UWM Silicone Elastomers Technology and Fabrication Course (February 12 – 15)

We are looking forward to participating in the UWM School of Continuing Education’s 2018 Silicone Elastomers Technology and Fabrication Course February 12 – 15 at the Embassy Suites in Anaheim, CA. We have also been given the opportunity to showcase the latest addition to our technical services portfolio, a Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) 3D printer, during their tour of M.R. Mold & Engineering’s facilities in Brea on Wednesday, February 14.

This revolutionary, patent-pending LAM 3D Printer was developed in collaboration with German RepRap GmbH, a leading German manufacturer of 3D printers, and Dow Performance Silicones.

German RepRap’s LAM platform combined with Dow Performance Silicones’ 3D Printable SILASTIC™ 3D 3335 Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is potentially capable of printing functional prototypes and enabling small manufacturing trials of complex parts. Further, the material’s properties closely match those of molded LSR, allowing an easy transfer into injection molding processes for high-volume manufacturing.
