Verifying a Consistent Silicone Process…

I was asked this question the other day…

Quality Manager
What is a good way to ensure a silicone molding process is consistent?

My Response
One good way to check the consistency of the process is to routinely measure the part weight. A consistent part weight indicates the same amount of material is injected and packed each cycle. This wont necessary tell you what is wrong or has changed, but will be a good indicator of process shift.
