Rapid-Tooling System for Production with Injection Moulding
The rapid-tooling system developed by TCKT makes it possible to produce tool bits and preforms made of a compound of synthetic resin and metal powder using injection moulding. Compared to the conventional production with metal, this method has the advantage that no separate machinery is needed to make the tool bits; instead, the parts are moulded in a form in a single production step. In addition, this method considerably shortens production time. This technique is already protected by a utility patent and is proving valuable in practice for a wide variety of plastics including reinforced plastics. It provides great flexibility and cost-effectiveness particularly for small series production in batch sizes of several hundred to a few thousand. Funding scheme: FFG COMET – Produktion der Zukunft.
