Processing prowess from prototype to production
You don't just need to work with experts in materials and design. You need a team that also has an intimate knowledge of processing technologies. Standard and advanced.
That's why we've made significant investments to equip our process technology laboratory. To build a connected, collaborative team of industry-experienced personnel to support you all the way from prototype to production and every step of the product development cycle.
Our injection molding capabilities for product and process development and customer prototyping support include 33-ton and 120-ton Cincinnati Milacron injection molding machines, a 170-ton Van Dorn injection molding machine and a 400-ton Engel injection molding machine.
Fluid/gas assisted injection molding is one of the advanced molding technologies supported by BASF Performance Materials. Our laboratory possesses both Cinpres water injection and gas injection equipment, with the capability of water injection and gas injection individually, or as gas-water hybrid processes. Fluid assist processes are possible on our 400 ton Engel, 170 ton Van Dorn and 150 metric ton Battenfeld co-injection molding machines.
Our extrusion capabilities include a 2.5-in. Royle Extrusion line. The process technology laboratory supports our customers and development efforts in tubing, cable jacketing, and pipe.
Materials processing support doesn't stop in our lab. We can come to your site. Work with your machines. Speak with your team on what is working well, and what isn't.
Whether new product development or troubleshooting an existing product, our experts are on your side to transform average performance to high performance.
