Transfer molding is similar to compression molding in that the process begins with pre-measured, heated molding materials placed into a pot. A plunger forces the molding material through the gate and sprues, spreading to the channels of mold cavities. The mold remains closed until the cavities have been filled and the curing process is complete.
There are several advantages of transfer molding. More intricate rubber components are manufactured by transfer molding because unlike compression molding, a closed mold is used. Tooling of transfer molding is highly accurate and the entire process has a relatively low cycle time.
With the ability to custom mold rubber and polymer components using compression molding, injection molding and transfer molding, the ISO certified company Advanced Rubber Products employs the appropriate method for your needs.
