What was first simulated on the PC now needs to be tested on the real product. For the validation of the product design on the real component, we use real components but also test plates for pull tests to check the dynamic material parameters and the elongation. In the plug-in test, for example, attention is paid to how much force is required to assemble the product.
Leak tests as well as long-term temperature and climate tests shorten the development times and check the function of the part even before it goes into series production. Ongoing tests for material development show us general mechanical properties of various materials.
It is also possible to create functional models within a very short time.
At starlim, we have extensive material and process knowledge about the phenomenon of silicone. With reference to your requirements, we start with the product development together.
In our in-house tool shop, the molds for the injection molding production of the starlim are designed and built. This makes us flexible and independent.
Receiving the first near-series LSR parts from starlim after just 10 days is possible thanks to rapid tooling from sterner. This concept was developed in order to be able to offer customers the first injection molded parts within a short period of time.
With the help of a test tool, we can manufacture the first LSR injection molded parts for starlim’s customers under series conditions within a very short time.
Micro injection molding
Micro injection molding
At starlim, components are manufactured in large series as standard, which have a weight of at least 10mg. We refer to silicone components under 10mg as micro injection molding.
In order to have a controlled environment for the production of the purest silicone parts, starlim has its own clean room. This is certified according to the classes ISO 14644-1 class 7 & 8 as well as GMP class C&D.
In the fully automatic injection molding process, one-component and multi-component parts are made from silicone at starlim. Production takes place at the Austrian locations in Marchtrenk, Weißkirchen and Lambach as well as in our Canadian branch in London / Ontario.
