Mechanical engineering

Specific applications: vending and sorting machines.

Designers are increasingly using plastic and 2K (plastic-plastic) parts in machines and devices. It’s a logical development because of the benefits of plastic in terms of possibilities for function integration, the light weight, freedom of design and cost price.

Where there is a lack of specific knowledge, KIK can make a fundamental contribution to the development path. This applies not only to the production of the sometimes complex geometry of the mould. After all, every application has its own particular requirements, frequently imposed by law. Machine manufacturers and end-users are also raising the bar higher and higher. Matters like food safety or a specified long service life impact directly on the choice of material and the product design. Frequently KIK is able to recommend adjustments in the initial phase, making it possible to achieve the desired result without costly detours.
