Rubber Media Forming

Rubber Media Forming (RMF) is a proposed alternative to rubber pad forming (RPF). RPF has been used for many years in the automotive and aerospace. RMF is an AM concept and uses various rubber media. The media, when pressed into the die, may emulate both a hydroforming process  and the RPF process. Agile processes, such as, RMF may reduce tool change over time and reduce tool inventory. The use of RMF may prove to be an efficient and cost effective process.
