Custom Transfer Molding & Rubber to Metal Bonding
A client needed help with their rubber antennas getting ripped off of their construction equipment during use. In response to this problem, we developed rubber to metal bonding solutions. The solution gave the antennas durability while maintaining their flexibility to prevent damage
For this solution, first, we used a special compound to creat these rubber whip antenna assemblies. This compound meets both flexibility and fatigue requirements. Then we used transfer molding to finish the product. Clearly, Qualiform’s experience with rubber to metal bonding and creative problem-solving helped solve this problem.

Transfer Molding and Rubber to Metal Bonding Process for Rubber Whip Antenna Asemblies
Qualiform’s experience with rubber to metal bonding and creative problem-solving helped solve a problem with these rubber whip antennas. When transfer molding is used for rubber to metal bonding or over molding, the components are loaded into a heated mold.
Material is then loaded into the well pot of the transfer mold. Once the mold closes, the rubber is heated and then transferred through the runner. The gate sprues into the mold cavities and around the metal insert. With the pressure and elevated temperatures, the rubber cures and vulcanizes and then the parts are removed.
