The hot moulding production process allows us to create parts using various rubber and silicone rubber mixtures, which are available in various colours and hardnesses.
The product types we are able to create range from simple shapes such as plates, rings and gaskets, to more complex forms such as bellows, vibration dampers and other parts from drawings used in the automotive and machinery sectors.
Injection moulding, combined with the use of specific primers, allows co-moulding (MMIM – multi-material injection moulding) of the required mixture onto rigid substrates made from different materials such as iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminium, carbon fibre etc.
Through the use of a CNC milling machine, we are able to produce dedicated moulds internally in order to prototype the required geometry very quickly.
The most commonly used mixtures for producing components are: NBR, EPDM, NEOPRENE, SILICONE, VITON, FDA FOOD-GRADE RUBBER, OIL-RESISTANT RUBBER, FDA SILICONE RUBBERS.
The above-mentioned mixtures can also be injection moulded onto rollers or wheels before then being ground to achieve a perfect surface; the available hardnesses range from around 30 shore to 70 shore.
Another innovative technology which is used to create this type of product is 3D printing, where a material known as polyurea, which has characteristics very similar to polyurethane, is applied to a metal or plastic core, before being turned or ground to drawing specifications.
The available hardnesses are 70 and 95 shore, and versions with FDA food-contact certificates can also be supplied.
