Founded as a mould construction enterprise, the decision to expand towards managing the entire production process in-house, and therefore add press machines to our fleet of equipment, allows us to also provide stamping services.
A service that ranges from preproduction of batches before the customer installs the mould to customers who are looking to order finished products.
Alongside the mould testing service, our machinery fleet consisting of 9 press machines from 25T to 180T (Engel, Arburg, Fanuc) allow us to provide stamping, screen-printing, pad printing, component assembly services etc. where required.
Thermoplastic polymers can be classified as amorphous or semi-crystalline based on their structure.
Polymers with an amorphous structure are normally transparent and suitable for use when constructing precision parts due to their remarkable dimensional stability.
Semi-crystalline plastics are usually opaque and are renowned for their ductility and good chemical inertia.
Plastic materials can also be classified based on their temperature resistance.
Standard polymers can be used at temperatures of under 100°C, whilst technopolymers can be used at between 100°C and 150°C and are characterised by good mechanical properties.
The extensive experience gained over the years allows Idea Stampi to use an incredible range of different materials, such as: PMMA, PEI , PPS, PC, PBT, PPO, POM, ABS, PC/ABS, PPA, PA6-PA66, PP, etc.
