MIRAMAR, Fla.—Simtec Silicone Parts L.L.C. has entered into a long-term pact with a global health care product manufacturer to produce a key component to be used in high precision drug delivery systems.
A custom maker of liquid silicone rubber parts and high precision LSR 2-shot components, Simtec will begin production this year on the product. Annual volumes were estimated by the firm at about 80 million parts annually.
The customer—new to the Simtec fold—and type of part to be produced were not disclosed because of a confidentiality agreement. Financial details were not released.
Multiple production units will be used to manufacture the component, and a custom, medical grade LSR will be produced specifically for the application.
“With our controlled environment and ISO 13485 certification, we are poised to expand further into sophisticated medical device programs for LSR and two-shot components,” according to Simtec President Enrique Camacho.
