    The best raw materials ensure high quality finished parts.  Consult a Gallagher engineer on your silicone needs.

Liquid Injection Molding, or Liquid Silicone Injection Molding, is a molding process used for higher volume, smaller sized components.  This versatile process is aided by the ability for liquid silicone to tolerate high heat and flame resistance.  Additional high tensile strength and flexibility result in accurate finished parts. 

Common industries that utilize LIM are the automotive industry, medical device manufacturers and consumer product applications.  Parts are produced with minimal gate indications, and through cryogenic de-flashing, flash can be reduced from 0.010" to 0.005." 

Tooling considerations in injection molding are paramount.  Gallagher works with the strongest tool manufactures to reduce cost, and optimize tool design for your component.  Small cavity molds are produced to validate design concept and prototype small runs if virtual FEA analysis tools are not sufficient.

Gallagher engineers have recently began utilizing 3-D printing technology to produce molds that allow SLA injectable material for the production of prototype parts to validate application form, fit and function.
