For washers, flat square gaskets and sleeves, a great alternative to die cutting and molding, especially for nonstandard thickness and specialty compounds. As close as ±.003" tolerance versus ±.015" best die cutting tolerance, and an indispensable method for rubber sleeves. Includes multiple methods ranging from lowest-cost extrude/throb cut to mandrel cure and O.D. ground for best precision. Optional bevel cutting adds geometric detail that closely imitates molding without requiring tooling.

In plastics, all resins are available. In rubber, all compounds and methods range from autoclave cure to continuous cure. Secondary machining of plastics and rubber secondary cutting and punching and as a molding alternative, splice vulcanizing is available to create finished parts that imitate molding but usually with much lower die and splice mold cost.

Most tooling is built at an on-site die room at the plant for extra savings and optimum quality. The key to cost savings in die-cut parts is found in a supplier with raw materials purchasing clout, and we have available a large quantity of stock materials combined with volume buying that yields very competitive part pricing in addition to tooling cost savings.

Cast polyurethane/urethane
An alternative to compression, transfer, and injection molding is suited mainly for runs from 1 to 1,000 pcs and parts too large for conventional molding. Cast urethane has legendary toughness, chemical resistance, and weathering properties in modest temperature environments, with better available physical properties than its molded counterparts.

Vinyl plastisol components and vinyl dipping and coating
Ranging from standard-size stand-alone vinyl caps to coating metallic components. Surprising material versatility from flat black to bright glossy colors and secondary printing, as well as compounds for harsh environments and military specifications.e are your parts specialist for molding alternatives that require little-or-no tooling as well as short-to-medium runs from 1 to 50,000 pcs.

Rubber to metal bonding

We focus on products that require material and or part design / engineering expertise as well as proven design parts. We service a variety of markets that have a need for molded rubber or rubber to metal products. We are not a commodity or run of the mill manufacturer. Our focus on overall product systems allows us to work on parts that result in enhanced performance and a higher value return for our customers. Our expertise in materials formulation for specific needs has proven many times to put us ahead of the competition.
