What is Rubber Lathe Cutting and its Benefits
Rubber lathe cutting is a process that uses precision tools to cut rubber into custom shapes and sizes. This technique utilizes the same principle as regular metal lathe cutting but applies to different materials. It can be used on almost any rubber product, from lathe cut rubber
gaskets and O-rings to tubing, belts, lathe cut rubber washers, and more.
The benefits of this method are numerous, including:
- Rubber lathe cutting offers exact cuts with minimal material waste. In addition to precision cuts that hold tight tolerances, workpieces can also be machined efficiently using proper tool selection and setup.
- This type of machining also offers quick turnaround times for prototyping or production runs since the lathe cut rubber parts don’t need secondary operations, such as deburring or sanding.
- It works with a wide variety of materials. From softer rubbers like neoprene and urethane to harder rubbers like nitrile and silicone, a quality machine shop should be able to work with any rubber product you need. This makes it ideal for prototyping or customizing parts with unique requirements or specifications.
Rubber lathe cutting can provide cost savings compared to other machining methods due to the speed and efficiency provided by the process. By utilizing this technique, production times are reduced significantly, leading to lower labor and materials costs.
- Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
Rubber lathe cutting requires materials that can handle the pressure and heat of the process. That’s why choosing a strong, durable, yet flexible material is important.
Common rubber lathe cutting materials we use at Thomas A. Caserta, Inc. include:
- Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer: EPDM is a synthetic rubber of ethylene and propylene monomers. It features excellent weathering, ozone, aging, and chemical resistance properties. Additionally, it has excellent electrical insulation properties making it a great option for large-scale projects.
- Neoprene: Neoprene is another synthetic rubber made from chloroprene. It has excellent physical tensile strength and flexibility and incredible heat, oil, and abrasion resistance - making it ideal for use in applications where flexibility and durability are key factors. It also offers great insulation against electricity, which makes it an excellent choice for high-voltage applications such as automotive parts or aerospace components.
- Nitrile: Nitrile rubber is composed of acrylonitrile and butadiene. It has excellent oil, fuel, and chemical resistance qualities, making it a primary material for automotive and industrial applications where exposure to harsh chemicals is daily. Additionally, nitrile rubber has excellent tear strength and good flexibility properties.
- Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR): SBR is a synthetic rubber material from styrene and butadiene monomers. It has superior wear resistance and low-temperature flexibility properties. SBR rubber materials are usually used in automotive parts or construction projects since they can easily withstand pressure and shock.
- Silicone: Silicone rubber is another type of synthetic elastomer known for its excellent heat, cold, and weather resistance properties. It is non-toxic and has excellent electrical insulation qualities making it an ideal choice for electronic components or medical applications where exposure to extreme temperatures is common.
- Viton®: Viton® is a type of synthetic rubber. Its unique formulation makes it resistant to oils, fuels, and chemicals, making it perfect for use in automotive parts and gaskets. Its superior wear resistance makes it an excellent choice for any application where durability and strength are key factors.
