Essential Uses of Rubber Products
In the modern world, we use, feel and see many rubber products. These products take many different forms and some, without a person knowing, are made entirely of rubber. Rubber molded products, some finished by utilizing die cut services can be used in industrial applications and household applications. The largest consumers of rubber are tires and tubes, followed by general rubber goods. Other significant uses of rubber are hoses, belts, matting, flooring, medical gloves and much more. Rubber is also used as adhesives in many products and industrial applications. Rubber products take many different shapes and forms, and are used in hundreds and thousands of applications. A substitute for natural rubber is synthetic rubber. Because natural rubber comes from latex, there is a limit to the range of properties available to it. Vulcanization and adding sulfur are used to improve the properties of natural rubber, sometime synthetic rubber is the best choice. Rubber is a fascinating material that has given the world much in improvements.
Equipment Longevity - Designed for your specific a
Vibrational forces play havoc on even the most rigid equipment. Constant movement and wear will affect any units associated, potentially causing failure at the source or further down the line. Rubber isolates movement, reduces mechanical stress and preserves the life of the equipments like electrical motors, diesel engines, fans and blowers, material handling equipments, compressors, measuring instruments, punch presses, lathes and a variety of other industrial equipment.
Operator Comfort - Minimize sound and vibration
The right rubber components can make a powerful difference in noise and vibration levels on machinery. Whether on the shop floor or inside heavy equipment, the smooth operation of machinery is important for worker comfort and health and safety. With the growing trend to use heavy equipment cabs as high-tech work spaces, minimizing sound and vibration can be crucial to meeting day-to-day demands.
Low Cost - A perfect fit every time
Rubber parts, whether standard stock or custom, are generally a low cost component in terms of material cost and manufacturing ease. More importantly, in terms of the critical function they serve for products and equipment, their relative cost is miniscule. A small rubber grommet could effectively be the critical component preventing an equipment failure, potential lateral damage and costly plant downtime. A properly fitted bushing could be the difference between thousands of happy customers and a devastating product recall.
Design Versatility - Any shape, size, color or mat
With the many molding, extrusion and bonding techniques, the possibilities for rubber parts – in shape, size, color and materials – is virtually limitless. The process from initial concept to finished product is relatively quick and low cost and designed to perfectly address customer needs.
