existing tooling?
In most cases, existing tooling will fit our presses. However, there are cases in which we must make small tooling modifications.
Who owns the tooling once I pay for the rubber molding tooling?
Once we receive payment for your component, the tooling is your property. We customize tooling to each customer’s unique specifications.
Can Qualiform source my metal components for rubber to metal bonding applications?
We have a diverse network of supply chains for sourcing the necessary metal stamps and inserts.
Can Qualiform match my custom color requirements?
