Landshut, Germany -- Landshut-based injection moulding machine manufacturer LWB-Steinl held its Technology Days for the third time on 6th and 7th October. Around 120 people attended the event at Traunitz Castle in Landshut.
Managing Director and Partner, Peter Steinl said the company has survived the economic slump following the global financial crisis of 2008 and is now in a good position, not least to due the company's other division, STG Stanztechnik GmbH & Co KG, which makes metal inserts for automotive rubber profiles. Thanks to this spread of activities, the company has made a decision to diversify into other businesses.
In terms of injectino mlulding systems, Peter Steinl introduced a number of technical innovations, including a shear system to heat the material immedialteyl prior to injection. This â€œinternalâ€ heating-up produces cycle time benefits, ranging from 30 to 50 percent, over the conventional method, especially with large wall thicknesses.
