The changing demands for high performance , end of vehicle life long service, even at adverse service conditions and for compliance with regulation are posing tough challenge to the automotive rubber components manufacturers. The oil seals and moulded rubber products are generally used to seal the lubricants, contain the ingress dust from out side, provide damping where-ever noise and vibration are to be suppressed . Oil seals are low value, yet functionally critical components and hence, the cost of replacement of defective seals and its consequential damage are much more than the value of the product itself. Considering the functional criticality, the quality must be built in the product design and in the manufacturing process. In this KnowHow Webinar, the different types of seals and moulded rubber products (MRP) used in different parts of automobiles, and their functional requirement would be explained briefly. Thereafter, the types of rubber used for producing oil seals, the critical design factors, and different types of manufacturing processes and their relative merits would be presented in details. The presentation concludes with typical problems encountered during the manufacturing process and the remedies to over come such quality issues.
