Apple Rubber Offers Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) Technology for High Quality Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) Parts and Seals


Apple Rubber Products, a leading designer and manufacturer of seals and sealing devices, has added Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) technology to its wide range of capabilities, enabling the company to deliver high quality silicone parts and seals with fast turnaround and competitive prices, depending on the complexity of the part. Silicone seals produced by Apple Rubber's LIM process provide consistency and cost-effectiveness for a wide variety of applications in industries from medical and electronics to automotive and appliances.

As a microprocessor-based, closed-loop system, the LIM process is highly repeatable from cycle to cycle and set-up to set-up. Apple Rubber's LIM presses provide the capability of monitoring SPC functions and producing printouts to further assure consistency and quality.

The LIM process minimizes raw material contamination by eliminating exposure to the environment. At the same time, Apple Rubber's silicone parts and seals are cost competitive due to savings associated with the LIM process. The process results in less scrap/material waste, and with the capability of fully automating the presses, it reduces labor costs. In addition, advanced molds and equipment maximize efficiency of the process.

Virtually any type of silicone part or seal is available from Apple Rubber, in a durometer range of 30-80 Shore A, including O-rings, gaskets, face seals, housing seals, and custom shapes. Apple Rubber's long-standing relationships with leading suppliers of silicone materials enable the company to tap supplier expertise and assure that customers have what they need, when they need it.

Apple Rubber can create and produce tooling for a wide range of O-rings sizes for fast response to prototype needs. Sophisticated equipment at AppleLab(TM), the company's full QC laboratory, allows Apple Rubber to offer both material and dimensional certification to meet customer requirements. Apple Rubber can provide standard and custom testing with full documentation.
