Silicone Molders

Page history last edited by Chris Miksovsky 10 years, 11 months ago

I WROTE:

 

Hi Everybody,

 

I'm looking for a vendor to make some silicone parts for me.  The

silicone bit will be like a jacket on the outside of the product--like

those little bumper jackets they put on wii controllers.

 

Any leads would be much appreciated.  I'll compile and post.

 

Happy Spring!

THE RESPONSES:

 

you might try hanaco. they make keypads but there's no reason they might not be be able to make your part.

I would highly recommend trying Model Solution out of Korea. They have been fast, cheap, and high quality every time I've used them. I pretty much don't use anyone else anymore.

Good luck!

A friend of mine and fellow PD alum Mario Madrigal works at ProtoCafe (www.protocafe.com)...I know they have a pretty wide range of capabilities, but I'm pretty sure they could do something like this.

 

His email address is mario.madrigal@protocafe.com and his work number is 650.369.4678

 

Hope that helps!

Not sure if this is exactly what your looking for but, Erick Dunn is a local (SF) moldmaker whose made some good (relatively low tech) polyurethane parts for me from fdm originals.   I use him for prototyping.  His # is 4153683420.
Good luck!

For production, I recommend Advanced Engineering and Molding Technology.

They are molding a silicon pump seal for me right now.  They're in

Riverside, but offer pretty competitive pricing when you factor in import

duties on parts made in China.  The contact is:
