From the idea to the market launch

Competent, individual and innovative. Our development center is your partner for all tasks relating to plastic. At this center, we bundle our core competences in the areas of design, prototype construction, toolmaking and special machine construction. Together we will develop your solution.
We understand product ideas and stand by our clients as a proficient partner. We determine the optimal material selection, create a product design suitable for plastics, produce the first functional prototypes and build the required injection molding tool. We then design the necessary machines and the peripherals and automation required for production.
Together we prepare developed product concepts optimally for integration into your production processes, or we take over the manufacturing process for you entirely. This way, cost-effectiveness and compliance with the highest quality standards are guaranteed for all products.

The development center in detail

Konstruktion Kunststoffverarbeitung Oberhofer Kunststofftechnik
State-of-the-art manufacturing know-how in mold making and decades of experience in processing plastics are the characteristics of our construction department. The high vertical range of manufacture makes the full portfolio of a modern injection molding company possible:
  • Development of articles
  • Injection-molded construction of articles and assemblies
  • 3D-printing-compatible article construction
  • Construction of injection molds (1-, 2- and 3-component molds)
  • Construction of machine periphery
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Fully automatic assembly and testing machines
3D-Druck und 3D-Scan Kunststoffverarbeitung Oberhofer Kunststofftechnik
3D printing and 3D scanning

Using our own state-of-the-art 3D printers, we produce functional prototypes for our clients from a wide range of plastics.

  • Each print is monitored in real time via smartphone APP

or desktop PC. Via integrated webcam, the application user can observe the print and re-adjust the process remotely at any time if needed.

Dimensionally accurate replicas are also possible, as our 3D scanners capture products so that they can then be 3D printed immediately.

For internal as well as external clients, we offer 3D printed:

  • Prototypes
  • small series
  • Machine elements
  • Auxiliary constructions
  • Spare parts
  • Cavities for pre-series and small series
Werkzeugbau Kunststoffverarbeitung Oberhofer Kunststofftechnik

We also rely on a lot of experience in toolmaking and design, project and build complex series and test tools. Our in-house toolmaking shop additionally guarantees you short response times for tool maintenance and servicing work. We offer:

  • Pre-series and test tools
  • Small series tools
  • Index tools
  • Single component tools
  • Multicomponent tools (2 and 3 components)
  • Tool weights up to 5t
  • Spotting press for fine tuning
Automatisierung und Sondermaschinenbau Kunststoffverarbeitung Oberhofer Kunststofftechnik
Automation and special machine construction
Automation solutions are a core element of our portfolio. Where the product, quality and capacity utilization require and allow it, we strive for automation. We implement the following automation solutions in-house:
  • Fully automated assembly machines (interlinked handling / robot systems, vibratory bowl separation, rotary indexing tables)
  • Fully automated testing and sorting machines (leak testing, camera systems with injection molding feature recognition, carton loading)
  • Optimization of in-house production (grippers, handling systems)
  • Assembly support and fixtures
  • Linked peripherals
