Our Key Subjects

Injection Moulding

Injection moulding allows more complex designs where the demands are increasing. Lightweight construction, functional integration and process combinations are currently in our focus of research. In addition to process developments, material developments and process analysis, the development of new auxiliary equipment for the machine technology and mould-related improvements, we do take into account. We would be pleased to work with you for sustainable solutions.
