The One-Stop-Shop for all Silicone Molding Needs
GW Plastics is in a select class of injection molders to offer the benefits of in-house mold design-and-build on an international scale. Known globally for our innovation and dedication to excellence, our capabilities have continued to grow to include in-house Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) tooling at our affiliate, GW Silicones. We underwent an extensive global search to assemble the most experienced engineering and tooling team possible, and by hiring tool designers who trained with the best in the world, we bring a level of confidence to our LSR tooling that is unparalleled in the US.
Building precision LSR tools requires advanced technological capabilities, a zero-defect culture, and the highest levels of design integrity. In order to accomplish this, GW Silicones has adopted and applied the same standards of excellence that have been established from GW Plastics’ storied reputation as a world-class thermoplastics moldmaker. Understanding the differences and complexities of silicone tooling versus thermoplastic tooling, we have developed a robust LSR tooling standard to ensure that very fine details and tight tolerances are maintained for years of trouble-free production.
Benefits of In-House LSR Tooling
- Improved time-to-market through in-house prototyping and high volume production tooling offering complete project control from design to production
- Early design for manufacturability (DFM) collaboration based on years of successful LIM
- Seamless communication with tool designers, program managers, and process engineers all under one roof
- Cost efficiency and improved quality through innovative tooling and molding techniques such as automatic and flashless molding
