Product Case Study
Midwest Rubber was asked by our customer to develop a process suitable for bonding rubber and metal to dampen vibration, in order to reduce stress on various types of critical equipment, within the automotive industry.
In order to come up with feasible vibration isolators, the Midwest Rubber engineering team researched and developed a process that makes it impossible to ever remove the rubber material from the metal to which it is bonded without destroying both materials. The bond is permanent, and the process achieves the goal of reducing wear and tear on equipment. Our customer was satisfied with the solution, and it has been used across many types of machinery.
Cable Grommet >
Our two-shot grommets are competitively priced, but more importantly, they also deliver on quality, performance and technical requirements. Most manufacturers can’t promise that.
Gear Shift Boots >
We created a shift boot with the beautiful look and durable performance of leather, but not the hefty price tag. In fact, our material was proven to perform better than leather, and we saved our customer $1 million during the first year of production.
Leg Rest >
Through careful analysis, our engineering team identified what was causing pieces of our customer's product to fail in the field, and created a solution to get the product back on track.
Steering Column Seals >
Our engineering team developed an adaptable seal that was able to meet increasingly stringent assembly requirements and helped our customer remain competitive in an ever-changing environment.
Vibration Isolators >
We developed a customized, permanent rubber bonding process to lessen vibration, reducing stress on important equipment. Our customer was satisfied with the solution, and it has been used across many types of machinery.
