Challenges successfully tackled
Engineering such a complex mould, as well as the manufacture of parts with fine and small contours, proved to be demanding. Time pressure resulting from tight project planning was an additional incentive. Prior to mass production, the team had overcome all major and minor challenges.
Since this time, the process is stable and large production runs have been ensured. Further activities in two-component injection moulding are still being developed at toolcraft, including parts from the automotive sector as well.
