An Application of Estimate Expert System Technology for Burrless Rubber Mould Manufacturing Process
Rubber products have durable, lightweight, and shockproof properties, which allow them to be used in various industries. As demand on products with elaborate shape and parts and minimized occurrence of burrs has increased in high-precision industries, particularly in IT, BT, and NT, moulding technology becomes an essential technology to develop core objects composing frames for assembly and elementary parts that produce ultra small machines and basic components of MEMS and NEMS. Despite the technological demand, rubber-related moulding technology has not been standardized, and its total process – shaping, design, production, and test – has not been systemized, which results in low productivity in rubber products. This study is to standardize and systematize the rubber product production process by evaluating the cost estimation of moulding production process and to improve occurring problems during the process. The subject of the study was burrless rubber product moulding process.
