Food & Drink

The food & drink industry requires specific processes, sanitary and hygiene standards. Thus, products used during the food manufacturing process need to respect specific requirements.

Silicones are incontestably ideal materials to meet the needs of the food industry.

Silicone can comply with the following food and drink industry norms

• FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 - ROHS – REACH – CE1935-2004

Some implementations :

• Vapour bath seals, autoclave seals

• Gates gaskets, tank seals...

• Oven seals, tub gaskets, cooking seals...

STERNE discloses new additive manufacturing technology by depositing silicone filaments

STERNE has developed a new additive manufacturing technology by depositing filaments using a 100% UV cured silicone, to provide its customers with silicone prototypes closest to the final piece.

Decision-making tool and functional prototyping

Due to a changing market and an evolution in customers demand, STERNE has developed this silicone additive manufacturing technology as a decision tool, for example upstream from a mold purchasing.

So far, prototyping was carried out with a 3D plastic printer. "Many customers were wondering how the final piece will look like, but plastic prototype doesn’t reveal the mechanical properties of silicone" says Céline Laget, STERNE General Manager.

Recovering 100% of strength and elongation properties of the injected final product, pieces printed with this new technology allow their customers to have a clear idea of the final product. A technology developed in view to rapid prototyping and to reassure their customers, more than in purpose of mass-production.

A technology with outstanding performance

"With a minimum printing layer of 0.25mm, we can manufacture items of extreme precision and great geometrical complexity", explains Anthony Pellafol, Materials Engineer at STERNE.

After a year and a half of research and development in its lab, and with the help of Momentive Performance Material and their UV technology, STERNE will present its innovation on its stand at the K2016*, unmissable exhibition in the plastic field.

PRINTER PROPERTIES
● Maximum print volume, in mm: 250 x 200 x 100 (l x w x h)
● Minimum printing layer : 0,25mm
● Hardness from 30 to 60 Shores A
● Colorations : translucent (all translucent colors), opaque (red, green , yellow, black ...), phosphorescent

With an experience of more than 15 years in the silicone industry, the company STERNE is specialized in manufacturing products made of silicone, elastomers and rubbers. With a constant growth, and unique know-hows, STERNE is well-known in the industrial and medical fields. Whether High Consistency Silicone Rubber (HCR) or Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), STERNE masters a large range of manufacturing process such as extrusion, molding, making, over-molding & other specialties.

For the K 2013 event, STERNE will be pleased to welcome you on its stand in order to present you one of its last developments: Transparent silicone. As clear as glass, this transparent silicone can be used in various processes and products, without the main weakness of glass: breaking.

Unusual: silicone as transparent as glass !

Silicone glasses have been designed and manufactured by STERNE, to show the likeness between transparent silicone and glass. Thus, do not hesitate to visit STERNE booth. Have a break & a ‘silicone’ drink , and have a chance to win one of our sets of 6 silicone glasses. Each day, STERNE will organize one random draw to find our lucky man!
