We can only do that because of our experience, continued investment, knowledge of materials and a commitment to deliver excellence.
No two products are ever the same. Each has a unique function with specific performance criteria and our expertise lies in matching our customers’ requirements with the correct tools, materials and moulding techniques for the job.
We design, manufacture and assemble rubber, thermoplastic and both solid and liquid silicone parts all under one roof; our state-of-the-art, 14,000sqft factory in Northampton, United Kingdom.
Expert Knowledge in the Rubber Industry
Our expert knowledge of the rubber industry is supported by our continued investment in the latest moulding technology.
We have an extensive range of modern rubber injection presses ranging from with a 20 to 450 tonnes. These are supported by a number of thermoplastic injection presses which process Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE), Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) and standard Thermoplastics (PP, Nylon, etc.).
To complement our moulding processes we also operate two cryogenic deflashing machines and a silicone rubber post-curing oven to ensure the correct flawless finish to our products.
As well as conventional compression, transfer and injection moulding, Burnetts is also fully capable of carrying out post moulding work, including punching, stamping, cutting, welding assembly and point-of-sale packing.
Our QC laboratory incorporates non-contact CNC measurement apparatus and a range of test equipment including a climatic chamber, a rheometer, tensometer and a vent pressure testing rig.
We continually strive to automate our manufacturing processes to reduce costs ensure accuracy. We use our considerble experience to design and engineer solutions for our customers exacting requirements.
Burnetts prides itself on being at the forefront of clean rubber moulding techniques and our Northampton factory utilises a central fume extraction system which is constantly monitored to maintain a clean working environment.
This together with localised air filtration systems ensures that we clean the air in our facility three times a day.
