Silicone Molding

ProMed has been specializing in the molding of small, silicone components for Class III, long term implants since 1989. Silicone molded components are processed within one of several Class 10,000 clean-rooms using the technology required to support your design, material selection, and cost-structure requirements. Their New Product Development process has supported thousands of parts and welcomes the opportunity to launch your product(s) successfully. Additionally, ProMed has two manufacturing sites with one location in Minneapolis, MN and the second in Dorado, Puerto Rico.

Silicone has unique material characteristics that enable parts to be molded with intricate features, significant undercuts, surface finishes, and tight tolerances. ProMed offers custom compounding to meet the performance essentials of your design.

    Liquid Injection Molding (LIM)
    This process utilizes a liquid silicone rubber (LSR) which results in a short molding cycle enabling a cost effective part. This material and process is typically used for medium to high production runs.

    High Consistency Injection Molding
    Very similar to LIM molding except the material is a high consistency rubber (HCR – “gum-stock” rubber).

    Transfer Molding
    Typically consists of “transferring” a high consistency rubber (commonly referred to as a HCR or “gum-stock”) silicone from the exterior of a mold through a sprue and runner system into the cavities of a mold.

    RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanisation) Casting
    ProMed has developed the ability to compound and deliver 2-part RTV compounds in a closed delivery system.

    Micro Molding
    A common definition for a micro-molded part is typically a part with a mass of 1 gram or less or a part with a total volume of less than 0.003 cubic inches. To put this in perspective, a micro-molded part can be smaller than a piece of rice or a resin pellet.
    Whether your micro-molded part material is a silicone or a thermoplastic material, ProMed’s qualified engineering staff can assist in design for manufacturability of your micro-molded part. Common elements for consideration will be material selection, tolerances, gate size and location, part ejection, length to diameter ratios and component configuration for moldability.

    About

    ProMed

    ProMed was founded in 1989 to address an industry need for cleanroom manufacturing of silicone components, specifically those having a medical application. Wayne Kelly, owner of ProMed since 2003, has devoted his entire career to medical manufacturing. His reputation in the industry rests solidly on treating employees well and striving to provide customers with the very best that his company can offer. In less than 10 years, ProMed’s sales grew six times while broadening the product offerings to include assembly, micro-molding of highly engineered plastics, and combination products.
