Injection Molding

Injection Molding is the most advanced typical method of molding rubber products.

Injection molding produces the most consistent results by automating all aspects of how the rubber gets into the mold.

In injection molding, the rubber is worked and warmed and then squirted into the mold at controlled speeds, pressures and temperatures.

Injection Molded Parts

  • Advantages of Injection Molding
    -Allows the most control of flash.        -Because the rubber is warmed before going into the mold, fastest cycle times.

  • Disadvantages of Injection Molding
    -Not suited for all compounds.
    -Most expensive molds.                      -Typically has some runners or other "throw away" portion in each shot.
