a quest to expand silicone rubber applications

As a silicone manufacturing company, CONIEX’s goal was to push the boundaries of the applications and markets where their silicone molding products could be used. Solving the injection molding problem was the main goal of the management team, so back in 2006, the company started intense R&D projects to make it happen.

In its HQ in Barcelona, the company has its R&D and benchmarking labs, silicone manufacturing plant, and end-products warehouses.

SiOCAST is a company born in 2017 as a spin-off of CONIEX Group. For the last 35 years, CONIEX has been an industrial company with two key activities:

  • Silicone rubber compounding and manufacturing for high-temperature applications, mostly for the spin casting industry. Also supplying casting equipment and foundry accessories.
  • Surface treatment of metal parts, delivering turn-key installations for mechanical post-processing equipment such as vibratory machines and shot blasting or sandblasting.

The silicone rubber mold holds a crucial role in the SiOCAST process, serving as the foundation for our innovative injection molding technology. It plays a vital role in ensuring the precision and quality of the final product.

The silicone rubber mold is highly durable and flexible, allowing it to withstand the high temperatures and pressures involved in the injection molding process. Its exceptional thermal and mechanical resistance properties make it the perfect material for creating molds that can withstand repeated use, resulting in consistent and accurate production.

By utilizing silicone rubber molds, SiOCAST offers numerous advantages. The flexibility of the molds enables the production of complex shapes and intricate details, allowing for the creation of high-quality parts and components. The durability of the molds ensures longevity, enabling the manufacturing of large quantities of parts without sacrificing quality or efficiency.

Moreover, the silicone rubber mold offers excellent mold release properties, allowing for easy demolding and reducing the risk of damage to the final product. This contributes to a smoother and more efficient manufacturing process, saving both time and resources.

In summary, the silicone rubber mold is a critical component of SiOCAST's injection molding technology. Its durability, flexibility, and exceptional properties make it an ideal choice for achieving precise, high-quality results in the manufacturing process. SiOCAST's commitment to utilizing silicone rubber molds showcases our dedication to providing our customers with the best possible solutions for their manufacturing needs.
