Rubbertech manufacture all rubber bellows to customer design utilizing compression moulding technology. We can produce small tools to accommodate low quantity requirements or larger tools with automatic pop up cores for much larger quantities.
Rubber Bellows are often used to form a seal or offer protection to moving parts, the amount of travel the bellows offers is determined by the number and size of convolutions in the design. This also determines the cost of the tool and parts. Our Bellows can be moulded in a variety of rubber materials to suite the customer application, from medical devices through to industrial packaging equipment.
Rubbertech manufacture moulded rubber instrument covers to customer design. Similar to the covers you purchase to protect your mobile phone these mouldings offer impact protection to expensive electronics and can also enhance the appearance of a product. Material selection is very important for these mouldings, silicone is very good where the cover is designed to enhance the visual design of the product as it can be printed and spray coated similar to keypads, however if the product is being used in harsh environments then a more durable material is selected and often the design of the cover reflects a more robust appearance.
We supply rubber gaiters to customer design, these are used often with joysticks on control panels to protect and seal the part from dust and liquids. These gaiter mouldings can be produced in several different materials, determined by the end user environment.
Rubbertech have supplied rubber moulded components for over 20 years and as such there are very few products that we cannot supply, many of our mouldings are supplied to the electronics industry as electronic assembly mouldings, these are generally small but high specification parts such as:
Rubbertech can over mould rubber materials onto metal inserts / components where the design requires. This can be achieved by way of mechanical bond between the rubber and metal or by way of additional chemical bonding for additional strength. One of our more complicated mouldings using a chemical bond onto etched stainless steel plate can be seen in our case studies section. This product required excellent rubber to metal bonding adhesion and extremely high moulding precision due to the fine tolerances required by the customer.
Rubbertech supply so many different industries and product types that we feel more than confident in being able to help with almost any rubber moulding enquiry. Please send us your drawing or contact us for further information.
