Rubber Injection Molding
Rubber injection molding is used to develop both solid rubber parts and rubber-to-metal bonded products. Natural and synthetic rubber compounds can provide a wide variety of properties that solve problems from seals or gaskets, noise and vibration isolation, abrasion and impact resistance and chemical/corrosion resistance. Rubber injection molding is an ideally suited for mid-to-high-volume production and where tight tolerances, part consistency or over-molding are required. In addition, rubber injection molding works well with rubber compounds that have faster cure times. This is a process that can be fully automated.
Rubber Injection Molding Advantages
- A mid-to-high volume, efficient process
- Full automation is available
- Provides high-tolerance, precision rubber molded products
- The best rubber process for consistency and repeatability
- Allows for molding of complex geometry
- Ideal for rubber to metal bonding, insert molding and over-molding
- Color molded rubber
- Lower unit cost
- Eliminates preforms and preform labor cost
- Flashless molding / flashless tooling / eliminating secondary trimming
- Rapid cavity filling
- Reduced cycle time
- Minimal material waste
Rubber Injection Molding Disadvantages
- Higher start-up/shutdown costs
- Suited for high volume applications
- Not all elastomers are suitable due to fast cure times
