A new service called ProtoFastParts.com from Rubber Industries Inc. (Shakopee, MN) specializes in custom rubber, thermoplastic rubber, silicone, liquid silicone rubber, and other elastomeric materials. With the motto, ?From print to part in 10 days,? the new service aims to let designers evaluate and test various rubber formulations simultaneously. After materials are selected and formulated, Rubber Industries builds a single-cavity mold and produces 12 sample parts in just 10 working days.
In-house elastomer testing facilities and formulation monitoring systems are available to ensure that materials meet customer requirements. These can include specific medical device and other industry-specific performance requirements such as contamination, UV and chemical resistance, and other features such as insulation, bonding, and sealing.
?We?ve had a huge response for ProtoFastParts service,? reports Bruce Nelson, sales manager for Rubber Industries. ?Design firms targeting the medical device industry in particular are using this service to speed up development time for their products. ProtoFastParts can save months of trial and error in the design stages. It helps beat competitors to the marketplace with proprietary designed medical devices where time is of the essence and patient trials, FDA approvals, and patent filings are critical steps in the development process.?— MM
