Due to increasing demand for silicone-molded components, Trelleborg has invested in new presses and other equipment designated specifically for silicone molding, including a material mixing station, cleanroom silicone storage, alcohol wash and tumbling machines and a packaging cell.
“We have increased our capacity for silicone molding while also refining the setup to leverage existing capabilities, such as the in-house tool room, to reduce lead times. The added space also enables us to expand our contract manufacturing capabilities to accommodate the increasing demand for product development,” said Dave Pool, general manager of the Delano facility.
The services performed at the Delano facility extend beyond technical silicone and thermoplastic molding to include assembly and secondary operations, in-house tool making, high-precision machining for micro molding and automation. The Delano facility is ISO 9001:2016 and ISO 13485 certified and is also FDA registered.
