Product Case Study
Hockey Puck Rebounder
A new customer had invented a brand new training tool to be used by hockey teams throughout several different countries. We needed to come up with the best material with the correct physical properties to accomplish the desired action for hockey practice sessions.
Midwest Rubber created a prototype tool to test out various rubber materials and enabled the inventor to select the optimum rubber compound. We then made a final mold with design input from all that we learned in the development process. The product was manufactured using our thermoset molding process, with a proprietary rubber blend. This resulted in the Give-N-Go hockey puck rebounder, the perfect tool for rebounding hockey pucks in a practice setting. In fact, today it is even used by the Detroit Red Wings!

Duck Calls >
Our customer had a concept for a foot-operated duck call, which required significant redesign of a standard call. Our engineers researched and tested and came up with a bellows system that could be used hands-free and produced just the right range of calls that any duck hunter would want.
Hockey Puck Rebounder >
We helped bring our customer's innovative concept for a hockey training tool to fruition. We worked together to develop the ideal material and form for a hockey puck rebounder, which is now used around the world and even by the Detroit Red Wings!
Stadium Cushions >
We created a stadium cushion that was a "winner." Not only affordable, its vinyl seal was durable, washable, comfortable and waterproof, and came in a wide range of colors. The result was an ideal promotional product for our customer.
