The injection moulds specialist is setting new standards in the processing of high-temperature materials


It has always been the aspiration of ifw mould tec GmbH to shape and improve the technological standards of the future. "We are convinced that the demanding requirements of the rapidly developing market can only be met through innovation," explains Ing. Josef Nahringbauer, Managing Director of ifw mould tec, which acts as an international partner for the fitting, packaging, automotive and furniture industries from its base in Micheldorf, Upper Austria.

Now the world's leading supplier in the production of high-quality injection moulds can announce new advancements: "We have succeeded in fundamentally refining our existing mould system for high-temperature materials," says Nahringbauer.

Quality and durability further increased

Both the quality and durability for which ifw is renowned have been improved even further with the new, fourth generation. The new system offers numerous benefits, including an extremely short mould preheating time and consequently additional energy savings. The optimised temperature control has also improved the efficiency of the process. Perfect cycle times, rapid tool changes, swift set-up times and maximum user-friendliness – thanks to integrated tempering media routing – speak likewise for product innovation. Furthermore, the mould system from ifw mould tec not only guarantees increased component durability but also enhanced flexibility in the production of articles from high-temperature materials. For example, fitting sizes from Ø 16 to 32 mm can be implemented in one master mould concept.
