For many years, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has lead the way as a technology leader in the automotive industry. Whether you are producing components with low part weight, thin wall thicknesses, high mechanical strength or visually sophisticated decorative surfaces, we know your requirements. Our library of tailor-made reference projects cover the entire automobile world, starting with lighting systems and precision optics, through vehicle drive systems and engine components to interior and exterior.
The demands for multi-coloured surfaces with flawless haptics and ergonomics, the efficient production of intelligent, multifunctional components and the challenges posed by new materials are raising the bar for injection moulding technology a little higher every day. Our solutions perfect the relationship between machine, automation, robotics and handling for all common processes such as In-Mould-Decoration (IMD), Insert-Moulding (IM), multi-component technology, compression moulding or LSR.
At the end of the day, what counts is the greatest possible efficiency at all levels. Whether standard machine or flexible production cell, our systems adapt perfectly to your requirements and production concepts. Durability, maximum performance, precision and energy efficiency form the foundation on which our machine technology is built, rock solid thanks to the drive technology developed in-house and the robust, solid construction.
Optimized for maximum performance and maximum energy efficiency - this is the motto of our Systec Servo machine, which is designed for molded parts with cycle times of more than 10 seconds. It is perfectly suited for integrated solutions such as IMD surface decoration combined with hot foil stamping of switchable films.
