One of the many challenges facing a designer of military equipment is finding an ITAR certified company to mold components that precisely comply in method, size, likeness in appearance and color. At SiTECH our engineers can work off of military specification drawings and create ITAR certified rubber military keypad molding components. We match the liquid silicone injection molding color itself to the graphic design specification, as well as match the graphic key symbols on each key. The signs and keypads we use standard universal symbols so that anyone using equipment will be able to quickly and easily find the right button that serves a specific purpose. When the equipment is manufactured, the standards must be met for all components found on design specs, including silicone military keypad molding components.
Another issue is the environment where the devices are actually used. These are not your average machines working in a sterile atmosphere with climate-controlled air conditioning in a quiet office. These are devices brought into hot zones with extreme temperatures. Sand and grit get into everything. There may be extreme humidity of the driest air imaginable. Wind, ice, snow and rain might be factors. Your machines and all of their components must function with perfect accuracy and reliability regardless. You need an ITAR-certified rubber molding manufacturer that can help you create equipment with seals that will keep out the moisture and particles of sand, dirt and dust.
If your machinery needs to be resistant to certain types of chemicals and gases, we can accommodate that as well. Our military silicone rubber molding creates a blanket over the rest of your device. We can follow your design to create a keypad or other components that prevent penetration of chemicals, liquids, particles and other types of dust into the inner workings of your product. As an ITAR-certified rubber molding manufacturer, we can follow custom shapes and surface finishes. One-piece construction is possible on many designs. We also manufacture silicone gasket seals and bumpers to protect the interior of your machinery. When we work on your design, any technical details about temperature, specific types of chemical, gas and liquid exposure will help us to meet your requirements for military silicone rubber molding with the proper barriers. If you’re not sure how all of the parts can fit into one piece, or you need to test the assembly of separate interchangeable parts, we can provide a rapid prototype for you.
SiTECH’s team, with over 75 years of experience in silicone keypad design and molding is committed to providing complete customer satisfaction with the highest quality products in a successful and timely manner. We manufacture all silicone components in-house.
