ELLINGTON, Conn.—Dymotek Corp. has forged a special niche for itself by helping customers evaluate whether to use liquid silicone rubber and thermoplastics.
"What's unique with Dymotek is the ability to look at a product in development and give input whether it should be thought of as a silicone or thermoplastic part—we can do both," said Victor Morando, chief technology officer at Dymotek .
The company operates out of two facilities—its main plant is a 35,000-square-foot facility in Ellington and a second operation is 48,000 square feet in Somers, Conn., which is about 10 minutes away. Both are set up similarly with both LSR and thermoplastics operations. Each also has a full quality control lab.
Dymotek currently runs nine machines that are set up for LSR. They range in size up to 220 tons of compression force. Six of the machines are two-shot machines and can make parts using both silicone and thermoplastics.
The company has 28 injection molding presses in all, with plans to add three more in 2017.
