Customer was an America based company focusing on designing smart consumer products for home & office, security and city applications. This silicone rubber part was made to prevent the covered product from shock, abrasion and dirt. Considering production volume, Compression Molding was the ideal process for rapid & cheap tooling, fast turnaround.
Compression Molding Silicone RubberBeing different to injection molding techniques, the raw material was weight measured, fusing preheated, and manually placed on heated mold cavities directly in form of usually sheet to be compression molded.
Compression Molded Rubber PartsThe compression molded parts. Since the different molding and demolding systems, compression molded parts eliminated the marks of injection gate and ejector pin that were the nature of injection molding techniques.
Injection Molded PartsThe ABS injection molded products to be covered by this silicone rubber parts. We offered crucial design optimization to improve the mechanism of this product that was also made by us.
Assembly TestingThe hardness and fitting test of this products. The compression molded samples with hardness of Shore A 40/60/80 were tested by customer before mass production, and Shore A 60 was preferred.

compression molded silicone rubber parts   Compression Molding specialized in making rubber parts with hardness ranging from Shore A 20 to 90, it delivered the benefits of rapid & cheap tooling, simple demolding, high productivity, no shrinkage, no marks of injection gate and ejector pin. Insert molding and overmolding were also available for compression molding as well as coloration and texturing.
