Production Technologies: Plastic Injection Molding

High Quality Insulating and Plastic Bodies
for the Automotive Industry

Plastic Injection Molding for the Manufacture of Insulator Materials and Plastic Parts for Connectors in the Automotive Industry

We are specialized in the production of innovative connectors made from metal and plastic. We use a variety of injection molding machines with different levels of automation to manufacture the insulator materials and plastic parts required, depending on what requirements the product imposes on the processes. Our insulator materials and plastic parts can already be found in a large number of control units in the automotive industry, such as in airbag, seat or transmission controls. As part of this, we have specialized in the production of plastics using thermoplastics such as PBT, LCP, PA, PPS, or PC. Our machine park is home to more than 30 injection molding machines, which use clamping forces ranging from 600 to 2,000 kN. Several hundred metric tons of granulate are processed in total each year. We offer a range of insulator materials with a shot weight of 0.3 g to 170 g – flexibly adaptable to your requirements and ideas, of course.
Our production process is highly automated for the most part.

This is what you can rely on with ept

Early Error Prevention

Icon Fruehzeitige Fehlervermeidung white frei
We work using an FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) to ensure defects are prevented from an early stage – no matter whether in feasibility analysis, production of operating equipment, or prototyping.

Outstanding Quality

Icon Ausgezeichnete Qualitaet white frei
We are committed to the zero-defect target as specified by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF).
We have the lowest error rate in the entire market. We also guarantee you the lowest contingency risk and the avoidance of expensive line stoppages, combined with a high on-time delivery rate. We have been able to improve the quality of our connectors ourselves and can assure you of optimum quality monitoring, thanks to the high level of vertical integration in our plants. This guarantee is backed up by a functioning quality and environmental management system that is ISO-9001, ISO-14001, and IATF 16949 certified.

Secure Processes

Icon Sichere Prozesse white frei
Our continuous project management (APQP) for product and quality planning is anchored throughout the entire product creation process. We pay the utmost attention to risk minimization and quality right from the beginning of the cooperation, while taking into account your specifications and our experience.

We are ept and that is what we stand for
