As a system partner, we work together with customers to find the optimum system solution for them across all technology types - from the machine through process engineering to automation. The KraussMaffei Group, with its three product brands KraussMaffei, KraussMaffei Berstorff and Netstal, can thus cover the complete range in machine construction for the plastics and rubber processing industry and serve customers on an individual basis.
Injection molding machinery
In the area of injection molding machinery, as full-range suppliers KraussMaffei and Netstal market injection molding machines that can produce large number of individual plastic parts. For this purpose, the plastic (= thermoplast) is liquefied and injected into molds. The melt hardens and cools down, resulting in finished moldings, for example, bottle tops, PET preforms, toys, car bumpers or sterile disposable plastic syringes for the medical sector. The extensive product portfolio in injection molding machinery ranges from hydraulic and all-electric injection molding machines, process and system solutions for processing thermoplasts, thermosetting plastics and elastomers, to the use of multicolor and multiple-component machines and special processes.
In the area of injection molding machinery, the KraussMaffei brand offers five series with clamping force magnitudes of 350 to 40 000 kN. Customers in the automotive sector, above all, who produce high-quality surfaces and lightweight elements, place their trust in product and system solutions from KraussMaffei. But also manufacturers of whites goods, medical technology, consumer durables and packaging solutions appreciate the high-performance offer.
The Netstal brand markets three product groups with clamping force magnitudes between 500 and 8000 kN. Particularly customers who manufacture precision parts for technical applications, packaging solutions, closures or PET preforms have confidence in the first-class offer from Netstal.
Reaction process machinery
In the area of reaction process machinery, the KraussMaffei brand offers an extensive product portfolio of machines and system, which can be used to process polyurethane raw materials and other reactive materials also with foaming agents. In a single process step, moldings are thus created through chemical reaction. This products are then used, for example, in the automotive sector as upholstery material in the vehicle interior or in the cooling and air conditioning systems for insulation.
KraussMaffei is also a system provider in the product areas mixing heads and dosing machines, presses, die cutters, flexible cutting systems and foaming tools as well as machines and systems for insulation applications.
KraussMaffei Berstorff is internationally synonymous with reliable and proven solutions in extrusion technology. The core business covers the production of plants for the complete process chain of compounding, pipe, profile, foil and sheet extrusion, physical foaming, manufacturing of technical rubber articles and semi-finished tire products.
Every machine and system from KraussMaffei Berstorff is custom-configured, for example, for the chemical industry, automotive, construction, packaging or pharmaceutical industry.
In the area of automation of injection molding machines and the planning and realization of complete production cells, we have over 30 years of experience with linear, articulated, industrial and side-removal robots.
