Mold Design & Manufacturing of a Battery Seal for the Automotive Industry

[click to enlarge]

Battery Seal
Battery Seal

A customer approached us with a finished design for a molded seal that was to be used between a case and cover for a hybrid vehicle's battery case. From the supplied drawing we were able to design the required mold. Prior to molding we performed standard first article checks to validate the mold. The customer has also requested several revisions to the design, which we were able to accomplish by modifying the original mold. This saved the customer thousands of dollars versus building new tooling. The finished parts required tolerances of ±.002”, and were composed of 40 Durometer EPDM. We run this product in lots of 100 to 500 several times a year, depending on customer demand. The flexibility that we provide has allowed us to save this customer thousands of dollars in production costs. To learn what we can do for you contact Field Rubber directly.
