Injection moulding: A core technology for demanding applications

Thanks to extensive know-how built up over many years and in-depth production capabilities in injection moulding, SFS intec can offer you solutions from idea to mass production; enabling you to maintain your competitive advantage.

Made-to-measure solutions for wide ranging application areas

It would be difficult to imagine a world without the specific properties offered by plastics. Whether it’s in the car, the mobile phone or dishwasher, plastics seem to be today's universal material. They can replace metal and offer the integration of multiple functions in a single component.

Starting with polymer granulate, the component concerned will generally be produced in a single manufacturing operation. The process is ideally suited to medium-to-large series manufacture; i.e. annual quantities from 20.000 parts.

Potential benefits

Achieving economical, optimum product designs is the central issue. Using plastics offers so many advantages such as:

  • enormous geometrical design freedom
  • weight reduction
  • ready-to-fit components
  • numerous different, application-specific material properties
  • excellent corrosion and chemical resistance
  • combination capability (assemblies)
  • added value finishing ([printing and painting)

Wide-ranging manufacturing options

Plastic injection moulding offers the potential to create numerous further technical component solutions:

  • metal-to-plastic combinations
  • fine network structures for loudspeakers and filters
  • miniature components measuring < 1 mm and weighing < 0.02 g (two-hundredths of a gram)
  • Carda products consisting of over-moulded cords and wires
  • two-component parts - specially hard and soft plastics
