M.R. Mold partners with RD Abbott at MDM West and NPE

M.R. Mold & Engineering is a global leader in the design and manufacture of injection molds for liquid silicone rubber (LSR), silicone gumstock, thermoset and thermoplastics. From concept through completion, M.R. Mold applies the expertise and technology to speed your product to market.  Product development, design, engineering, manufacturing, validation and molding are all performed in-house.
LSR poses challenges that do not exist in the plastics industry. M.R. Mold has 34 years of experience creating solutions to those challenges.

Liquid Silicone Injection Molds
M.R. Mold builds tight tolerance, complex geometry, flash less silicone injection molds for the medical, dental, consumer product and automotive industries.
In partnership with Krauss Maffei, Booth #W403, M.R. Mold will showcase a 4 cavity in-mold slitting duckbill mold featuring a 4-drop cold runner system running fully automatic. The in-mold slitting is part of the mold automation with specific molding machine sequencing.  M.R. Mold will partner with Makura USA in Booths #W911 and W1103 featuring a 4 cavity magnifying glass from optically clear silicone. A 1-drop cold runner system on our universal base will feature ejection that presents the part for robotic removal.  In Zieger Industries' Booth #5483, M.R. Mold will demonstrate it's technology with a 2 cavity LSR mold for a high beam automotive application. The exhibit will demonstrate how silicone can be molded in applications that plastics are incapable of doing.
R.D. Abbott Promotes LAM 3D Printer using Silastic LC-3335
In M.R. Mold's Booth #W4391, R.D. Abbott will showcase the latest addition to their technical services portfolio, a Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) 3D printer. 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 LC 3335 LSR is potentially capable of printing functional prototypes and enabling small manufacturing trials of complex parts. Further, the material properties closely match those of molded LSR, allowing an easy transfer into injection molding processes for high volume manufacturing.
