High performance plastics - plates, rods and tubes 

High quality semi-finished products from plastics fulfil the specific requirements that customers expect from quality products. Ensinger offers products from over 100 different plastics. Besides all standard thermoplastics, Ensinger develops and extrudes a multitude of special materials according to customers demands. Round rods, sheets and tubes are offered in a range of small dimensional increments and with special properties to meet your requirements.

Machined Parts

Machining is the fastest, most economical way to produce a finished technical plastic component – particularly for small production runs. Ensinger Machined Parts Division boasts decades of experience in the machining of high temperature and engineering plastics. Equipped with state-of-the-art technological facilities, our highly qualified team of specialists manufacture precision components to the very narrowest tolerances at our two fully independent machine shops.

Elekem - PEEK and PTFE Tubes

Elekem specialises in the production of spin moulded PEEK and PTFE tube products for final machining. In-house specialist production methods offer complete flexibility of manufacturing, producing high performance, versatile tubes in custom made sizes. Furthermore, through the use of fillers and additives, Elekem are able to customise the material blend to suit particular application needs. 

Compounds

Ensinger Compounds offers products with improved sliding friction pro­perties, materials with defined electrical characteristics and com­pounds for me­dical technology. Detectable or thermally conduc­ting and light weight plastics are also part of the innovative product range.

Ensinger Building Products

The insulation of windows, doors and facades using insulbar® profiles, achieves first class results with regard to energy saving and the reduction of heating and air conditioning costs. In doing so, insulbar® profiles satisfy the highest quality demands in every respect. They have been used successfully around the world for 30 years.

Industrial Profiles

Ensinger demonstrates a high degree of excellence in engineering pro­files and special tubes from technical plastics for industrial ap­pli­ca­tions, with geometries and materials precisely tuned to the specific application. Profiles and tubes are manufactured with pressure and temperature-regulated ex­trusion. This is a continuous production pro­cess in which plastics are plastified in an extruder and then forced at pressure through a spe­cial­ly shaped die.

Sintered Plastics

Through the use of die pressing, precise direct formed components are manufactured from high temperature plastics. High-speed vertical automatic presses (mechanical or hydraulic) compact the powder in the mould die. The mouldings are then sintered for some hours at high tem­per­a­tures with the exclu­sion of oxygen. The die pressing technique in­volves practically no material waste. In most cases, reworking is not required. Due to the short cycle time, die pressing is also particularly economical for precise volume parts from batch sizes of 1,000.

Thermix

Thermix® plastic warm-edge spacers from Ensinger break the ther­mal bridge at the transition between the glass and the frame. The combination of a high-grade stainless steel alloy and highly in­su­la­ting plastic ensures that the respective material characteristics are optimally used. This results in best insulating values.

Industries

Aerospace and aircraft

As requested by our customers, we have checked and qualified a large share of our materials against required specifications. We can qualify additional materials on request. Due to the special requirements of the aerospace industry, Ensinger takes on responsibility for: raw materials receipt inspections, raw materials specifications, composition specifications for individual articles, final inspections, issuing of inspection certificates, and much more.

Plastics for food technology

Attaining food grade plastic compliant with the stringent demands of FDA and European Food Contact regulations, is nowadays a key requirement for thermoplastics machining operators in this industry. Ensinger offers this solution: alongside our engineering thermoplastic standard portfolio, we also offer a special portfolio of food contact materials, fulfilling the specific demands of food technology in terms of safety and performance.

Mechanical engineering

Ensinger produces a wide range of plastics, which are predominantly used for mechanical applications and components of industrial machines. The field of mechanical engineering is traditionally focused on steel and metal alloys in order to achieve high mechanical strength and precision of the parts. Nowadays, replacing metal with engineering plastics is common due to their wide range of benefits. High performance plastics can offer a solution where other traditional materials fail, opening up the doors to improvement and progress.

Plastic solutions for medical technology 

The wide range of Ensinger medical grade (MT) materials offers designers a choice of options to develop innovative medical products, which provide a high degree of safety and added value. The different manufacturing methods used by Ensinger, such as extrusion, machining, injection moulding, profile extrusion and compounding, offer the customer numerous ways develop and produce its product together with Ensinger along the value added chain.

Oil and gas

Technical plastics have a major contribution to make towards improving existing solutions within the oil and gas industry due to modern materials offering a greater range of benefits. The industry demands of high temperature, mechanical strength and chemical resistance call for the need of materials suitable for the most extreme environments. With extensive experience in the oil and gas field, Ensinger work closely with customers to achieve the optimum solution to fit their application needs. Technical material experts can provide customers with a qualified material recommendation which can be confirmed by practical testing. 

Pure and resistant plastics for semiconductor production

Of all the industries in which engineering plastics can help engineers solve design problems, the most challenging is the semiconductor industry. Ensinger plastics, suitable for the semiconductor industry, are designed with rigid and demanding environmental concerns in mind.  In addition to that, our specialists have worked directly with engineers in the industry to understand the unique challenges that are associated with all aspects of the manufacturing process.
