SIMTEC announces LSR manufacturing program for global medical device company


SIMTEC Silicone Parts a custom manufacturer of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) parts and high-precision LSR 2-Shot components has announced a new production partnership with a global healthcare leader. SIMTEC will begin production in 2014 on a high precision LSR component program for a non-invasive drug delivery system.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this program” said Enrique Camacho President of SIMTEC Silicone Parts. “With our controlled environment and ISO 13485 certification we are poised to expand further into sophisticated medical device programs for LSR and 2-shot components.”

Production is scheduled to begin in 2014 with annual volumes estimated to reach 80 million parts per year. Multiple production units are planned for this program and a custom medical grade LSR will be produced specifically for this application.

SIMTEC relocated to a new operation in 2013 and more than quadrupled their previous footprint. “Our new 80000 square foot operation is one of the most modern of its kind in the world” continued Enrique Camacho. “We now retain the infrastructure necessary to support sizable growth while at the same time enabling fast time to market for new programs.”
