Overview of Silicone Molding 3D Printed Tooling

By |2024-05-17T08:35:37-04:00May 17th, 2024|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Traditional molds for silicone part production are CNC machined from blocks of aluminum or steel. These include two-part or multi-part injection molds for liquid silicone rubbers (LSR), or single cavity compression molds used with a heat-cured rubber (HCR) silicone sheet that is cured under pressure and high temperature. Normally these types of metal molds are used in mass production. However, when employed for prototyping, lead times of several weeks and upfront tooling costs of hundreds [...]
