Röchling Medical is your single source for all your molding requirements. Our services span from micro applications through high volume/high cavitation programs and beyond. All our equipment, personnel, and quality systems are selected to insure higher product quality, heightened traceability, better process control, and shorter downtimes.
Multi-component Injection Molding
Multi-component injection molding producing two color or two component injected molded parts from two different thermoplastic materials in one process, automatically and cost effectively. There are many benefits from utilizing this process including lower part costs, the elimination of secondary operations, and enhanced product features and appeal.
Silicone Injection Molding
Molded parts made from liquid silicone (LSR) or solid silicone (HTV) are extremely elastic, odorless and tasteless, chemical, UV, ageing and temperature resistant. Silicone Injection Molding is utilized for applications that require high precision such as seals, sealing membranes, electric connectors, multi-pin connectors & applications where smooth surfaces are desired. Often, silicone injection molded parts are over molded in a secondary step with a different type of plastic.
Thermoplastic Injection Molding
Most plastic parts are manufactured via Thermoplastic injection molding. Thermoplastics are polymers that can be heated to soften or melt, and cooled to solidify as a physical change, rather than a chemical change that takes place during molding of thermoset materials. Röchling has the equipment, people, and training to maximize thermoplastic injection molding process. Our goal is to deliver the lowest possible cycle times and the highest possible quality levels on every program we launch.
Over- & Insert Molding
Röchling Medical is a true expert in combining materials through molding efficiency and state-of-the art molding technologies. Over Molding and Insert Molding is where Röchling Medical sets itself apart from the competition. Röchling has mastered over molding delicate materials that include delicate wires and tubing, but also high value complex metal components produced by machining, MIM, or stamping. Röchling’s capabilites and can reduce final product cost by limiting the amount of costly metal needed to create medical parts. By utilizing over & injection molding the need for soldering, fasteners, connectors, or adhesives can often be eliminated:
- Reduced Assembly Time and Cost
- Reduced Part Size and Weight
- Increased Completed-Part Accuracy and Performance Reliability
- Expanded Part Design Flexibility
Thermoplastic Elastomer Injection Molding (TPE)
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) combine the valuable and versatile properties of rubber and plastic.
Micro Injection Molding
Micro-components are often smaller than a single grain of resin. But being successful at micro injection molding is much more than just making small parts. It starts with the ability to create molds that are precise even at the micro level and then combine that with the metrology that can measure the parts once produced. It requires part handling and packaging expertise and a mentality that is different than a traditional injection molder. This is what you will find when you partner with Röchling for your micro medical applications.
