Rubber in its many forms has the ability to bond to metals of all kinds. In fact, bonded rubber is stronger than in its original state, which may be why manufacturers in many industries rely on rubber to metal bonding for their components. Rubber not only produces a very strong bond on metal, but it also can be used to combine several parts into a single assembly. By taking six steps, beginning with part design and ending with testing, the rubber molder and the manufacturer can ensure the bond is strong enough for the application and its operating environment. 1. Evaluate the part design and geometry for manufacturability. With any new project, DFM is the first step. The manufacturer typically...

Powerful trends are converging to make medical devices smaller, more efficient and in greater demand. The population is aging, insurers and providers are looking to reduce the cost of care, and more health care is being delivered at home. As a result, manufacturers are miniaturizing medical devices to make them portable and even wearable. In turn, manufacturers are requiring custom molded rubber parts that will perform reliably in the smallest devices. As a result, the engineering of a tiny molded rubber part is becoming more complex and calls for specialized capabilities from rubber molders. Applications for Molded Rubber Parts in Home Care Devices Providing care at home not only reduces the overall cost of care, but also keeps patients more...
