Injection molding, an important manufacturing process at 1zu1. How does it work? The chosen material is liquified and injected into a mold under pressure. In this way, we as a manufacturer can produce prototypes from original material and serial parts up to 50,000 pieces and more.

Plastic, our material

We have more than 1,000 different plastic materials that we keep in stock. If your plastic component requires a different or special material, you are welcome to provide this material yourself instead of requesting us to procure it. And without any problems whatsoever.

Further benefits:

  • Since 2015, our injection molding department has been fully air-conditioned.
  • Since 2016, we have also been manufacturing with 3 encapsulated systems in the ISO-certified clean room of class 8. Here, special applications are mostly produced as prototypes or as series parts for medical technology, but also for other industries.

Quality, efficiency, cost-effectiveness – a must at 1zu1 also in injection molding.

Applications

Injection molding is also an important step towards a solution for your project: for prototyping and series production. The injection molded parts are produced with aluminum molds manufactured by us.


Your advantages

  • Fast implementation thanks to aluminum tools and sophisticated project management
  • Quotes within 2 working days
  • High-precision components, very close to series requirements
  • Quantities: from single pieces to the realization of pre-series and medium series production
  • High reproducibility
  • Constant and documented process parameters
  • Scale prices depending on the number of pieces
  • Quality assurance: with computed tomography from 2022

“At 1zu1, rapid prototyping means being really fast, even faster, the fastest to find solutions that work. But we take our time on the consulting side.”

Armin Huber enjoys roaring through the Alps on his motorcycle. Just like at 1zu1, it’s a hobby in which speed and technology must come together.

The production of the injection molded parts is carried out exclusively with the aluminum molds manufactured by us. These are manufactured using high-quality, reliable processes that meet the highest demands for precision of plastic parts, shape, material and surface structures.

Our Boy, Arburg, Demag and Sumitomo Demag injection-molding machines generate clamping forces ranging from 10 to 160 metric tons.

When the injection-molding machine is in a vertical position, we can insert a wide variety of parts into the mold and overmold them.

The advantages:

  • We can overmold cables.
  • Make plug parts with insert pins.
  • Injection-mold multi-component parts.
