Tools for glass encapsulation
In addition to polyurethane (PU) encapsulation, the encapsulation with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) or other materials also lends itself to joining glass and plastics in components. While polyurethane (PU) is the preferred choice for large convex glass components such as automotive windscreens and rear windows and small-batch components, encapsulation with plastic is frequently the most economically efficient solution for small glass components such as side and quarter windows in cars.
Injection molding – we produce prototypes and small batches
Our designers already support you as early as in the component development phase in order to achieve an optimum design of your injection mold and thus the most economically efficient production of your components. Thanks to this approach, cost can be cut and technical implementation issues can be resolved early on. Following that, we will be pleased to produce prototype molds made of aluminium and, later on, the series-production molds made of tool steel. To this end, our milling department is equipped with 3-axis and 5-axis milling machines with which we process work pieces sized up to 3,800 mm x 2,320 mm x 1,100 mm. We produce prototypes and small batches of your component on our injection molding machine that has been specifically configured for the encapsulation of panes. We will present the results to you in our pilot plant, where we will be pleased to welcome you for the purposes of sample molding.
