Rubber injection moulding process:
Originally based on the process intended for the moulding of plastics, in the mid 60’s injection moulding of rubber began. Rubber injection moulding successfully alters the plastics process by heating rubber and placing it under higher pressure per square inch of cavity surface in moulding. This is different from the plastic injection moulding operation where the materials are cooled under less pressure. Through various innovations, injection moulding, in many cases has become one of the most efficient ways to create moulded rubber products.
Depending on the material, tolerance, size of the part and quantity produced the parts may need deflashing (removal of excess rubber).
Deflashing methods commonly include:
1. Manual tear trimming
2. Cryogenic processing
4. Precision grinding
Wye Valley can offer all these methods for the production of the final product.
