Most silicone rubber conforms to Notification No. 85 of the Ministry of Health and Welfare based on the Food Sanitation Law, so it can be used safely in tableware and cooking utensils. In addition, many LSR materials have obtained FDA approval and are said to be safer.
What are the advantages of integrated liquid silicone molding?
① No assembly work for O-rings, packing, etc. is required.
② Improved confidentiality is realized by bonding.
③ Improved functionality through hard and soft products.
How do you adhesive molding about different materials?
We apply our unique surface modification treatment (patented) to the primary component, insert it into the LIM mold, and insert-mold it to bond it.
What is the difference between LIM (injection molding of liquid silicone rubber) and compression molding?
The mold of LIM is more expensive than compression molding. However, LIM can accommodate three-dimensional shapes, composite processing, and precision molding. Also, LSR (liquid silicone rubber) has good flowability and enables thin-wall molding.
Yokoi has succeeded in developing a material with a high thermal conductivity (up to 30 W/K). Combined with the high radiation characteristics of plastic, the heat dissipation effect is enhanced. Optimal material proposals are possible depending on the application.
Can a more precise resin product be obtained by switching from injection molding to post-processing?
Post-processing after injection molding is, for example, similar to outer diameter polishing and numerical control (NC) lathe processing. The outer diameter runout accuracy of long objects can be achieved on the order of 10 μm, by post-processing. Post-processing of banknote transport rollers is performed at 10 μm, or less at Yokoi.
Is it possible to obtain injection molded products with highly accurate measurements?
The accuracy of our injection-molded products is typically determined by the choice of molding material, the optimal mold cooling circuit, structure and gate position, and molding conditions. Details will be determined and proposed in advance to obtain the optimal molded product.
