Waste-less manufacturing of Complex, High Quality LSR Parts
Building molds for liquid silicone rubber processing requires high precision. Due to the low viscosity of LSR, it is challenging to prevent flash in the tiniest of gaps. Simultaneously, product designs are increasing in complexity. LSR molds require a high level of engineering, machining and processing precision.
The Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical automated approach to LSR processing is unique. From stage one, tooling design is developed to:
- Optimize the function of a component in the application
- Maximize the effectiveness of automated operations
Flash-less part and tool design, waste-less process, in-process quality checks, batching by cavity and packaging are considerations that are always made.
