At IER Fujikura, we utilize compression, transfer, injection and other proprietary molding technologies to meet customer needs. In addition, our vast knowledge of formulas and compounds allows us to produce parts that will function in almost any environment.
We continually refine our processes in prototype design, rubber compound development, manufacturing, value-added surface treatments and assembly. We also provide application and testing design assistance, compound development and testing, cost-justified components and equipment, and responsive supply.
Bonding Process. Our experience in thermoset bonding of rubber to metal and to engineered plastics inserts allows us to offer unique application solutions. Our ability to bond rubber parts during the molding process (rather than a secondary glue operation) reduces cost (i.e., assembly labor cost and equipment investment). It also reduces weight, creates tighter tolerances, ensures seal integrity and detection, and reduces the supply chain for our customers.
Secondary Processes. Our secondary processes include surface treatments and coatings, die-cutting, assembly and special packaging. Our I-Process surface treatment enhances seal function, assembly and packaging.
