Military

Reuther Mold started designing and manufacturing molds for the military from the beginning in 1950s. We have produced injection, injection transfer, transfer, and compression molds used with many different black rubber military parts. We have also produced many types of tooling for composite military parts.

We have produced molds for military rubber parts include personal protective equipment for gas masks, nose cups, and nose cups with plastic molded-in inserts and exhalation flaps. Other military rubber components where molds were designed and manufactured by Reuther Mold include Minuteman rocket engine diaphragm, Patriot missile engine casing, wheels, track pads, track shoes, and track bushings for many different military tracked vehicles – tanks and personnel carriers and submarine sonar coverings.

Since the 1990s Reuther Mold has designed and manufactured tooling for composite military components including RTM tools for the F-22 and F-35 fighter planes and the Comanche helicopter. Our capabilities have greatly expanded in this area as Reuther Mold now designs and manufactures resin transfer molds, preform molds, debulk molds, machining fixtures, assembly fixtures, inspection fixtures, and vacuum lay-up tools for the military composite components. Recently, we designed and manufactured the complete tooling stream for the Apache helicopters from preform tools to lay-up molds to machining and assembly fixtures. Military composite tooling has been manufactured from many different materials: Invar 36, P-20, 1025, A36, and aluminum. Our expertise includes manufacturing tooling from welded Invar 36 and cast Invar 36 materials.

Whether the military tooling needs are for small or large tools we have the experience, the expertise, and the facility to be your rubber tooling supplier.
