Standard and Custom Rubber Mouldings
What is Rubber Moulding?
Rubber moulding is the process by which custom rubber mouldings and standard rubber products are created for various applications.
We are expert rubber moulders with quality rubber moulding facilities that can produce a wide variety of medium volume rubber products in the entire range of elastomeric thermoset materials. Rubber injection moulding and rubber compression moulding products are amongst some of the items that we manufacture.
How are Rubber Mouldings Manufactured?
As a rubber moulding company that manufactures a full range of custom commercial rubber products, we offer expertise in design, rubber moulding material selection, manufacture method and cost-effective solutions. We offer both a volume manufacture service, supplying to a schedule or one-off quantity order, as well as low volume specialist work, requiring standard or custom rubber mouldings either for prototyping and development or for bespoke project requirements. Using production facilities including injection moulding machines up to 1 litre capacity, and more than 20 transfer and compression moulding machines, we produce items ranging from a fraction of a gram up to 5 kg in weight.
Rubber Moulding Types and Materials
We mould rubber products in all the common compounds, including:
- Neoprene ®
- Natural Rubber
In addition to this, we also produce specialist high-performance elastomers such as:
- Hydrogenated Nitrile
- Viton ®
- Aflas ®
As specialist rubber moulders, we also offer a custom compounding service so that we can cover the whole material spectrum. This allows us to provide a complete technical service and solve individual design or application issues with a dedicated custom rubber moulding compound.
Our technical staff is always available to discuss any challenges faced by our customers, and our extensive experience as rubber manufacturers and the range of our facilities mean we are ideally placed to solve most problems.
Rubber Moulding Expertise
Our longstanding history as rubber manufacturers and rubber moulders means that we have an extensive collection of standard mould tools for the cost effective and speedy production of industrial rubber items such as rubber grommets, coupling rubbers, bushes, bellows, rubber O rings and rubber seals. We also specialise in highly technical composite and rubber to metal bondings, custom bespoke parts and the prototyping of pre-production rubber moulding products.
We have in-house facilities for substrate preparation prior to bonding processes. Our tooling is designed and manufactured in-house, using industry-leading CAD/CAM packages. In addition to this , all trimming and finishingoperations are carried out on site, to ensure the highest quality levels, supplemented with cryogenic de-flashing and other automated techniques.
Volumes and Quick Lead Times
We maintain sufficient capacity and expertise to offer very short lead times where the customer requires exceptional service. Meanwhile, our planning systems ensure we maintain a consistent workflow to deliver a consistent service across our vast range of rubber moulded products and customers.
Custom Rubber Moulding and Stockholding
To provide a wide variety of solutions, we hold a range of standard and common rubber mouldings including gaskets, seals and grommets. These products are cost effective and we can supply these parts and components rapidly. Our delivery times for rubber moulded products are excellent, providing a fast turnaround for many industries that demand this from our services, including the defence and motorsport industries.
