Smart tooling: quality and flexibility all in one
Good tooling is half the battle. In rubber extrusion, the choice of an extruder is crucial to the result. With the extruder, Flevo Rubber Extrusion turns the supplied compound into an endless product.
With our own extrusion plant, you are assured of continuity and short delivery times.
Reliable tooling combined with craftsmanship
An extruder is a type of pump where a screw in a cylinder transports the rubber before it passes through the molding plate. In order to get the optimum yield from an extruder, it is important that the raw material supplied is of good quality.
In the extruder, the compound is heated where the plasticizing process begins. The extruder then compresses the compound where it is of the utmost importance that there is a constant pressure. This is important to achieve an even flow from the molding plate.
It goes without saying that Flevo Rubber Extrusion has reliable extruders at its disposal, so that we can supply you with perfectly functioning profiles.
Our moulding plant: continuity and short delivery times
With our own molding plant, you are assured of continuity and short delivery times. If something should break down during the production of your rubber profiles, we are not dependent on (the delivery times of) third parties for the repair. We mill a new mold ourselves and can immediately continue with the production of the ordered profiles. In this way, based on years of experience, our own machines and software, we have everything in our own hands to quickly and accurately convert the design into a rubber profile with which we can provide you with many years and meters.

In the extrusion of rubber profiles, the design of the mold (molding plate) largely determines the design. The product sketch, the chosen quality and the chosen rubber type are important ingredients to develop an optimally functioning molding plate.
Compound and material selection
Care is needed in the proper selection of the compound. When rubber is compressed through a molding plate, it tends to want to return to its original state. This phenomenon causes the rubber to swell; called Die Swell.
Flevo Rubber Extrusion is fully dedicated to the production of rubber extrusion profiles. These profiles are produced in both endless and piece production. We distinguish ourselves by having all the necessary extrusion techniques in-house.
