Injection moulds at AKF
Injection moulds: maintenance, repair & guidance
AKF Plastics works with many different types of injection moulds. As injection moulding specialists we can work with injection moulds from aluminum for very small series, hardened tool steel for medium series, and hardened injection moulds for larger series.
We work with relatively simple ‘straight-open-close’ moulds, but also with moulds that have mechanical, hydraulic and/or pneumatic sliders and cores. We also have experience with moulds with folding or screw cores. AKF Plastics also processes injection moulds for 2 components (2K technology). In short, we can use all your shapes and types of moulds on our injection moulding machines.
Your injection moulds can vary from 15 x 15 x 10 cm (25 Kg) to 150 x 150 x 150 cm (27 tons). From small to large, we can use your moulds for the most optimal and reliable productions.
Moulds at AKF Plastics Naarden
If you do not yet have the necessary injection mould, or moulds, for the production of your items, AKF Plastics can also take care of the purchase of these for your company. We source the required injection moulds exclusively in Western Europe.
We charge a commission on the purchase of the relevant injection moulds for the necessary guidance and consultancy work. By exclusively using mould suppliers from Western Europe we assure the best quality, but above all the much-needed warranty. Naturally, as a top injection moulding company, we prefer to work with the best tools so that we can guarantee the highest product quality with the shortest possible lead times and with the best product prices.
AKF Plastics performs in-house maintenance on your injection moulds.
If necessary, we can have any repairs, changes and possible overhauls carried out by our extensive network of mould makers in the Netherlands. Would you like to have a repair carried out, or are you unsure whether your current injection mould meets our high standards? Then let us carry out an inspection.
Your injection moulds are stored in-house free of charge for follow-up orders.
AKF Plastics has an optimised, well-secured mould garden. Your mould will be labelled and stored safely.
