Comprehensive support throughout the process, from the design stage to the maintenance of your high speed moulds
Pilot mould for a medical device
A comprehensive offer for turnkey plastic injection moulds
CURTIL's ingenuity consists of much more than just knowledge and resources - it is based on non-stop communication and careful listening to our customers' needs. That is what allows us to push back the boundaries of excellence.
Studies and 3D design
We help you to design and develop the product you need. Our “product process design” department and the “industrial design” department work together using a concurrent engineering methodology.
For you this means guaranteed feasibility and compliance with quality, cost and deadline requirements.
As soon as we receive your drawings or after a co-development process, we will submit a “tool concept” to you, including: kinematics, injection system, number of cavities based on the machine to be used and the moulding speed.
MANUFACTURING AND MACHINING
Thanks to our modern machinery and the level of excellence acquired by working for the aviation industry, we develop products that combine performance and efficiency. They are finished to a precision of within a micron, in spite of the effects of hot/cold moulding cycles. Our service includes all the manufacturing and machining steps.
Our moulds are designed for use in ISO 7 clean rooms.
FROM 8 TO 144 SINGLE-FACE CAVITIES
PROCESS VALIDATION PHASE
On plastic injection mould projects, a dedicated team takes care of the co-development of your product using 3D CAD. We will develop a pilot mould capable of producing several million pre-production parts. This allows the injection parameters to be adjusted for the future production mould.
MOULD BASE MANUFACTURING
Our expertise and independence also mean we are able to meet the needs of integrated plastic injection moulding customers or subcontractors who need high quality mould bases to use with their own moulds. We manufacture our own mould bases. The grade of steel we choose to use makes all the difference.
An injection mould is a complex assembly, and our aim is to optimise your productivity thanks to our ability to identify and quickly correct any technical malfunctions or dips in performance.
Our approach is based on continuous improvement and we can give you the benefit of our latest innovations. The controls we carry out are essential steps that enable us to certify an injection mould before delivering it.
Everything possible is done to provide you with an irreproachable service and the highest performing products, thereby ensuring your satisfaction and continued excellence.
Our metrology and control department is equipped with three Zeiss CNC coordinate measuring machines. A production test on the final injection moulding machine and checks on the first mouldings produced by the customer enable us to sign off the quality dossier.
INTERCHANGEABLE MOULD INSERTS
HOT RUNNER BALANCING
MOULD GUARANTEED FOR 4 MILLION INJECTIONS OR 2 YEARS
TESTS ON DEDICATED MACHINES
After assembling the tool, our technicians specialised in protocol validation and optimisation fine tune the process.
Thanks to our 4 high-performance NETSTAL injection moulding machines (100 T, 150 T, 450 T and 500 T), we adjust the qualification of the process to reach the injection mould's performance targets as quickly as possible.
For an even more effective service and to guarantee optimum process qualification, we can also use your production equipment (injection moulding machines and tools).
ACCEPTANCE OF MASTER PARTS
RAMPING UP TO PRODUCTION SPEED
VALIDATION IN THE PRESENCE OF THE CUSTOMER
COMMISSIONING AND MAINTENANCE
To guarantee optimum commissioning of your mould, our technicians come out to put it into service on your site.
In order to offer you continuity of service and performance all year round, our maintenance department puts all its energy and expertise into guaranteeing parts maintenance and mould repairs within timeframes defined in advance. We work without stopping your production and once a retrofit is finished, we come out to your production site and complete the reassembly.
