RDAbbott is proud to announce its partnership with Toshiba Machine in Hall 15, Booth B04, at the K 2019 in Germany to produce an automotive LED headlamp optic made of Dow SILASTIC™ MS-1002 Moldable Optical Silicone. All participating partners in this collaborative production cell include: Toshiba Machines, EPF Automation, Dow, ELMET, M.R. Mold & Engineering, Frigel, Yushin America, Inc., LumenFlow Corp., and RDAbbott.
RDAbbott and Rubber Division, ACS have partnered together to produce a new video called, “Rubber: It’s Not Just Tires.” The video demonstrates the significance of rubber in everyday life and was designed to introduce the next generation of workers to this extraordinary industry. The video also includes footage from The Dow Chemical Company, ARLANXEO, 3M, and HALLSTAR.
Come by and see us in Booth 1673 at the RAPID + TCT conference May 20 – 23, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. RDAbbott will be showcasing German RepRap’s first production-ready L280 Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) 3D printer using Dow’s SILASTIC™ 3D 3335 Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR).
RDAbbott will demonstrate a revolutionary L280 LAM 3D printer in M.R. Mold & Engineering’s Booth #1346 at MD&M West in Anaheim, California, from February 5 to 7. Rick Ziebell, Technology Fellow for RDAbbott, will also present a paper, “LAM of Silicone Rubber Components,” on February 5 from 3:15 to 4:00 PM. MD&M West attendees who are seeking greater design possibilities, finer controls, and significantly faster times-to-market are invited to learn more.
RDAbbott is an authorized supply partner for ARLANXEO’s Tire and Specialty Rubbers (TSR) and High-Performance Elastomers (HPE). We invite you to check out this helpful video as it provides an excellent overview of the diverse applications and industries where ARLANXEO’s high-performance polymers are used.
From all of us at RDAbbott, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. To help you get into the holiday spirit, check out our special rendition of Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree. Enjoy!
