Design

…from your component idea to the finished injection mould. Thanks to the many years of experience of our employees in design, we are not only able to assist you with the plastic-compatible article construction but can also create your tool completely in 3D. As CAD software, we use the current versions of Cimatron and Catia. For the CAM area, we use WorkNC, and we create the filling simulations with Moldflow. Through this “all-inclusive package”, we can recognise the challenges of the production in advance and make the appropriate changes in coordination with you.



CAD

At our site, we have many years of experience in tool design. We are able to make injection moulding tools for all standard injection moulding processes (1K-compact injection moulding, multi-component injection moulding, injection compression moulding tools, GID, GGD, tandem and stack moulds). We are equipped to technically assess and to carry out changes on your components even years after the moulding tools were initially designed.

The benefits:

  • Complete tool design in 3D
  • Many years of experience in designing moulding tools
  • Change management possible even years after the initial designs

CAM

The CAM department generates milling programmes for our CNC milling machines. Due to many years of experience and continuous training in the software we use, our technicians are equipped to find effective solutions for even the most difficult of challenges. Even more colleagues from the CNC milling department are on hand to support the team: experts in the software who take care of machine programming.
As a CNC milling machine is only as good as the programme used to operate it, we consider sound and efficient programming to be particularly important. As we have the option of providing 5-axis machining at out machine plant we are therefore able to programme the machines accordingly.

Moldflow

Using Moldflow analyses, we are able to find the optimal injection point for your products. The anticipated warpage for each component on the basis of the chosen injection point can be calculated and optimised where necessary using specialised measures. We can simulate the influence of a change in dimensions in advance and are therefore able to optimise the design. The influence of different materials used can also be represented in the analysis. Due to the high computing power required, a high-end computer is used for this purpose.

The benefits:

  • Optimal identification of the injection point
  • Assessment of possible deviations in the dimensions caused by warping
  • Analyses and consulting to optimise the results of the injection moulding process

Data Transfer

There are several possible methods for data transfer: The standard process is data transfer via our Coko data management portal (FTP server).
To account for matters of security, we use the same OFTP2 process certified by the German Automotive Association (VDA) / Odette. We would be happy to create an account for you on our FTP server. We will assign you a user profile and then send you your account password.

For Odette connections, we kindly request that you send us your OFTP2 credentials.

We use all standard interfaces and work with the following CAD systems:

Catia V5-6, Siemens NX10 (Unigraphics) and Cimatron E12

→ For these systems, feel free to send us your data in native format.

For CAM programming, we use the following programmes:

Worknc G3 V24 and Peps Wire V5

We also use Autodesk Moldflow 2016 Insight.

Technical Consulting

A technical advisor for all of you future projects will be selected for you from our technology department. This means you will have a point of contact with many years of experience in tool manufacture who is ready to help you overcome any technical challenges you may face. Your point of contact not only checks your data and outlines in preparation for plastics manufacture but is also responsible for creating the initial concepts for the tool. These are then calculated at our site or at the site of one of our longstanding partners in Germany, Portugal or the Far East. We therefore guarantee that we are always able to offer you the best possible price for the tools you have ordered. Once the order has been placed, the point of contact notifies the engineer and advises him throughout the tool manufacturing process. Together with the project manager he is the middleman between you, our tool suppliers and our production plant whose job it is to ensure effective communication of issues and queries.
