Rogan Adds M.R. Mold Cold Deck System to its Vertical LSR Molding Machine
Northbrook, IL, May 2014 - Rogan Corporation, known for its true two-shot, liquid silicone rubber, and insert molding, has purchased and added a new cold deck system to its vertical Sodick Plustech Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding machine.

The result is a reduction in part costs, material savings, reduced cycle times, and increased equipment utilization. In addition, Rogan customers also experience a significant tooling savings benefit.
“Given the complexity of the LSR parts that we produce,” states Jim Ritzema, Rogan’s Director of Operations, “customers can realize tooling savings of between $25,000 - $
