With a recent growth in the demand of the rubber products globally, the latest technology is adopted to improve the design and manufacturing of those rubber products in term of part quality and production lead time and cost. The cold runner system is one of the technologies which can assist in unfilling part problem and raw material saving. Nevertheless, with the lack of numerical tool with an ability to predict the behavior of rubber during the injection molding process, designers still need to use their experience and trial-and-error method to design the mold and the cold runner system. Therefore, in this research, the use of CAE and a cold runner system is applied to the design and manufacturing of rubber injection molding process with a gasket mold made of SBR as a case study. The empirical and simulated results agree well and the use of raw material in the actual system is decreased by 12% shot weight which can lead to the reduced cost of products. Finally, it can be seen that the use of CAE can assist the mold designers and manufacturers to get better understanding of flow pattern and behavior of rubber during the injection process so the better part quality can be obtained.
