Moulds for two component parts bring remarkable efficiency

Axxicon Mould Technology : 08 November, 2001  (New Product)
Axxicon Mould Technology Group has the capability and the experience to support customers in the development of complex high volume moulds for two-components moulding.
Danish-based Mikron Faarevejle A/S, joined the Axxicon Mould Technology Group as a highly specialised mould manufacturer for complex high volume customer specified moulds.

Mikron Faarevejle A/S established a strong reputation as a supplier of two-component moulds. Over the years, customers including Hewlett Packard, Bosch Telecom, Simrad Shipmate and Deutsche Telewerket have used the technology to achieve a lower unit price.

The two component moulding technique allows for the simultaneous manufacture of two components in one mould. Although complex to design and manufacture, the two-shot mould brings remarkable efficiency, producing two components at the lowest possible production cost throughout the life of the product.

According to Mikron Faarevejle Managing Director Susanne Andersen, it is crucial that components are designed for manufacturability. “We need to consider a large number of aspects including part design, cycle time, mould liability and product lifetime. By getting involved early on in the product development process, our customers are able to fully benefit from our broad experience with this fast developing technique.

To back up its extensive know-how, Mikron Faarevelje A/S has an in-house test centre which is used for testing, optimising and verification of new moulds and turnkey projects. In addition, the test-centre is also used for specific customer programmes, application development and research in different materials and techniques.

Andersen: “This service saves our customers time and enables them to make all the relevant tests, in the same location where the mould is manufactured, debugged and approved. This provides a unique opportunity for our customers to carry out research and develop the materials simultaneously with the mould manufacturing start-up. We also provide the opportunity to make material tests on specially designed in-house test moulds.

“The ability to deliver a service that goes beyond just producing a mould is a noticeable advantage for our customers. This provides the customer with a competitive edge in today’s demands for time to market, high efficiency and quality products.”

Axxicon Mould Technology has already established a strong reputation for the development and production of standardised mould systems for optical media, such as CD, DVD, Smarts Cards and moulds for the manufacturing of ISO test specimens through its acclaimed AIM Mould System.
