Rejlek at Fakuma 2023
In October, the Rejlek team attended Fakuma 2023, the international trade fair for plastics processing, in Friedrichshafen — the most important trade fair for our company all year. Not only did we have the opportunity to reconnect with long-standing partners, but we also had the chance to engage prospective new customers with the value our company offers and to present the latest developments to an international audience.
As in previous years, it was both a great pleasure and a valuable opportunity to exchange ideas and showcase our extensive range of services and high level of technical expertise at Fakuma 2023. In addition to our key technologies, which enable us to develop intelligent solutions and optimize supply chains in collaboration with our customers, we had a special highlight this time: the introduction of the brand-new Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) technology to our injection molding range. We were excited to present and demonstrate this addition on site for the very first time.
LIQUID SILICONE RUBBER (LSR) AND ITS ADVANTAGES
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) represents an outstanding enhancement to Rejlek’s suite of offerings. This innovative technology stands apart from traditional injection molding with its unique processing requirements and a host of benefits. LSR’s composition includes low-viscosity linear polysiloxanes, along with various fillers and additives. Unlike the cold molds used in thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) injection molding, the LSR process utilizes hot molds. The two-component system is mixed, and the liquid material is injected into the mold, where it is cured with heat.
One of the significant advantages of LSR is its cross-linked structure, granting it enhanced resistance properties. It outperforms in both temperature and chemical resistance compared to thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). These superior qualities of LSR open a new realm of applications and possibilities, especially for product requirements in medical technology and a wide range of other sectors.
Embracing the theme ‘Rejlek Goes LSR – Complete Solutions from a Single Source’, visitors to our booth at Fakuma had the opportunity to personally discover the distinctive features of this new technology and the versatile properties of the material, complemented by an attractive giveaway.
CONCLUSION: A TRADE FAIR VISIT WITH PROMISING FUTURE PROSPECTS
Although the current conditions may present challenges for many, the atmosphere at Fakuma remained decidedly upbeat, and our participation in the trade fair proved to be a rewarding experience. Engaging discussions with peers in the industry and the successful unveiling of our new LSR technology were definite highlights. It was especially gratifying to inform interested visitors in detail and on a personal level about our comprehensive product and service offerings. In conclusion, we are confident in our capabilities and committed to contributing to sustained positive growth.
