Expert for industrial processes & products, research & development
Expert Profile


The development of plastic parts includes all steps from the idea to the finished part. Tool-specific concerns must be taken into account, as well as material properties and load profiles. Methods such as CAD, FEM, Mold Flow, support the development and sometimes save time-consuming trials to test the necessary product requirements. Our experts will advise you.

Next to the material, the tool for the production of plastic parts is the most important part for an optimal product. In the tool design, the quality of the parts that can be achieved later is also determined with the specification of steels, dimensions and machining processes. We advise you on design and construction.

Injection Moulding

Injection moulding of thermoplastics has revolutionised the production of mass-produced articles. The fast cycle times, the great design possibilities and the achievable precision enable the cost-effective production of parts for almost all areas of application. The quality and capability of the process depends heavily on the injection moulding machine, mould and material.

Plastics Welding

Welding is the method for joining individual plastic parts when individual parts are to be connected to each other reliably and permanently. In practical application, the heating element, vibration and ultrasonic welding processes are usually used as series welding processes, as well as laser welding for special applications. We advise you.
