Rubber Compression Mold
Compression Molding is the original production method for molded rubber. It is ideal for low to medium volumes and useful molding process for forming bulky parts, gaskets, seals and O-rings.
It is a widely used, efficient, economical production method for many products particularly low production volumes of medium to large parts, materials with a high cost and applications that demand extreme hardness.
The process involves compressing preformed rubber in a mold with a press. During the compression process, rubber is forced into the mold cavity to form the final product.
Rubber Compression molding offers advantages over other methods by providing:-
- Tooling savings,
- Short setup time ( saves on short production runs),
- The capacity to process stiff
- Least amount of waste.
