At PTG Silicones, we feature a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that’s fully equipped for automated, world-class silicone molding. We’re capable of liquid silicone rubber (LSR/LIM) molding, LSR over-molding, elastomer molding, high-performance thermoplastic molding, prototype molding, and production molding. We also offer material specification services. We can handle mold dimensions as small as 8” x 8” x 10” and as large as 20” x 24” x 36”; achieving tolerances as tight as +/-0.005”. Our equipment can work with molds that contain 1 to 128 cavities. They’re also capable of clamping forces as low as 25 tons and as high as 160 tons. In addition, we can handle shots sizes ranging from 0.5g to 200g within a single injection stroke. All of our molds are precision engineered to achieve tight tolerances with minimal flash.
We’ve outfitted our facility with a wide range of molding and infrastructure equipment from prominent manufacturers in the industry. This includes Arburg electric-hydraulic molding machines, Graco pumping systems, robotics and automation from Stäubli, Cognex and Keyence machine vision systems, Novatec material handling systems and dryers, and Mitutoyo metrology equipment. With our Class 100,000 cleanroom, we can conduct sterile molding processes that are free of dust, microbes, particles, and vapors. We have years of experience working with an array of materials including various silicones, nylon, PEEK, polycarbonate, PBT, PET, thermoplastic elastomers, thermoplastic rubbers, and much more. Our services span the entire product development process; offering assembly, slitting and die cutting, engineering, material selection, mold specification, post curing, surface treatment, and pre-production tooling. From single prototypes to high volume runs, we’re geared to handle virtually any production capacity.
By employing the latest automation technologies, we’re able to conduct lights out manufacturing in order to improve quality and reduce the customer’s costs. Our Six Sigma certified team is always seeking new ways to increase the value of our services. We’re environmentally conscience and practice lean manufacturing methods in order to reduce waste. Our molds are used in applications such as gaskets, flow control valves, and seals. From health care to industrial electronics, we’ve supported numerous industries worldwide. We can provide full compliance with standards by ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003. To learn more about our silicone molding capabilities, please contact us or refer to the table below.
