Solution-oriented assistance

Consulting

In close cooperation with our specialist engineers, you can discuss your problems relating to plastics / plastics technology and jointly develop solution concepts. We support you on-site and also online to analyze your processes and derive target-oriented action plans. Our core competencies include topics such as material research, new material development, molded part & tool development as well as suitable manufacturing processes or concrete optimization approaches for existing processes (cycle time, quality, energy, sustainability optimization).

Our tips and advice on troubleshooting are particularly in demand. Due to the increasing complexity of plastic molded parts and processing, error patterns and damage analyses are also becoming more demanding and require our combined knowledge and experience in the areas of processing, mold design and plastic testing. Further questions about suitable joining and bonding methods for your plastic molded parts will also not go unanswered. You can rely on the independent advice of our welding and joining specialists.

Our teams can also advise you on applying for and carrying out subsidized projects. Do not hesitate to contact us if technical and technological issues also involve the implementation of new trend topics in your company. Through our market-oriented research in topics such as recycling, lightweight construction or digitization, we have access to the right partners, know-how and great ambition to transfer these trends into practical application with you.

Process optimization

In the jungle of interactions between the most diverse technical conditions and physical laws, it is not easy to keep track. With a trained eye and the appropriate measuring technology, we can examine your processes in injection molding and polyurethane processing as well as for plastic welding processes step by step, uncover optimization potential in terms of quality, economy and sustainability and avoid wasted costs. Don't be satisfied with your processes running stably! Save your resources and create scope for necessary new acquisitions or the further training of your employees. We would be happy to advise you!

Quality assurance

Benefit from our experience and our knowledge of error prevention and waste minimization. On the one hand, we offer free access to our online error catalogue, with which you can learn about error sources and error patterns, as well as measures to eliminate and avoid them. On the other hand, we also implement individual error and damage analyses, which, by clarifying the causes, are a prerequisite for error or damage prevention and contribute to improving product quality. Another proactive approach to preventing quality defects in the production and process phase is regular testing of the plastics processing machines used. The necessary measures to ensure constantly running machine technology can be found in the following article.

Intelligent solutions for plastics processing

Digitization & Data Science

In the course of progressive digitization, manufacturing companies are increasingly offered opportunities to record and process information along the entire process chain. But especially for small and medium-sized companies, the question often arises: How much effort does this transformation involve and is it really worth going down this path in the end? We advise you on current developments in the industry and the opportunities that digitization and AI offer your company.
