Form-in-place is an automated system for dispensing conductive or non-conductive silicone gaskets onto metal or plastic substrates.
Size of the gasket is small. The average diameter is 0.6 – 1,2 mm, which is especially suitable for sealing small articles. As the material is soft, the required closing force of the gaskets is small and they can be dispensed onto almost all materials and coatings used in the electronics industry. The most common gasket solutions are dispensing of a gasket into a structure’s groove or on a flange.
This technology suits well for sealing cases with single and multiple chambers. The cases can be opened several times without damaging the gasket.
