Top quality in no time at all

Rapid tooling and rapid injection moulding are the magic words – and yet describe everything but magic: they are part of the comprehensive problem-solving expertise in injection moulding with which we take on your remit. From the efficient production of injection moulds made of high-strength aluminium to the rapid, economical production of high-precision injection moulded parts on our own injection moulding machines. Rely on our experience and quality management to ensure we meet your exact requirements.

we are here for you!

injection molding process

prototype injection moulding

Is your plastic part ready for series production? Our high-quality injection moulded plastic parts from series material provide concrete answers – without investing in an expensive series tool. Thanks to our innovative production process, you can hold your injection moulding prototype in your hands within a short space of time and check the construction and design for the appropriate series production.

pre-production injection moulding/bridge tooling

Do you need a specific number of plastic parts at short notice? Your series tool is not going to be ready in time? We support you in the economical production of injection moulded parts in series production quality – and bridge the time between prototyping and the completion of the series tool with efficient bridge tooling. That’s how you shorten your product’s market entry time with injection moulded parts from priomold.

small series moulding

Does your need for plastic parts not justify the costly and laborious creation of a series tool? Depending on the type of materials used, we can produce quantities of 50,000+ injection moulded parts on our high-quality tools. And even with several aluminium tools, there is usually a cost advantage over commissioning a steel series tool. You can flexibly cover your annual requirement for injection moulded parts and supply your customers with our small series injection moulding.

two-component (2k) injection moulding

We realise the rapid and economical production of your two-component plastic injection moulded parts made from different plastic materials in the 2C injection moulding process, in which two or more plastic components are processed using transfer technology. The preform is inserted into another cavity and overmoulded with other components. Thanks to this injection moulding technique, 2C injection moulded parts can even be produced economically in small quantities.

insert technology

Insert technology has proven itself as a method for prototype and small series production with low peripheral complexity: Prefabricated metal parts (inserts) are inserted by hand and overmoulded with thermoplastic materials in the process. Common inserts are threaded inserts, sheet metal parts or plug contacts for hybrid injection moulded parts. Thanks to our modern machines, we can map sealing zones in high quality and avoid unwanted overfeeding.

Your idea takes shape here

You think it, we produce it! Using a specially developed rapid tooling process, we create the right aluminium injection moulds on state-of-the-art HSC milling centres, which are then used to produce your plastic injection moulded parts. Fast and in outstanding quality.

Information centre

Why should you prefer an injection moulded part to a 3D printed part?
Injection moulded parts from priomold match parts from series tools in terms of quality and surface finish. In addition, injection moulded parts reflect the true material properties of the respective plastic and are therefore suitable for visual and functional prototypes.

Are injection moulded parts expensive and complicated?
It can be economical to have injection moulded parts made by priomold even with small quantities. Thanks to our automated processes, we can produce plastic parts for you efficiently, cost-effectively and with a short cycle time. You can order injection moulded parts from us as easily as milling or 3D printing parts. We will provide you with a quote based on your CAD file and produce injection moulded parts within a few working days.

What should an enquiry to priomold contain for us to be able to make you the most suitable offer possible?
It is best to supply us with the 3D data and/or drawing, the desired material, the initial quantity and, if applicable, the series quantity and application with your enquiry.

Which data formats can we process?
priomold works with common, international data interfaces that can be exported from virtually any CAD environment. These include STEP (.stp, .step), IGES (.igs, .iges), and STL (.stl).

How quickly can I get a quote from priomold?
Our priority is short turnaround times, and this also applies to preparing quotations. If you contact us using our enquiry form, you can expect a detailed quote within one working day.

How do I design my plastic parts’ wall thicknesses?
Geometries of plastic parts produced by injection moulding should have the most homogeneous wall thickness possible. Accumulations of material and bulky wall thickness may lead to sink marks.
It is better to apply structures and reinforcing ribs rather than increase the wall thickness.

What makes a plastic injection moulded part expensive and complex?
High wall thickness can cause long cooling times and sink marks. Sink marks and gloss spots can form due to variations in wall thickness. These factors make the parts more expensive and complex to produce.

What makes a tool expensive and complex?
Internal undercuts make oblique cores necessary.
This results in high throughput times in toolmaking. Contour ejectors (i.e., there are no straight surfaces on which ejectors can be placed) require contour adjustments to the ejectors. All these factors make a tool more expensive and complex.

Which materials do we use?
We can process all common thermoplastics on our injection moulding machines. These include: thermoplastics such as ABS, PC, PA66, PA6, PC-ABS, POM, PP, PE, PEEK which are available with various fillers such as glass fibres, glass beads, carbon fibres, mineral fibres and much more. We also process thermoplastic elastomers (behave like rubber), such as TPE or TPV.

Who provides the material?
You are welcome to provide the material for your project yourself. You can indicate this immediately in our enquiry form.

Can I specify the shrinkage?
You are welcome to specify the plastic shrinkage yourself in our enquiry form.

Which quantities can we produce?
We produce injection moulded parts from a quantity of 1 to 100,000 pieces, depending on the plastic used and customer requirements.

I do not have any in-house capacity, can priomold design components suitable for injection moulding or assist us with this?
We would be pleased to offer you the optimisation and/or design specifically for injection moulding based on your drawing or sample part. Our experts will then provide you with the revised component as a STEP file.

Does priomold offer complementary services such as painting, packaging, assembly or the like?
We have a large network of partners and can offer you many services. This way, you have one contact person for your project and get everything from one source. Please do get in touch with us!

What form of initial sampling does priomold offer?
priomold offers initial sampling according to VDA or according to customer requirements, just ask us for a quote! We also offer entries in IMDS upon request.

Is there a time limit for the storage of the tools?
Our standard free-of-charge storage period for your tools is three years after the last parts order.

How quickly can injection moulded parts be delivered to you?
Depending on the complexity of the component, priomold can supply you with plastic parts in series quality within a few working days. We have already completed projects in less than three working days. You can let us know what is your desired delivery date in our enquiry form
