Flexlink Conveyor Systems


Injection Moulding Technology, with its CX, EX and MX machine ranges, is KraussMaffei’s largest business division. KraussMaffei offers machinery for all standard injection moulding processes and for almost all process variants and new techniques. We have selectively expanded our automation expertise in recent years.

Cleanform: Injection moulding under cleanroom conditions. Krauss-Maffei has a unique range of highly cleanroom suitable solutions.

Decoform: Back injection moulding onto decorative overlayers such as textiles, leathers etc to produce parts with a high-quality finish. Predominantly used in the automotive interior moulding industry

Duroset: Injection moulding with free flowing granular thermoset feedstocks

Polyset: Injection moulding with unsaturated polyester compounds, Dough Moulding Compound etc. KraussMaffei uses proprietary force feeding technologies from Fahr Bucher as well as those developed inhouse.

Bulk Moulding compounds

Injection Moulding Compounder IMC: Krauss-Maffei’s IMC is a system which replaces the injection unit in an IMM with a twin screw compounder. This process opens new doors to processors allowing own recipe formulation to suit exactly the properties required in the parts. These systems sell themselves on the material cost required.

Mucell: A process where physical foaming using carbon dioxide or nitrogen as blowing agents in moulded parts ensures lighter, more rigid parts without sink marks.

Multinject: Multi-component moulding using more than one material in the injection moulded part to give structural, functional or decorative advantages. Examples are automotive tail lights,

KraussMaffei have built machines with the capability to inject up to 7 different materials on one part.

Silicoset: The process is used to mould liquid silicone rubber (LSR) which comprises two liquid components.

Skinform: A new process from Krauss-Maffeiwhich combines thermoplastic injection moulding and polyurethane reaction injection moulding to achieve high quality tactile finish. Mainly used for automotive interior.

Twinform: The use of a rotating center platen and injection from two sides to achieve multi-component parts, commonly used in automotive interior trim and packaging industry. Advantages are lower clamping tonnages.

Water injection (WIT), Gas injection (GIT) technologies: technologies to hollow out plastic parts to reduce material cost, remove sink marks, improve cycle times. Commonly used for coolant pipes, steering wheels, handles, roof rack frames.
CCM (Clear Coat Moulding) coats high-value parts with a flawless, thin, glass-clear layer produced by a two-component PUR system.
