Roctool announces the acqusition of Indumold and releases the 3ITech range

Roctool : 15 January, 2010  (New Product)
RocTool revealed for the first time at the Fakuma exhibition in 2009, the acquisition of Indumold, the moulding technology by induction of plastic materials developed by Kunststoff Institut L
As a result of this technology acqusition, together with the Cage System, RocTool will thus be able to propose to plastic specialists an expanded induction heating technology portfolio. Now, the induction heating circuits can either be integrated in the mould, as for example with Indumold, or around the mould, as is the case with the Cage System technology.

In the framework of this acquisition, the two engineers who had actively participated in the design and development of Indumold will still continue to work on the process, in collaboration with RocTool R&D team.

RocTool now owns 13 patents (9 previously), which allow it to adapt its satrategy to any part, in order to maximize the potential of both technologies.

Alexandre Guichard, CEO of RocTool states: “We have acquired four new patents, and we now can provide an enlarged offer through licensing agreements, with a higher protection for users. Our offer becomes global. The choice will be determined by materials and targeted applications: the most important thing is to offer the client an adapted answer to each type of production”.

'From 20 to 400C, with or without movement, open or closed mold… the combination of our technologies allows us to go forward', concludes Alexandre Guichard. The Cage System is presented for the first time today in Germany via a live demonstration at RocTool’s booth.

Protected by several patents, Indumold is completely dedicated to plastic injection. It has had significant commercial international success, especially in Germany, where the technology is now integrated in mass production in major companies in Germany. Kunststoff Institut Lüdenscheid has gathered around 100 industrial partners with whom the Indumold process benefits from an excellent visibility.

“Our expertise in plastic processing and RocTool’s in the inductive heating systems are complementary. Our R&D teams will work together and we anticipate their creativity and skills will soon generate synergies. RocTool will be able to propose its clients to test both technologies via our trials platforms in Germany, as it is the case in France at the Pôle Européen de Plasturgie” adds Stefan Schmidt, Managing Director of Kunststoff Institut Lüdenscheid.
