SIMTEC Silicone Parts, a US-based leader in LSR and LSR multi-shot injection molding, has added a Class 8 Clean Room to respond to demand from its life science customers. According to Frank Dilly, SIMTEC’s Managing Director, “Medical device OEMs like our highly automated technology and have requested we add a clean room to our production.” SIMTEC’s ISO Class 8 Clean Room features a smart layout with material staging and tool change occurring outside the clean room. Parts from fully-automated 1-shot and 2-shot lines are robotically removed and transported within a controlled enclosure and delivered into the clean room for inspection, post-curing and bagging. The design and infrastructure in place also allows for quick expansion and growth.
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) parts and components are particularly well-suited for medical devices, mother and child care products, sanitary products, and others products with hygienic requirements. LSR is inert, resistant to many substances, and because it’s bio-compatible it works well for products with skin contact. LSR parts that are used in medical devices additionally require that production is in a hygienic controlled environment, and many may also require sterilization.
If your company needs medical industry manufacturing parts, you cannot afford to cut corners when it comes to quality. Custom silicone injection molded parts play a prominent role by adding function to medical devices that are critical to the health of the person who uses them.
Food-grade liquid silicone rubber (LSR) was introduced in the late 1970s and is now a premier material used for many food-related consumer products. This elastomer is suitable for use in food production, storage and preparation — and it has a wide range of uses and benefits.
