Last time we leant how to place and order for the custom silicone wristband, now let us see how the wristband is made in the factory.
There are 8 steps to make a rubber bracelet.
Design the artwork. An artwork includes the information of order number, size, logo style, order quantity and other options like glowing and individual pack. It shows what the bracelet looks like with your message or logo.
Make the mould or film. A mould is needed for debossed, embossed, colorfilled styles. It is made from copper. A film is functioned like a mould but it is for printed wristband only.
Prepare the rubber material. A rubber bracelet is mainly made from silicone rubber, and some other accessories like curing agent which solidify the soft rubber, and Color masterbatch which makes bracelet colored.
Produce bracelets by the mould. As we mentioned before in 2nd and 3rd step, we will transfer the blocks to bracelets by a set of moulding machine of high temperature.
Edge cutting. A semi-product of rubber bracelet has rough edges, we have to cut it off. It is cut by machine.
Color the logo and wording. The bracelet comes out from moulding machine without colors on the logo and lettering. We have to fill the ink or print the ink on the bracelet.
Clean the product and packing. As the bracelet has static electricity, dust will be on the surface and hard to move off. We count the quantity by weighting. Normally packing will be 100pcs/bag, and 2500pcs/ctn.
