Liquid silicone injection moulding
ZORGE is a specialist in liquid silicone rubber (LSR) injection moulding, also known as LIM. We have over 25 years of LSR injection moulding experience. This technique provides particularly ingenious alternatives to making components from solid silicone.
Higher productivity & more design options
Our LSR injection-moulding processes are fully automated, guaranteeing the highest levels of quality and consistency imaginable. LSR is known for its rapid cross-linking properties, which leads to shorter cycle times, higher productivity and reduced unit price, as compared to traditional silicon rubber production techniques. Another important characteristic is its very high flow-path-to-thickness ratio, which allows very small or high-precision components to be made with extremely thin walls.
It's even possible to use two-component techniques in combination with LSR injection moulding. This involves either coating a plastic component with LSR in a single operation using a rotational-moulding technique, or in two steps where the plastic component is coated in LSR.
ZORGE often uses modular moulding techniques in combination with interchangeable cold runners. Because our cold runners aren't included in the cost of making your moulds, you can cut your costs considerably. Our techniques also provide greater flexibility in terms of design, prototyping and ramp-up.
