ProFIT project InnoWerk - Development of innovative moulds for liquid silicone injection moulding

Lupe

Project duration: 01.03.2020 - 30.08.2022

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund [ERDF].

Components made of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) are increasingly being used in future-oriented industries such as medical technology, electrical engineering, automotive engineering and for articles of daily use. This makes economical production on a small and large scale using liquid silicone injection molding necessary. However, liquid silicone processing places very high demands on the molding tools (Fig. 1), which can only be met by mold and tool making companies at very great expense. Therefore, the high-precision molding tools required for liquid silicone injection molding are manufactured exclusively by specialized companies at very high costs. As a result, small and medium-sized mould and tool makers are threatened with a loss of customers in the rapidly growing liquid silicone market, especially to international competitors.
