Manufacture of Custom Sealing Precision Gasket for Plastic Injection Mold Tooling
Problem: A plastic injection molding company had an issue with parallelism caused by an old molding process that involved old tooling, leading to problems with sealing capabilities on parts they were manufactured. To replace the tooling would have cost the company well into 6 figures; so, instead, our engineers assisted with the customer design to provide a better sealing solution.
Solution: Archer Advanced Rubber engineering provided support to the customer for a precision gasket utilizing custom compounding of materials, and appropriate dimensional tolerances, which compensated for the aged tool while at the same time providing an excellent sealing surface for their parts. This not only saved our customer money, but improved their process significantly and created a better product for our customer to offer to the end user.
