Liquid Silicone Molding is also called Silicone Injection Molding, Liquid Silicone Injection Molding, Liquid Injection Molding (LIM), Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding & Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding, which is used to produce liquid silicone rubber products by injection machines for babycare products, medical devices, electronic parts and high safety and strict tolerance products. Liquid Silicone Molding does not like traditional silicone rubber compression machines, and which is more precise, safer, and with highly effeciency.
Liquid Silicone Molding is a good choice for silicone baby products: silicone baby nipples, silicone baby bottles, silicone breast pump, silicone duckbill valve for breast pump, which with large quantity and need clean production plant for production. And also for many baby products need FDA certificates will need LSR as material by liquid injection molding. As liquid silicone is inorganic nature material, which is clean, plasticizer-free, tasteless, and can resist oxidation and bacteria growth, and can meet UPS Class VI, BFR XV, FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 etc. Many solid silicone can not meet FDA certificates.
Liquid Silicone Molding is the only choice for medical grade and biocompatilibity projects. Such as CPAP Nasal Mask, LSR Silicone Breathing Mask, Full Face Mask for Medical Resuscitator & Respirator. Liquid Silicone molding is a natural fit for making medical devices out of silicone because LSR’s low viscosity allows the mold cavities to be filled quicker and at lower pressures. LIM’s short molding cycles produce cost-effective parts in medium- or high-volume production runs, making it a popular choice for our OEM customers.
Liquid Silicone Molding's Two forming ways: Vertical and Horizontal
Horizontal moulding machine: with horizontal code mold, easy to achieve automatic production.Horizontal direct pressure clamping ensures the clamping force be steady and equally distribution.
Vertical silicone injection molding machine: with vertical mold, standing frame mold, requires manual pick and place products, such as Insert molding. Vertical clamping, vertical injection. Space-saving compact design makes the product take-out more convenient.
Liquid Silicone Molding's Advantages:
Quality Stability: Stable LSR product's sizes and designs for each batch, suit to manufacturing repeatability.
Short Cycle Time: About 15 seconds.
High Precision: Mini parting line, sizes tolerance can less +/- 0.02mm, especially for 2 shot & overmolded production.
Flashless Technology: No or less elastomer silicone rubber burrs.
Direct Injection: No or less waste.
Safest Manufacturing Process: Platinum cured silicone, medical & food FDA grade silicone molded production in clean room.
Automated Manufacturing Systems: work like plastic injection molded by mechanical arm and assembly line.
Automatic Demolded: Automated Ejection.
