Rubber Extrusion Lathe Cutting

Lathe cutting is very common in the production of rubber washers, from EPDM, Neoprene, Polyisoprene, etc.  Lathe cut materials can start as mandrel wrapped blanks or extruded tubing.  Washers and bushings are also produced by die cutting and water jet cutting.  Many components are molded, and metal features such as bushings and threaded inserts can be overmolded with rubber to make a composite item.
