2C injection moulding process – sophisticated multifunctional parts.

Whether hard or soft, multicoloured or smoothness-enhanced: Pöppelmann uses two-component injection moulding to join various types of plastic, including plastics with contrasting properties, and to create complex multi-functional parts. Thus, Pöppelmann dominates the entire process chain: from component development and Rapid Prototyping, through in-house mould making, to efficient serial production.

The material properties of two different plastics are joined together in 2C injection moulds. For example, hard and soft or reinforced and smoothness-enhanced plastics can be combined. Furthermore, multicoloured parts can be produced and even the interlocking connection of two non-adhesive plastics is possible. Therefore, a single component can satisfy a multitude of demands with respect to functionality and design.

Added to this are economic and logistical advantages: The component is formed in a production sequence, meaning the cost and effort of assembly and post-processing is done away with. At Pöppelmann all the steps of the process chain – from the development of the 2C part, through mould making, up to production – are brought together in one place. Applying this holistic concept ensures that 2C parts from Pöppelmann are continuously distinguished by being of a high level of quality yet economical at the same time.

The advantages of the 2C injection moulding process at a glance:

  • Multifunctional. Different material combinations are possible.
  • Reliable. Fully automated manufacturing process; some steps with integrated testing station.
  • Economical. One of the manufacturing steps and additional or later assembly steps become obsolete.
  • Permanent. Solidly joined materials.
  • Sophisticated. Suitable also for highly demanding components.
