Sil-Pro announces new capability to produce tooling and functional prototype silicone or thermoplastic parts within 3 to 5 days. This new capability is of great benefit for the medical device community and has been thoroughly tested by Sil-Pro for the last year. With Sil-Pro’s recent expansion of 25,000 square feet of dedicated tool shop, plus capital investment into a 5-axis high speed machining cell with robot tending for lights out 24/7 production, Sil-Pro has the high speed capabilities.
Sil-Pro adds additional estimating and tooling staff to streamline all internal processes to support the 3-5 day turn around service. Now an engineer can email or upload a Solid Model and Sil-Pro expedites all necessary evaluation, estimating, and final quotation for approval. Once the customer approves the quotation, tool building begins and can be completed within 2 days, and molded prototype parts in 2-3 days.
Sil-Pro’s Jet Tooling service includes these additional benefits:
- In-house inventory of both pre-hard and hardened stainless steel inserts
- Wider selection of materials versus other prototype services
- Can become bridge type tooling to pre-production and smaller production runs
- Saves money in long run and enhances Design for Manufacturability
Sil-Pro is an ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 certified contract manufacturer specializing in molded and extruded silicone, thermoplastics and full-service medical device contract manufacturing and assembly.
