Why is it necessary to customize the mold for liquid silicone first?
The liquid silicone is used as the raw material for molding and is fed into a dedicated mixing system before being injected into a silicone injection molding machine. This machine then injects the liquid silicone into a heated mold at a specific pressure and speed to create the desired silicone product. This advanced molding method is highly efficient and allows for fully automated production without any burrs.
So why do we need to customize the mold for liquid silicone first? Here is a detailed explanation:Mold Opening: Customizing liquid silicone requires the mold to be opened in order to produce the desired product. Simply having the product drawing files is not enough to produce the actual product without the mold. When developing the mold, the corresponding product drawing files are necessary to create a mold that can produce the desired silicone product. It is important to focus on the product’s structure during mold development to ensure the production of aesthetically pleasing silicone products. Creating a mold solely based on poor structural design from product drawings would result in low-quality products.
Versatility: Liquid silicone molds can be used to make various silicone products. The size of the mold can be designed based on the desired product size. During production, liquid silicone materials are added, usually consisting of two components: A and B. These components are mixed at a specific temperature for a few seconds to form the desired silicone product. Examples of products commonly made using liquid silicone molds include silicone pacifiers, bottles, and other silicone products we often encounter
