Speed, cost, and approximation of the final part design (including properties and dimensions) are the three key points when selecting a suitable method for making silicone prototyping. There are more choices for silicone parts, which makes the development process for silicone products more challenging.
Silicone 3D printing is an option for silicone prototyping for the new elastic materials specifically made for 3D printing. With the surprising growth development of additive manufacturing technology and product manufacturing, equipment costs are falling rapidly.Silicone 3D Printing is a technology without tooling and can work automatically without inspection. A small volume of parts can be available for the technology within hours.But for precise and fine parts, accuracy may be a challenge, and large volume production（>100）is not practical.
LSR is a common technology in manufacturing silicone sample parts with production equivalent injection molding machines and production-grade materials in soft metal molds. This method can achieve quick tooling making and manufacturing of parts. Enough accuracy but a higher cost for small-volume manufacturing.
(3) HCR( High Consistency Rubber) Molding
It is a simple manufacturing process used to make parts with HCR. Putting HCR material into a heated cavity to solidify and manufacture the part. The process is easy, but it is not available for complex geometric parts. At the same time, HCR owns a longer cycle time than LAR.
(4) RTV((Room Temperature Vulcanization)
According to the definition, RTV will cure at temperatures, although the work will keep hours, ovens are often used to speed up the pace of curing of materials.
We make prototypes for industries:
Being experienced prototype makers, we make all kinds of functional prototypes, display prototypes, miniatures, throwaway prototypes, 3d prints, single versions of a lot, scale prototypes, etc.
