Hot embossing of functional models – also as preliminary stage to injection molding

With the hot embossing technology, your ideas can be translated into functional models – at very low tooling costs, which makes the technology particularly suitable for injection molding prototyping.

Starting from feasibility studies based on your design over the fabrication of tools through to the selection of the most suitable polymer: We support you in the implementation of your project idea!
After the design phase is concluded, a first tool is manufactured on a silicone basis, materials are defined in concordance with your ideas and first functional models are produced by hot embossing. From the first functional model, Hahn-Schickard takes into account the design specifications arising from injection molding to enable a smooth transition into mass production for your product – the complete value chain as a one-stop-service.

Low costs thanks to tools made from silicone

On Hahn-Schickard‘s custom-made hot press (Wickert Maschinenbau GmbH) precise and robust process development can be conducted due to finely adjustable parameters. This flexibility allows the hot embossing of complex microstructures in a large range of thermoplasts with a cost-efficient silicone-based tool to minimize the costs for your proof-of-concept. Based on our extensive experience in sealing  of polymer parts, we consider all aspects from the very first design, to make your product as perfect as possible.

Hahn-Schickard is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 and guarantees processing of all inquiries with the utmost care. Our experts from different disciplines accompany your project in order to help you find the best-possible solution– contact us and together we will work out in which way we can support you and your project.
