The Application Engineering Process

An Overview of Our Application Support in Plastic Injection Molding

We do not look at challenges individually, but in the overall process. We support your projects from design to series product. The goal: an efficient, stable and cost-effective production solution.

  1. Evaluate part and requirements

  2. Compare concepts and define injection molding processes

  3. Select machine series and design injection molding machine

  4. Optimally coordinate machine & peripherals

  5. Run, analyze and optimize production process

  6. Identify and explore energy-saving potentials

  7. Use digital products for process optimization

Result:

  • More stable injection molding processes

  • Shorter cycle times

  • Improved part quality
