Micro-injection molding at its best with LSR – ahead

A part weight of 0.375 g leaves little room for deviations, right?

Cordula Wieland:

We are helped here by the APC plus machine function. Particularly when working with silicone, you have to expect significant batch fluctuations, which can then lead to overfilling or underfilling. APC plus adjusts the changeover point from shot to shot and thus causes the weight to remain extremely uniform. Even if there are interruptions in production, start-up is very easy. Another advantage: There is clean demolding through automation starting from the first shot, which is usually possible only with great difficulty, particularly for such small components.

In medical technology, traceability is everything. How can you ensure this?

Cordula Wieland:

We have in-house specialists for this in the Digital Service Solutions business unit. For example, our dataXplorer data analysis tool can save up to 500 signals per second as continuous curves and thereby document the manufacturing sequences comprehensively. It is like a magnifying glass for the entire process. The automation for this project also includes packaging of the membranes in bags. A QR code is printed on this, which then leads to the individualized process data for the respective articles.

Are there actually any new developments in the area of silicone processing?

Cordula Wieland:

Yes, on the whole we have a generation shift in the materials and even new properties, such as self-healing silicone. The new types place even more stringent requirements on the machine and processing competence. In this respect, the area remains very exciting—and we are glad to be leading the way.
