Extrusion is an excellent method of producing rubber when the desired end product can be run in continuous lengths of the same cross sectional profile.
Ames Rubber Manufacturing has a very versatile and wide range of extrusion capabilities. Small custom orders as well as large volume orders can be produced with a surprisingly short lead time. In fact, many standard O-ring cord orders can be shipped the same day they are received. Whether you require a custom profile with a specialized compound, or just some standard EPDM cable jacket, let Ames Rubber Manufacturing be your one stop solution for rubber extrusion.
Extruding can often be combined with other secondary fabrication processes such as: Cutting to length, printing & marking, punching holes, die-cutting notches, vulcanizing, and post extrusion molding and splicing, making it a cost effective alternative to rubber molding in many cases.
Ames Rubber Manufacturing provides Extruded Polymer Solutions in a variety of custom rubber profiles, including:
Radius "U" Channels
Square "U" Channels
Bulb & Channels
Hollow Square & Rectangles
Solid Square & Rectangles
Bulb & T Seals
Quick Materials Reference Guide
Ames Rubber Manufacturing has the ability to create custom profile extrusion dies to your print or sample. We can also quickly fine-tune existing extrusion dies to your evolving specifications.
We have 12 Rubber Extrusion lines with both hot and cold feed extruders ranging in size from 1" to 12" die faces. This range of extruders gives us the ability make very small to very large profiles to suit your sealing requirements. Some of these lines also have in-line curing and cutting stations for further cost savings.Pole Curing
For precision tolerances in tubing and washers, we can extrude, wrap and pole cure tubes prior to OD grinding. Normally for Precision lathe cut requirements.Steam Autoclave Curing
Our 5 Steam Autoclaves range in size from 3 ft. to 50 ft. length capacities. We can steam cure in straight lengths or coil your extrusion on pans for longer lengths.Salt Bath Curing
Our inline salt bath curing system works particularly well with silicones and EPDMs for continuous lengths and higher volumes.Hot Air Vulcanization (HAV) Curing
Our 2 inline HAV curing tunnels are used for continuous lengths of silicone extrusion.Profile Cutting & Splicing
We can cut your extrusion using a variety of methods depending on part geometry and length of cut. Our splicing services include corner and straight splices in single and multi-cavity molds.
