Plastic Injection Moulding

Plastic Injection Moulding

Convince yourself of by our technological diversity and modern infrastructure.

We have a broad portfolio of injection moulding machines. The small injection moulding machine range has a clamping force of 20 to - 50 tons. This area represents approx. 30% of the machine park. Another clamping range is between 50 and 100 tons, which represents 25% of the machine park, as does the medium clamping range between 100 and 200 tons. The high clamping range is represented by machines with a clamping force of 200 to 1,150 tons. 20% of the machines are included here.

Tandem production

Compared to a conventional injection mould, a tandem mould is equipped with two sections with multiple cavities. However, the injection moulding machine itself does not have any special features in the production process. It controls the tandem process cycle, in which one cavity is injected while the other cavity cools down and is then ejected. The advantage of the tandem tool is obvious: This technology eliminates machine idle times, as the cooling time of one cavity is used to inject the other cavity.

2K Technology

This refers to the injection moulding of multi-component parts with high structural strength and high quality. The multi-component injection moulding process makes it possible to perfectly combine different materials and their properties. The injection moulded part can thus be produced in a single work step using the injection moulding machines and tools designed for this purpose. This includes both the transfer process and the rotary table technology, which are currently used on three fully automated 2K injection moulding systems.

Production with inserts

Hybrid solutions are also frequently used in production. Injection moulding of inserts enables the combination of different materials, whereby higher material qualities of metal or other materials are combined with the low production costs of plastic components. This technology is used particularly frequently when a hybrid part needs to perform several functions.

Special infrastructure

Highly wear-resistant injection moulding units are installed on every injection moulding machine so that recycled, regrinded or virgin material can be used with all common fillers. Direct recycling of sprues using grinders on the machines generates less production waste. The material-friendly feeding of the injection moulding machines using specially produced conveyor chains is a more efficient process than vacuum-based conveyor technology. The use of energy-efficient dryers is maintained at the cutting edge of technology at all times. Article extraction via linear handling or 5-axis robots is used in production.
