Continuous vulcanization line for the manufacturing of rubber bands

Rubber bands are used in big scale in industry, agriculture, food, medical, but also for office and home applications.

Due to the high elasticity majority of rubber bands are made of natural rubber and especially in countries with natural rubber plantations.

Still nowadays the Production especially the curing process is batchwise and manual, which requires a significant man power at a comparable low output.

Rubicon manufactures high productive and efficient continuous rubber band extrusion lines.

With our high output vacuum extruders and special designed LCM vulcanization lines rubber bands could be made continuously from thickness 0.8 to 5 mm with diameter from 10 to 150 mm. Depending on line configuration we reach capacities from 150 to 650 kg/h. Thanks to an incorporated salt water recycling unit there is no environment pollution due to salty water.
