Research & development in the plastics processing sector

Developments in the plastics sector happen at a breakneck pace. Pekago stays up-to-date by regularly researching various aspects of injection moulding, TFC, coating and finishing. We quickly adopt innovative technologies in order to offer our clients a consistently wide range of top-quality services.

2020

Back to the basics of SFM

In 2020 we are spending time on the basics of structural foam moulding. Research and tests are focussed on improving the moulding process with the goal to reduce product weight and cycle time whilst improving the product surface. Special attention is given to parts that required coating afterwards.

2019

3D printing

Pekago has dedicated 2019 to 3D printing. We investigate how we can use 3D printing as an addition to conventional techniques, such as compact-injection moulding and thermoplastic foam casting.

2018

Mucell

As an addition to TFC, we have explored the possibilities of Mucell. The potential applications of this technique include the production of components for the aviation sector, where TFC may no longer be used.

2017

The use of carbon

In both the aviation and the medical equipment sectors, there is a strong interest in the combination of injection-moulded components with carbon. Carbon is strong, rigid, light and offers excellent permeability to X-rays. However, it is not as easy to shape as plastic. We have conducted various trials and discussed the results with our clients and suppliers. If you are interested in the possibilities of using carbon, we would be happy to tell you more. 

Think plastic, think Pekago!
