Injection moulding technology

Innovative moulded parts made from plastic – With comprehensive production expertise, many years of know-how and state-of-the-art machines, SFS is one of the leading international providers in the area of injection moulding technology. Thanks to innovative processes and task-specifically selected plastics we are in a position to manufacture almost any shape in the required quality. This means that, in terms of metallic materials, it is not only significant weight that can be saved, but also costs – without compromises in terms of longevity and functionality.

Advantages

Great design freedom

The technology of injection moulding allows almost unlimited variety in shapes – even intricate grid structures can be realised with high precision.

High quantity output

Thanks to the long service life of the tools, significant potential benefits are realised in large series.

Low weight

There are often significant weight savings compared to other materials.

Pre-finished components

Our injection-moulded parts are directly usable – without further follow-up treatment.

Varied material properties

Depending on the plastic and geometry, various material properties can be manufactured – from extremely hard and rigid to highly flexible to velvety smooth.

Innovative multi-component parts

Even two-component parts, particularly hard/soft or metal/plastic combinations as well as overmoulded Carda products are possible.

Process

During the injection moulding process the respective plastic is first liquefied as a granulate and then spray under pressure in an injection mould tool. Here the plastic returns to a solid state by cooling or a cross-linking reaction and can then be removed as a finished part. Plastic injection-moulded parts by SFS can be produced in the most varied of shapes and properties and are therefore suitable for use in a variety of areas such as vehicles, mobile phones or dishwashers.
