Mould making for injection moulding of plastics and metals

12-08-2022 | Emka | Subs & Systems

EMKA recently announced that they are one of the top three mould makers in Europe – producing 900 moulds a year for plastic injection, e.g. polyamide/glass and Grivery, and zinc and aluminium die casting. This is particularly of interest to UK companies because of the many advantages to having a European tool maker now that re-shoring is a feasible economic choice.

These local advantages incorporate the needs of development, servicing, adjustment, altering to accommodate new features, changing of injected material, repair in service and any correction that may be needed. Naturally, it builds tooling for its own production but also includes well-known industry giants such as Hella, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche and Fischer Sports.

Seventy-five experienced engineers at the company are engaged in developing, designing and CNC programming high-quality tooling for testing on their own machines under full production conditions. Its output includes moulds for plastic injection moulding, zinc and aluminium die-casting, multi-component moulds (2K), moulds for internal gas pressure processes and IML foils. Complex moulds for insert injection moulding are handled, and zinc die casting moulds - hot runner technology is catered for, as is punch deburring. The mould program includes pre-series moulds for all materials and family tools for small quantities, all supported with guaranteed service life.
