The liquid silicone rubber injection molding process delivers two-part liquid silicone directly into a mixer, which is then injected into the mold cavity. This completely closed process minimizes human interaction and avoids contamination. The fully automated process is best suited for high-volume production, although FMI can adapt it to lower volumes if needed.
Liquid silicone rubber injection molding is best suited for medium to high volume production runs. Low production runs require frequent material changes and start-ups, which erodes the efficiency of LIM.
