Sil-Pro is a full-service, medical device contract manufacturer with design, prototype and complete in-house moldmaking capabilities. They have recently announced a new capability to produce tooling and functional prototype silicone or thermoplastic parts within 3 to 5 days: Jet Tooling.

According to Brian Higgins, VP of Sales and Marketing at Sil-Pro, time-to-market pressures from their  current medical customer base has pushed the company to offer expedited services that go from print to reliable prototype parts extremely fast.

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, has given Sil-Pro the the high-speed capabilities it needs for this new offering in expedited moldmaking services.

Sil-Pro has added additional estimating and tooling staff to streamline all internal processes to support the 3-5 day turn around service. Now an engineer can email or 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. 

According to Sil-Pro, Jet Tooling services includes the following benefits: in-house inventory of both pre-hard and hardened stainless steel inserts; wider selection of materials versus other prototype services; can become bridge type tooling to pre-production and smaller production runs; saves money in long run and enhances Design for Manufacturability.
