Where close dimensional tolerances are required and product volumes dictate, injection molding is the more desirable alternative. It is one of three custom rubber molding processes utilized by Archer.
In transfer molding, hydraulic pressure closes the mold and pushes the rubber into the cavities.
By contrast, the closing pressure and the injection pressure can act independently in injection molding. Material is fed
through channels into an already closed cavity, thereby providing a closer tolerance process.
Additionally, the material is delivered to the mold cavity in a pre-heated condition, shortening the entire process cycle.
