Development of plastic components:
Bock Kunststofftechnik engineering offers the entire spectrum from development to the finished product, all in a short space of time, bringing new packaging products to market on time, and at a convincing quality-price ratio.
Many things need to be taken into consideration in the development of injection moulded components, metal-plastic combinations and plastic assemblies.
During cooling, plastic undergoes a certain material loss and shrinks. This shrinkage must be allowed for when making injection mouiding tools. And each plastic has a different rate of shrinkage. This is where long years of experience are important as the manufacturers of granules often only give approximate shrinkage values. Bock plastics engineering has this accumulated experience on the shrinkage rates of plastics.
Reinforced and filled plastics do not only have just one rate of shrinkage, reinforcements and fillers lead to cross and longitudonal shrinkage in plastic parts. This makes it is even more important to use the accumulated knowledge of Bock plastis engineering in reinforced plastics.
The positioning of the injection point is often decisive for the quality of a plastic component.
The injection moulding of plastic components automatically leads to connecting seams when the flow of the liquid masses joins. By well positioned injection points such connection seams can be concealed or moved to positions which are of secondary importance for the stability or the visual evaluation. Customers benefit from the Bock experience.
If we are unsure, or on customer demand, we perform simulations on distortion behaviour, flow behaviour and the filling behaviour of the parts.
You can either provide us with technical drawings of your product or create these together with our design department. We work with state-of-the-art CAD systems: such as SolidWorks. Here, we can read and process all common file formats such as Step, VDA and STL, DXF, IGES etc.
If you want to send the data encrypted, this does not present a problem as we use the Odette programme according to VDA 4914/2 in our company.
