>> Understanding Why We Have Lead Times


 

Rubber Extrusion Lead Times


NEW ORDERS are typically produced in seven (7) weeks.  During this time, your new die is being built, material is ordered, and your custom part is being created.  At the end of this period, we will have a first article for you to approve. Once you have reviewed and approved the part, we can move into production and make the remainder of your order, which will typically take about three (3) weeks.  If the part requires any additional processes such as PSA, pole curing, splicing, forming, or extensive quality requirements, extra time may need to be added, and can be determined at the time of quoting.

REPEAT ORDERS can typically be completed in five (5) weeks.  If the part requires any additional processes such as PSA, pole curing, splicing, forming, or extensive quality requirements, extra time may need to be added, and can be determined at the time of re-quoting.

TUBING – CORD STOCK – SOLID ROD
does not require a first article.  New and repeat orders will take approximately five (5) weeks, however time will need to be added if pole curing is needed.  Tubing over 3.5" in diameter may take a bit longer.

IMPORTANT:  Lead times are for parts to be shipped from our facility, and not to arrive at your facility, please add shipping time via your chosen method to these estimates.

Molded Rubber Lead Times

NEW PARTS will require a brand new mold, and depending on the complexity of the part, this can take several weeks, so the estimated lead time will be determined at the time of quoting.  Molded parts require more time than extruded or calendered parts due to the intricate nature of the process, so please allow ample time when considering a mold job. We pride ourselves on producing excellent products, and will never send out parts that do not meet our customer’s requirements.  Once the mold has been built and a first article has been approved, parts can typically be produced in two weeks.  Orders requiring additional processes, such as PSA, inserts, splice, or extensive quality requirements, may require extra time and will be determined upon quoting.

REPEAT ORDERS can typically be completed in four (4) weeks.  For additional processes, such as PSA, splice, or extensive quality requirements, extra time may need to be added, and will be determined at the time of re-quoting.

IMPORTANT:  Lead times are for parts to be shipped from our facility, and not to arrive at your facility, please add shipping time to these dates.

Spliced Part Lead Times

200 PIECES OR LESS will take approximately six (6) weeks.  Every additional 150 pieces will require two (2) more weeks.  We carefully hot and cold bond splice our parts by hand, with high precision. This is a timely process, but the quality is well worth it!
