First, we refurbished the old moulds, which included the replacement of the entire hot runner system in one of them possibly in a very short time. To be able to meet demand, we dedicated a machine only to Nass products, but occasianally we had to include two other machines in production and eventually managed to catch up on production. Since then, we replaced the old moulds with new ones and have made 6 additional moulds.
Development of a new industrial connector
Mikropakk has also worked on developing a new Kontakträger that is lighter in weight, simpler in geometry, easier to install and has fewer parts.
Development of a 2k component
The original part was injection moulded and manually fitted with a seal. The goal of the development was to replace this two-step process with 2k injection moulding. The main or hard component was a given by the manufacturer, our engineers had to select a fitting soft component, namely a TPE. After testing 3 types of materials, we concluded that the most frequently used type showcased the best properties along with the hard component.
Thanks to these two successful developments and serving as a reliable contract manufacturer, we are proud to have built up a long-term partnership with the manufacturer.
