Our services

DLR specialises in the development of high-quality custom rubber mouldings, polyurethane casting and moulding, and bespoke rubber sheeting. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards of service to our customers. This means providing a full turnkey solution, from the design stages through to development and full-scale production, to provide you with the most reliable, durable and cost-effective novel solutions.

Design

We work closely with you to gain a thorough understanding of your needs and to provide tailor-made solutions that help you to achieve your operational objectives. Our rubber design team will effectively become invaluable members of your team, combining years of top-level industry experience with the latest CAD and FEA technology to deliver functional and effective designs, comprising the most appropriate materials for your application.

Development

We blend materials science, tooling and process technology during the development stage to produce your component. We make subtle modifications to the materials, tooling and processes at this stage and test your component under real application settings to validate their functionality. This iterative and collaborative process enables us to work closely with you to ensure you receive an end product that satisfies all your requirements.

Manufacture

Having laid much of the groundwork in the design and development stages, we finally move on to the manufacturing process. Over the years, we have been able to streamline and perfect our design processes to deliver the economical rubber manufacturing services we offer today. Whether via injection, transfer or compression moulding, we have the experience, expertise and technology to bring your part into production.
