What to look for when selecting a manufacturer for your rubber components:
- Do they understand the manufacturing process and have the right equipment and capabilities (tool shop, presses, molds)?
- Do they have a control process to for batching (to ensure raw materials are measured & mixed accurately?
- What is the inspection process: IQC – QC – and Finished Goods Quality Inspection?
- Is there a Quality Laboratory with the proper testing equipment?
