LSR seminar in Bangkok

504
  • Speakers present new LSR (liquid silicone rubber) technologies and latest projects
  • From engine compartment connectors to respiratory masks
  • Participants are invited to bring along own sample parts
  • LSR processing industry has experienced very strong growth in SEA

Applications based on liquid silicone rubber are rapidly expanding in South-East Asia. The LSR seminar highlights the new challenges facing processors to find economic solutions through innovative processing technologies. The seminar is hosted by Engel in collaboration with Momentive Performance Materials and Elmet and takes place at the Plastics Institute of Thailand in Bangkok on 1 September. After several successful events in China and Korea, the partner companies are now holding their first joint seminar in South-East Asia.

From engine compartment connectors to respiratory masks

The speakers in Bangkok will present completed projects using sample parts and videos and will describe new possibilities. One of the sample exhibits includes a sensor housing for flow rate measurement with an integrated seal. The exhibits are produced on a tie-bar-less Engel e-victory combi injection moulding machine coupled to an integrated Engel viper linear robot.

As quality requirements become more stringent, the focus is shifting towards integrated processes. Bonding thermoplastic and LSR in the injection moulding process opens up new market opportunities.

Participants are invited to bring along own sample parts

Besides specific applications, the lectures present innovative machine concepts, process technologies, dosing systems, cold runner technologies, automated mould concepts as well as new materials and their properties. During the breaks between lectures and the business lunch, participants can examine a wide range of silicon products, even handle them and talk to experts about them. The products themselves consist of one or even several material components. In the afternoon, representatives from Engel, Momentive and Elmet are available for one-on-one talks. The participants are invited to bring along their own sample parts, CAD drawings and product ideas.

Liquid silicon processing is an important branch of the economy in South-East Asia. Among other products, baby pacifiers are produced in very large volumes.

LSR processing industry has experienced very strong growth in SEA

The LSR processing industry in South-East Asia has experienced very strong growth in the past few years, especially in Thailand. Among other products, baby pacifiers and other baby care items are produced in very large volumes. Multi-component technology now opens up new market opportunities for companies. The development of this technology is mainly driven by the automotive, teletronics and medical industries. Demand from the automotive industry for integrated solutions is, for example, for the production of engine compartment connectors, optical components and lighting systems. In the teletronics sector, the focus is on function elements in smartphones and tablets; and in the medical field, the new challenges include joint implants, respiratory masks and components for measuring instruments.
