Not All Custom Rubber Molding Companies are the Same
ThermOmegaTech had developed a new part, which was going to have a significant impact on their revenue. This part was going to be at the heart of their business and used in everything they built. But there was a problem. The custom rubber diaphragm of the part was sticking to the molds. And, the custom rubber molding manufacturer they had selected could not determine what the issue was.
Fixing Custom Rubber Molding Defects
ThermOmegaTech knew that they needed to solve the problem. Their business depended on it. Since having a local vendor was important to them, they did a local search and found Mason Rubber. After a conversation about the issues they were facing, the Mason Rubber team reviewed the part currently in production and determined that while the part was being manufactured correctly, the mold release agent that the previous company had used was compromising the strength of the molded rubber diaphragm. Mason Rubber suggested a different release agent that would allow the part to retain its original mechanical properties. That was in 2011 and Mason Rubber has been manufacturing this part for ThermOmegaTech ever since.
Building on the Relationship
Glenn Quinty, Engineering Manager at ThermOmegaTech says that Mason Rubber is now “our go to source” for all of their custom rubber molding needs. Since that initial meeting in 2011, they also leverage Mason Rubber’s team for design assistance of new concept projects. Mason Rubber helps ThermOmegaTech determine the best and most cost-effective way to manufacture new concepts. Glenn says that they keep using Mason Rubber because of the exceptional quality and service they get at a reasonable cost. “We’ve had no issues since 2011” says Glenn “and they get back to us within 24 hours no matter what. For a comparable cost of what we were paying, we get much higher quality and personal service.“ Glenn boils the strong partnership between ThermOmegaTech and Mason Rubber down to three simple words. “With Mason Rubber you have a sense of security.”
