• Expertise in rubber product design
  • Early involvement may reduce design timeline as Pendle can advise on product design from concept to finished product.
  • 2D & 3D Design & Development
  • 3D CAM Simulation with Machine Tool integration.
  • In house Tool Design capabilities.

Bespoke design allows components to meet the intended application specification without unnecessarily compromising performance & cost requirements:

  • Rubber compound specification established to suit the application
  • Ability to control the component stiffness in any direction
  • Optimized fastener size, position & specification
  • No redundant features reduces unnecessary cost
  • Design for manufacture & design for assembly

We pride ourselves on our agility and having the resources in house means we can turn projects around relatively quickly.

Prototype parts can usually be delivered  in 1 – 4 weeks from order.
Production parts can usually be delivered in 6 – 8 weeks from order.


How Rubber Type is Selected

  • Consider the environment
    • Temperature range
    • Chemicals & solvents
    • Oils & fuel
    • UV light
    • Oxygen & ozone
  • Consider Mechanical Properties
    • Dynamic behaviour
    • Tensile strength
    • Tear resistance
    • Elasticity & resilience
    • Electrical conductivity
    • Compression set
    • Abrasion resistance
