The essential factor for the technical realisation of each project is the particular moulding tool. Due to the fact that each tool is constructed and manufactured especially for each project they are mostly unique.

There often exists a conflict between the technical structuring and the visual requirement for an individual design. Yet in many cases design and technical producibility can be coordinated. In particular cases certain visual specifications cannot - or at least not completely - be measured.

Because of a variety of projects already realised our construction engineers have wide experiences in this field.

Capitalise on these experiences for your projects and contact us. We’d be glad to support you at all times. This also applies if the manufacturing itself is not realised by us.

Tool/ parts design

Even for Low Pressure Moulding an appropriate tool design depends on a combination of the customer's request,  material and process specifications, considerations concerning production and experience. Basically the principles for Low Pressure Moulding are similar to those of the classcical injection moulding

  • Radii instead of sharp edging
  • Draft angles
  • Mould venting
  • Avoid material accumulation
  • Ejectors, sliders, date stamps, engravings
  • Several cavities possible
  • Bend protection for cable

The major difference contrary to the injection moulding consists of the fact that Low Pressure Moulding does not use classical synthetics but thermoplastic adhesives. These are processed with considerably lower pressures but have a higher adhesion.

Normally aluminium is used as tool material.
It is easier to process, therefore more cost-saving and by the low pressures of Low Pressure Moulding it will not be injured. Besides that the adhesion of the moulding material is less on aluminium. Steel is only used for inserts or tools with peculiar specifications that cannot be fulfilled by aluminium.

Samples and Prototyps

The construction of prototypes is an important component for the realisation of a new project. By means of near-series prototype moulds the engineering data can be checked for successful implementing and be modified if necessary. Also the basic parameters for the serial production can be ascertained.

All prototype moulds constructed by us are in principle close-to-production and in most cases they can be used for serial production or be finished to a serial production mould.
