Compression

Compression

A piece of uncured rubber of the correct size is placed between two halves of a heated mould. The mould is closed in a press under a pressure of around one ton/sq in and the rubber is forced into the exact shape of the cavity. The rubber gains heat by conduction from the mould surfaces and “cures”. When the rubber has had sufficient time to cure, the mould can be opened and the part removed.

Compression moulding is a relatively simple process and is often used for components required in fairly low quantities. It is also the most economic method for parts with simple shapes.

Parts moulded by this method will always have some flash because the mould surfaces are held apart by the necessary excess rubber in the “blank”.

Tranfer Injection

The heated mould is closed in a press and the rubber injected by a hydraulic cylinder through a feed hole in the cavity. The cylinder can either be incorporated in the press or sometimes in the mould.

Provision must be made for air to escape from the cavity as the rubber enters, and the feeding method chosen to suit the operational requirements of the part.

This method of moulding can produce high-precision parts in moderate quantities without high tooling costs. In the simplest case, the mould can be the same as a compression mould with the addition of a feed hole. Maximum weights and number of cavities are governed by the capacity of the transfer cylinder and the clamp pressure.

Kuwait National Petroleum Company

"Mr Mohammed Al Duaigy" of (Kuwait National Petroleum Company) : We tried several diaphragms from renown worldwide Rubber manufacturing companies. We found Mech Spares technical know how and product to be of great durability and lasted 3 times more then anticipated. They have accurate understanding of there products.

McCafferty BM Design Ltd, KENT United Kingdom

"McCafferty BM Design Ltd, KENT United Kingdom" - Most of the O rings manufacturing company suggested to use larger diameter and expensive elastomers. We learnt with Mech Spares that elastomer being weaker compare to metal and alloys and needs appropriate back up for high pressure or high vacuum applications. Further not necessary the most expensive elastomer is the best for all applications. We trust Mr Nilesh chodhari completely for all our O rings designing applications.

Tata Steel

"Tata Steel" - One of our old machines started making loud noise and disturbed the entire village. We were compelled to stop the machines which lead to huge production loss. With the help of Mech Spares designed bellows in two part we could retain the lubrication and eliminate the noise.
