Rubber Design and Engineering
We don't just design parts. We design solutions.
Design to Delivery
When designing molded rubber parts we typically break costs down into four steps:
- Design - Creating a 3D CAD model of the molded rubber part
- Soft Tooling/Prototyping (optional) - Not a critical step, but occasionally recommended in order to ensure proper fit of the part before manufacturing the finished molded rubber part (for more information on prototyping, click here).
- Building the Mold - This includes determining how many cavities the mold will have and then cutting steel to build a production mold.
- Production - This is the final step where the molded rubber part comes to life. Custom Rubber Corp. manufactures the finished rubber parts through either injection molding, compression molding, or transfer molding (for more information on rubber molding, click here).
Designing the solution
Manufacturing a successful product begins in the design phaselong before the first part is run. Many times, customers partner with us for expertise in designing a product from the ground up as a way to maximize performance and minimize costs. They depend on our years of experience to see a better, faster or more efficient design.
Our expertise can affect not just the making of the part, but the manufacturing of the end product. We practice proactive design, looking for opportunities to remove a step in your manufacturing or assembly process through an innovative part design or supplying an assembly. As experts on rubber, we can also help you anticipate end-user issues that affect performance and longevity, and help you match the design to the needsefficiently and cost effectively.
Designing molded rubber products can be challenging due to teh often dynamic reaction in the application. We can design the right amount of stretch or compression that takes advantage of the unique characteristics of rubber.
Specifying the rubber
There are literally thousands of recipes for rubber compounds. Specifying the rubber for any given project can be more complex than it may first appear. Custom Rubber Corp. can put years of scientific and real-world knowledge into helping you choose the right rubber for the job. We know the questions to ask about end-user environments and the manufacturing process to assure you the very best choice.
