Tooling, Material Selection and Design Component
From simple stress calculations, through to vibration analysis or complete fatigue life design, Mackay are leaders in all types of rubber design. With over a quarter of a century of expertise in finite element analysis, we can find the right solution to your problem whether it’s off the shelf or a completely new design.
Our team of experienced chemists can provide customised rubber formulations tailored to your application. After decades of developing products for defence, automotive and industrial applications, Mackay can “fine-tune” rubber compounds for a range of applications to optimise properties such as:
Physical properties (eg. Tensile strength, hardness)
Environmental resistance (eg. heat, oil/fuel, chemicals, ozone, etc)
As part of the requirements of our ISO 9001 Quality Systems certification, Mackay performs 100% batch testing on all rubber mixed in our own Mixing facility on site, ensuring we maintain full control of the compound quality used in our products.
All batches are tested using a Rubber Process Analyser, able to test dynamic properties as part of our quality control process, in addition to standard rubber QC tests.
Our laboratory is NATA accredited to AS ISO/IEC 17025:2005 to test the physical properties of rubber for a range of tests. The list of accredited tests can be found at the following link: https://www.nata.com.au/entity_scope/?AccNo=1279&q1=zc&str=rubber&&BEName=mackay
With over 85 years of experience, Mackay are experts in all aspects of moulding rubber. Whether it’s injection, transfer or compression moulded, a couple of millimetres or a couple of metres, we can mould it. Robust control over tool finishes, cure times and temperatures ensure a perfect result every time.
