Molded Rubber Geared Bumper with Locking Grommets


  • Molded Rubber Geared Bumper with Locking Grommets Ref: 105477

    The manufacturer of an automated pill dispensing machine called on Custom Rubber Corp. to assist in the design of a rubber gearing mechanism for one of the dispensing doors. After meeting with the customer and getting an understanding of the design issues, Custom Rubber Corp. suggested a different design that eliminated four other components, reducing overall cost and easing the machine assembly.

    The design features of note are the two little rubber legs shown in the photo. These are actually oversized grommets with rubber legs or pullers attached. To assemble, the rubber legs are pulled through small holes—shown on the back of the insert—and an oversized grommet head snaps into place on the bottom side of the metal, locking the rubber gear into place. No glue, no fasteners required.

    The rubber parts pictured are not in stock or for sale. These are examples of custom-manufactured products that illustrate Custom Rubber Corp.'s capabilities.
