Two or more components - Solidtec shows its competence here as well. An intelligent process makes production profitable.
One of our strengths is the production of two- and multi-component injection moulded parts.
With often low quantities, fully automated processes and the necessary equipment are too expensive. Parts made of different components, whether hard/hard or hard/soft, are therefore realised by us using several moulds (one injection mould for each component) and the conversion process.
Another advantage of this approach: The combination of different plastic components and metal inserts is also possible.
A harmonious concept, short processing times and high output quantities - this is how reliably Solidtec's pre- and small series are created.
Quality is evident right from the start. This is particularly important for pre-series and small series in injection moulding. And that's why our designers make sure that the tool inserts are designed to be particularly stable even during the design phase - in this way, far more than 100,000 components can be produced.
In this process we combine the advantages of the modular Solidtec master forming system with the benefits of automation. The result: a particularly cost-effective process for larger quantities. However, the output quantity that is actually possible depends on the plastic used in each individual case.
The production of the serial form is delayed? No worries A parts bottleneck can be quickly compensated for with the help of our moulds.
Automation on principle? Not with us. Sometimes manual production is the better choice.
Overmould different inserts automatically? This is only worthwhile for high quantities. In the prototype stage with small runs, we therefore dispense with complete automation. The inserts are placed in the moulds by hand and then overmoulded - a high-quality and profitable process for smaller quantities.
We also offer high-quality components made of liquid silicone, which hardly differ from serial parts. An injection moulding machine specially optimised for the use of LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) is used for this purpose. We use it to produce component sizes up to about 8 cm diameter and shot weights up to 10 g.
Liquid silicone injection moulding is particularly suitable for the cost-effective and rapid production of small series and offers the following advantages:
- Media resistance
- Temperature resistance
- Good seal resistance
Perfection even on a small scale - thanks to high-tech equipment, this is a matter of course for us.
You need a filigree component on a small scale? You're welcome. Our high-tech machinery consists of a large number of high-precision HSC machining centres. For the smallest components, we sometimes use milling cutters with diameters of up to 0.2 mm - the guarantee that we can also reproduce very small contours with precision. Shot weights of 0.5 g and more are feasible.
In our injection moulding department we process every thermoplastic according to customer requirements, for example
