RDAbbott will demonstrate a revolutionary application for overmolding liquid silicone rubber (LSR) at MD&M West this year. RDAbbott, in partnership with M.R. Mold & Engineering Corp., will showcase a production cell where 50-durometer Dow SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 LSR, a low-temperature curing (LTC) elastomer for high-volume injection molding, is overmolded onto a custom-designed flying disc. Historically, LSR overmolding onto low-melting-point plastics and other thermally-sensitive components, such as electronics, has not been possible because of the high curing temperatures required.
RDAbbott is an organizer, sponsor and exhibitor for LSR 2019, the premiere event for liquid silicone rubber professionals. This year’s conference is scheduled for September 9-12, 2019, in Schaumburg, Illinois, and will include technical presentations, a new half-day workshop about LSR simulation at SIGMASOFT®, and a visit to equipment maker ARBURG to see silicone processing technologies. The keynote lecture is about design issues and will be followed by a panel discussion with silicone experts.
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 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.
We are looking forward to participating in the UWM School of Continuing Education’s 2019 Silicone Elastomers Technology and Fabrication Course February 12 – 15 at the Embassy Suites in Anaheim, CA.
