Turnkey LSR Capabilities-Design to Prototyping, Tooling and Injection Molding Manufacturing
If you’re looking for a proven design to manufacturing resource for your custom LSR projects, we have you covered. LSR is among a large portfolio of elastomers our customers spec for projects requiring unique properties. For example, in medical device applications LSR is a common material choice because of its biocompatibility with body tissue.
Experts within our advanced materials lab can help you make the right materials choices. One of our material scientists will help you determine if the on-spec requirements are the best choice for the application, or if an alternative off-spec material choice will provide a higher level of quality, reliability and performance to the end product.
From designing, prototyping, tooling management, manufacturing, and distribution, we comply with all regulatory guidelines, including ISO 13485 and 21CFR820.…
What Are the Top Benefits of Using LSR Injection Molding?
For years, engineers have relied on LSR for high volume applications where the parts leave the line in a ready-to-ship state, which often positively impacts quality and cost. Because parts can be produced with minimal waste, LSR is an excellent elastomer option. The material is also ideal for applications requiring extreme low and high temperatures, and it provides excellent fluid compatibility across a broad range of environments...
Our LSR Customers Are Fortune 500 to Inc. 5000 to Startups
We have LSR customers in a multitude of demanding markets across a broad range of company sizes. As always, your engineering team will have quick and easy access to our technical teams to make sure your LSR project runs smoothly.
Turn to us to help you design and manufacture hard-to-build custom LSR parts. Whether it’s a turnkey multi-shot part with million-dollar tooling, a complex overmold, or a system-critical part for a wearable diabetes application, we have the resources and deep bench of expertise to deliver your toughest projects.
Designing and Creating LSR Prototypes with Manufacturing in Mind
Some customers call us after they discover the prototype they contracted to build was delivered with a minor flaw: unfortunately it couldn’t be manufactured. You’d be surprised how often that happens; in the haste to build a quick prototype, designers/engineers with limited elastomer experience end up with a seemingly perfect design, yet it’s impossible to manufacture at scale.
We collaborate with you early in the project to focus on quality and better understand the design input and output requirements of your custom parts. Allowing us to better understand the design intent of the product, will lead to a smoother product launch, greatly reducing future risk. Examples of questions we will help you answer include:
We’ll Help You Avoid and Mitigate Significant Risks in LSR Projects
We’ll collaborate with you early in a project to help you consider quality and certifications to avoid rework that increases cost and delays projects. Rely on us to:
The more we work together and share information the more our experts can help anticipate your needs and avoid and mitigate risks to your project.
We wrote this for design engineers because you don’t have time to become a rubber or plastics expert. That’s our job.
