Individual protective elements by Pöppelmann KAPSTO®.

Fast, safe and efficient: upon request, we develop and produce individual caps and plugs.

We have been one of the leading specialists for plastic protective elements for over 60 years. Thanks to our standard range of over 3,000 versions, and the special range which includes a further 2,000 protective solutions, we can offer you suitable solutions for numerous applications in a wide variety of industries. But what if you do not find what you are looking for either in our standard or special range? Are you looking for a protective element for your individual application, such as the safe protection of sensitive components, but you can't seem to find it anywhere?

We do it. Individually.

Even if you need a specially-made custom product, we are the right partner for you. That's because we can develop it and manufacture it quickly and efficiently. We start by asking you what special requirements the protective element must meet: Which task should the protective solution fulfill? Should it have a handle or a thread? What properties should the material have? Once all parameters have been clarified, we move to the development phase. For exact testing, we would be pleased to provide you design, functional and installation samples, which we produce by means of rapid tooling and rapid prototyping. We then start production.

Experience shows that the implementation is less expensive than expected. Usually there is no need to design new moulds. In most cases, it is sufficient to create special mould inserts for existing main moulds. If you wish, we would also gladly take on further tasks involved in the project: from support, development and mould making in Pöppelmann's WTZ to efficient series production. This not only saves you a lot of time, but also additional, cost-intensive interfaces.

Even less time for individual protective elements – with FastLane.

Through our experience, we know that time is one of the key success factors on the market. Even on this point, we provide you with optimum support: if you need a product urgently, we can now develop and manufacture your individual custom-made products in less time, thanks to our optional FastLane range of services. After a successful feasibility check you will receive your individual custom-made parts within just one month.
