Manufactured for the large truck industry, this oil pan seal has a unique mold design that allows for a significant undercut that follows the contour of the seal. The seal is rectangular in shape, but one end of it arcs up in the third dimension to go around the drive shaft—all in one piece.
The part is injection molded on one of Custom Rubber Corp.'s injection molding machines that is equiped to run Silicone Rubber. Injection molding allows for a finished part to come off the machine, with very little additional trimming required and also insures that the whole part fills with material—almost impossible for compression molding given the large undercuts.
