Injection Molding

Integration of tailored blanks or local reinforcements


Using thermoplastic tapes or tailored blanks as local reinforcements enables efficient material usage and improved properties of injection molded parts: As local reinforcements, tapes allow for increased stiffness and strength, cost savings, higher surface hardness or enhanced optics. Injection molders in particular can achieve great advantages from tapes.


+ Improving stiffness and strength of injection molding parts by low material usage
+ Cost and weight savings with increasing performance
+ Individual load introduction by flexible orientation of the tapes
