Optimum support in your project

We accompany you atetchingd to theofmade of silicon each project step

We are your all round solution: In every project phase you can rely on our many years of experience. Either we have the right solution or we develop it. On request, from feasibility studies to design and tooling, through final finishing, we take on every step in the manufacture of your finished silicone components.

Decide for yourself, in which phase your silicone component will be managed by Silcos.
We take care of every project step and support our customers from and in all phases of development as well as throughout the entire production cycle.

  • Many years of experience and wide ranging know-how

 

Silicone parts by injection moulding

We also produce sophisticated components

We produce silicone mouldings in series. Complex geometries or sophisticated designs are no problem for us, rather they are part of our everyday routine.

We inject silicone parts using the LIM process (Liquid Injection Moulding) with liquid silicone rubber (Liquid Silicone Rubber = LSR), including multi-component parts with thermoplastics. In the LIM process, in contrast to conventional thermoplastic injection moulding, the molten silicone is not injected into the mould, but fed cold to the mould and vulcanised at 180-200°C. Due to the high degree of automation, this method is ideal for large quantities.

We also produce parts from HTV solid silicone rubber by compression or injection moulding. This method is mainly used for small to medium quantities. It is also ideal for difficult to automate process sequences and geometries.

By using different manufacturing processes, we can realise every complicated and technically demanding component.
