Rubber Transfer Molding Services

Panova’s industrial rubber manufacturing capabilities include transfer molding services for precision-formed rubber parts. Utilizing quality heat-cured, high-consistency rubber (HCR) materials, we are able to produce virtually any custom rubber components in-house while maintaining the utmost in quality and consistency.

Rubber Transfer Molding Explained

Transfer molding has a slightly more-complicated tooling process compared with compression molding. In this process, rubber material or compound is placed into a mold “pot,” located above the top mold plate. Using hydraulic pressure, the tight-fitting plunger squeezes rubber material from the pot through the gates into the mold cavity. Rubber is then cured through the heating of the rubber from the heated mold. After the rubber is cured, the mold opens, with the plunger raised up from the pot and the “transfer pad” removed and discarded.

The Advantages of Transfer Molding Services

  • Capable of producing precision industrial rubber parts.
  • Capable of producing sharper, cleaner edges compared to other molding processes, allowing for greater design flexibility.
  • Custom parts with a high cavity count are optimized for the transfer molding process, which can use fewer, simpler pre-formed shapes.
