New systems enhance Sil-Pro's extrusion offerings to the medical device industry.

Sil-Pro Silicone Professionals (Delano MN) has added systems to its plant in order to provide expanded extrusion capabilities. With the the new systems, the ISO 9001:2000-certified company can offer in-line, close-tolerance cutting of silicone tubing directly from the extrusion machine. Single-lumen, multilumen, solid-rope, and rod silicone tubing can be provided with inner and outer diameters ranging from 0.02 to 1.0 in. In addition to extruding silicone tubing, the company can overmold onto silicone tubes, bond singular tubular parts to plastic and metal components using medical-grade adhesives, and pad-print identification marks onto silicone tubing for positioning or lot traceability. Tube color options include clear, translucent, opaque, and colored versions."Our new capabilities will give customers a boost with accelerated time-to-market projects and provide many cost-effective benefits," says Brian Higgins, Sil-Pro vice president of sales and marketing. "We continue to expand our facilities with new technology to provide medical device companies with the quality and turnaround time they require."
