When customers approach us with specific requirements for plastic protective caps or plugs, at Pöppelmann KAPSTO® we do our best to provide them with a solution. The GPN 212 pipe end caps are a recent example of our successful development work. Following a customer request, KAPSTO® application engineers have developed this new standard series specifically for 6 and 8 mm fuel pipes. The cap protects the pipes from contamination during transport and shields the coating of the ball bushing at the end of the pipe. Since the flanging is not standardised, the GPN 212 must also be able to overcome different spherical geometries. Thanks to the highly flexible plastic (TPE), the cap adapts to the individual contour of each ball bushing perfectly.
Pöppelmann KAPSTO® is the right development partner, even when it comes to individual custom-made products. Thanks to more than 50 years of experience and a concept of in-house master moulds, the family business from Lohne is able to develop and produce them cost-effectively. Usually there is no need to build new moulds from scratch – in most cases it is sufficient to produce special mould inserts for readily available moulds. Moreover, we also take over all those numerous little jobs which a project involves: from support to development (including Rapid Prototyping) right through to mould-making and efficient serial production. This allows our customers not only to save a lot of time but also additional costly interfaces - such as external development agents and mould constructors.
