PLASTIC INJECTION MOULDING
In our in-house injection moulding facility we work with 25 cutting-edge injection moulding machines manufactured by Arburg, Demag and KraussMaffei, which have a locking force of 350 to 6,500 kN. Due to rising demand for components, we are increasingly using multi-component technology. All our systems are automated and many are equipped with camera systems to monitor the quality of parts. Over a production area of around 3,500 m², KTB manufactures extremely complex parts using a number of injection moulding machines.

Multi-component Injection Moulding
2 and 3-component injection moulding technology is used to manufacture plastic parts that are then only partially electroplated. The 3-component technology offers particular benefits for illuminated parts.
Certain multi-component injection moulded parts are only coated on one side in electroplating. This makes it possible to integrate light into the parts, facilitating a day/night design.
All our systems are automated and many are equipped with camera systems to monitor the quality of parts.
Automation of parts stations
Compared to the electroplated plastic parts, the injection moulded blanks are sensitive. For this reason, critical blanks are sent straight to packaging in a fully automated process. This increases productivity and reduces the risk of damage to the parts.
In order to ensure that electroplated products can be connected flush with other parts, the coating must in some cases be partially blocked. This is achieved, especially in small volume production, by coating them with a special lacquer. We have therefore developed item-specific process automation in order to achieve the required coating precision as well as the desired process reliability.
