REP Corp. has released an injection molding machine that can run liquid silicone rubber, viscous silicone pegs and strip rubber. The LSR press features a 25-ounce shot capacity, 175-ton clamp force and 16.93-inch by 20.08-inch platens. The silicone shot can be delivered to the mold cavity at about one-third the pressure required for conventional elastomers, REP said. Press molds can be interchanged and the machine´s injection nozzle can be furnished with or without cold runner block valve adaptations.
