For more sustainability in the automotive industry: Techniplas and KraussMaffei build new MXW 1000 ColorForm system
Production in the cleanroom
“We run this production process under cleanroom conditions. Thus, not a grain of dust can sneak in between the coating and the substrate surface while the mold is open,” said Luckner. “Accordingly, the entire system is equipped with a cleanroom enclosure. In this way, we achieve very low scrap rates.”
Efficient and sustainable production
Initially, ColorForm was developed for greater production efficiency and specific effects for vehicle interior components. At Techniplas, the MXW 1000 ColorForm system puts those qualities on full display. Today, however, aspects such as workplace safety and the CO2 footprint of the technology compared to other production methods are becoming more and more important. Again, the ColorForm process scores points here in multiple areas. Moreover, ColorForm components are increasingly used even in the exterior area because here as well, a classy appearance is a selling point for end customers.
Increased potential for saving
Not only does the ColorForm technology eliminate the need to transport and paint components, and to invest in a painting plant – the ColorForm components are also ready for installation as they are discharged from the highly automated production cell. This saves both production time and money for buffer storage and drying of the components.
