Sil-Pro Introduces New Service Called “Jet Tooling”, Providing Molds and Functional Silicone or Thermoplastic Parts in 3-5 Days

Sil-Pro announces new capability to produce tooling and functional prototype silicone or thermoplastic parts within 3 to 5 days.

Delano, Minnesota: Sil-Pro announces new capability to produce tooling and functional prototype silicone or thermoplastic parts within 3 to 5 days. This new capability is of great benefit for the medical device community and has been thoroughly tested by Sil-Pro for the last year.

“With time-to-market pressures, our current medical customer base asked for expedited services to go from print to reliable prototype parts extremely fast,” stated Brian Higgins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Sil-Pro. With Sil-Pro’s recent expansion of 25,000 square feet of dedicated tool shop, plus capital investment into a 5-axis high speed machining cell with robot tending for lights out 24/7 production, Sil-Pro has the high speed capabilities.

Sil-Pro adds additional estimating and tooling staff to streamline all internal processes to support the 3-5 day turn around service. Now an engineer can emailor upload a Solid Model and Sil-Pro expedites all necessary evaluation, estimating, and final quotation for approval. Once the customer approves the quotation, tool building begins and can be completed within 2 days, and molded prototype parts in 2-3 days.
