Impossible Silicone Complex Design
- Customer needed to produce 100 translucent, durable, yet pliable 1.5-inch tubes with multiple grooved bends and a 1.5 mm hollow core for use in one of its ventilation products
- Traditional method required significant tooling at higher cost.
The tube printed with LOCTITE 3D 5010 Elastomeric material replaced 3 RTV silicone parts assembly.
- Complex geometry customization from 3 to 1 printed part
- 10x cost reduction per part
- 9X lead time reduction
