The POLYTEC SOLUTION FORCE’s engineers and designers have been thinking about ways in which other industrial branches could profit from our group’s extensive, automobile sector know-how.
Creating visionary plastics solutions.
Under this motto, the POLYTEC SOLUTION FORCE develops answers to the customer demands of tomorrow.
This proactive approach has been made possible by the concentration of the extensive expertise available throughout the entire POLYTEC GROUP, which is comprised by the technological and manufacturing competences at its various locations, a high degree of value added, innovative strengths in the product and material development fields and a profound understanding of the market.
The group enhances the performance capacity of products by reducing their weight, improving their tensile strength and/or replacing metals.
In order to facilitate effective lightweight engineering, POLYTEC employs structural design for volume minimisation, material substitution and the integration of multiple functions in a single component.
In this regard, POLYTEC benefits from the exceptional breadth of its technology portfolio. Consequently, irrespective of whether injection moulding, fibre-reinforced plastics or polyurethane are involved, POLYTEC finds the perfect material or optimum material mix for the lightweight construction requirements of the future.
As opposed to metals, plastics offer far greater design freedom. Indeed, by means of intelligent engineering, differing tasks, which would normally be assumed by several components, can be combined directly in just one product.
For example, the functions of the air-oil separator and oil lines can all be integrated into an oil pan.
Such compaction not only reduces the number of components, but also the weight of the finished part. Moreover, it allows the optimum use of the frequently limited installation space, while simultaneously lowering assembly expenditure.
During the development of plastic solutions, overall expenditure is subject to constant surveillance. Moreover, the group’s technological independence enables it to constantly find an ideal combination of performance, investment and component cost.
Both the product itself and, depending upon the anticipated batch size, the related manufacturing process, are optimised. Accordingly, the design of the latter focuses on the outlay for materials, production efficiency and the minimisation of tooling investment.
As a result of the product development know-how available throughout its group, POLYTEC is able to employ and combine differing materials to perfection. Furthermore, this allows a cost-optimised approach to the differing requirements of a part or module.
POLYTEC sees the world through the eyes of its customers and is fully conscious of the needs of the users of its products.
Potential is recognised thanks to our extensive understanding of plastics and our out of the box thinking required for perfect answers. Thus independently from concrete orders, we create optimised solutions that provide clear customer advantages.
The concept for a washing machine based on a plastic construction was developed in precisely this manner. We reduced the number of components significantly and new design possibilities opened up as a side effect. Although currently still in the prototype phase, in future this concept will allow the major simplification of household appliance production and hence a lasting reduction in overall costs. This approach will be employed to consider your products and thus facilitate the joint development of the best possible solution for your clientele.
