Engine Cradle Mount

In this application, an injection-molded TEEE thermoplastic elastomer replaced thermoset rubber thanks to the unique properties of the elastomer and a post-mold forming step that used controlled insertion to achieve proper compression.  The design also takes advantage of the elastomer’s ability to take a new material property set in order to meet hysteresis requirements. Cost saving of 15% were achieved, and cycle time was reduced 90% versus thermoset rubber.
