Industrial Design, Prototyping, Manufacturing for Plastics and Rubber.

We have compiled the following list of frequently asked questions that are relevant to our industry and services.

What is Injection Moulding?

Injection Moulding is the shaping of rubber or plastic articles by injecting heated material into a mould.

What is Plastics Thermoforming?

Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product.

What is Rubber Compression Moulding?

The rubber compression moulding process begins with a piece of uncured rubber which has been performed to a controlled weight and shape. This preform is placed directly into the rubber mould cavity prior to mould closure. As the mould is closed, the material is compressed between the plates causing the compound to flow to fills the cavity. The material is held in the mould under high pressure and elevated temperature to activate the cure system in the rubber compound (rubber is vulcanized). The cycle time is established to reach an optimal level of cure. At the end of the cycle, the parts are removed or ejected from the cavities and the next cycle begins.
