May 02, 2011 Written by 
Shin-Etsu Silicones of America, Inc. and Arburg, Inc. recently co-hosted their 5th Annual Liquid Silicone Injection Molding Symposium at Arburg’s state-of-the-art Technology Center Midwest in Elgin, IL. 
Arburg, a manufacturer of injection molding machines for plastics processing, provided an LSR molding demonstration (shown in video) of its Allrounder 470 A (1000-70) running Shin-Etsu’s KEG2000-40 Series material in a 4-cavity baby nipple mold. Also shown is a CAE injection molding simulation. Adopted in the early phases of LIMS mold-making, computer-aided engineering software can determine thermal behaviors in steel molds prior to building.
