Compact injection molding with only one component (1C) is a technology for the production of functional plastic parts with precise dimensions in a wide variety of products. Multi-component injection molding (e.g. 2C for two components) can be used to produce plastic parts from different plastics (e.g. hard-soft compounds and in different colors) cost-effectively with just one injection molding machine. The advantage is that there is no need for additional assembly.
Precision injection molding makes it possible to manufacture products in different sizes and with varying accuracy.
Silicones are high-quality materials that acquire their specific properties in a special manufacturing process. Processing takes place on injection molding machines designed for this purpose with a cool cylinder module and hot mold.
The MuCell® technology for injection molding of microcellular foam from thermoplastics offers unique cost saving potentials compared to conventional injection molding. The combination of lower density and cycle time reduction often results in cycle, material and weight savings of over 15%. In terms of quality, MuCell® parts are distinguished by higher dimensional stability than conventionally manufactured parts and, at the same time, eliminate sink marks.
In chemical foaming, a blowing agent is added to the plastic. This chemical additive decomposes by releasing a gas during plastification of the plastic as the temperature rises. Here, too, the gas dissolves while maintaining a minimum pressure in the melt.
