Back-injection and
plastic hybrid composites

In our in-house plastic injection-moulding production, we produce customised components for individual or subassembly production as well as fan wheels for the blower technology applications. We also use back-injection technology to combine metals and metal foils with different plastics and to integrate specific sensors or lighting elements.
This results in sealed and durable connections without component distortion and without the formation of gaps.

Services

We form strong connections.

Back-injection of metal and metal foils

We back-inject metals and metal foils with specific plastics and integrate electronics, lighting elements and/or sensors as desired. Even the anodising of previously back-moulded components is possible. The optimal design of our tools avoids distortion caused by shrinkage and different linear expansions.
Products:

  • Decorative and functional elements with injected support elements
  • Door sill trims in the automotive sector



Perforated surfaces that enable the metal to communicate through integrated light controls or sensor technology.
When switched off, both the elements and the perforated surface are invisible. Integrated effects such as illuminated icons, logos, symbols or lettering, only become visible in the ‘on’ mode.


Details on smart surfaces


We anodise the surfaces of previously back-moulded metal components in the highest optical and haptic quality, in accordance with your design concepts. To best support you, we have our own anodising plant complete with the following finishing processes:

  • Organic or electrolytic anodisation
  • Sub-anodising
  • Partial / selective anodising
  • Anodising of already back-moulded components

In addition, various forms of pre- and post-treatment are possible, for example brushing, grinding, blasting, polishing, special pickling and lasering.


Anodising details


Equipment in our injection moulding department:

  • Injection moulding machines with up to 250 t clamping force
  • Presses with up to 500 t pressing force
  • Servo eccentric presses for complex forming operations
  • Machinery for turning and milling tasks
  • Plant for welding and bonding plastic components

We design and manufacture the composite tools ourselves.

  • Complex injection moulding tools based on Moldflow analyses and numerical simulation methods
  • Sheet metal tools for bending, punching and deep drawing of visible components in form and design
  • Progressive composite tools and jigs

Joining and bonding technologies

We join components using a wide variety of methods. In bonding, we use liquid adhesives, adhesive tapes and also adhesive die-cuts, which we apply manually or robotically. Optionally, different types of pre-treatment are possible, including plasma, primer, scarfing or pyrosil as well as different rapid curing methods (UV light, infrared, heat radiation).

  • 1C adhesives with manual and robot-assisted application
  • 2C adhesives in robot systems with high-end dispensing technology
  • Adhesive tapes with manual or robot-assisted application
  • Punched adhesive substrates with special systems for perfect positioning and pressing

Development and series production of (OEM) appliances

In accordance with the individual requirements of our customers, we develop and manufacture complete products in series as an ODM and OEM device manufacturer and also manage the processes of certification, packaging design and logistics.


Details


Assemblies

Assemblies combine individual components, which have different shapes and are made from different materials. These are permanently joined together using appropriate technologies such as laser welding or bonding. Depending on the components and the required joint, this is done manually or using robot-assisted semi- or fully-automatic systems in our plants.


Details


Kinematics

Our pull-out rails and mechanical and electromechanical hinges bring movement to numerous application areas, for example for the convenient sensor-controlled opening and closing of (oven) doors or refrigerators.

      Order volumes

      Please take into account that our production is geared towards medium to large series production. We are therefore unable to process requests for very small quantities for economic reasons.

      Requests from private individuals

      We ask for your understanding that we cannot consider requests from private individuals of any kind.
