Battery Terminal Insulator >
For this project, we created a mold that perfectly covered a military vehicle's battery cable connection, despite its unique shape. Because of our talented engineers and custom-developed equipment and materials, Midwest Rubber often takes on challenges other manufacturers aren't capable of handling.
Military Moisture Seal >
When a client came to us with a rush order and we did not have the necessary tooling available, it didn't stop us! We used the client's reference material (a 2D print from the 1980s) to create models for both the part, and the tooling needed to produce it.
Military Vehicle Double Shift Boot >
Our slush molding process allowed us to develop and produce a large one-piece shifter boot that met our customer's specific requirements of covering two levers and protecting the shifter from desert sand.
Tank Step >
Our research during this project paid off. While developing this part, which was intended to cover sharp areas inside military vehicles, our research revealed that the material we were considering would never withstand the "real life" purpose this product was serving: soldiers used the area it covered as a step to exit the vehicle! Knowing this, we chose a more durable material for the cover that would hold up to being stepped on over time.
