Polyamide stock shapes: Automatic manufacture and quality testing

Fast, flexible custom casting made to order

Ensinger has now largely automated the manufacturing processes of custom cast stock shapes. The new facilities at the Cham production location permit the flexible and efficient production of all plates and rods from the TECAST product line. Fixed programmed production sequences and fully automatic testing for cavities ensure a consistently high standard of quality which benefits customers during further processing. 

Transition to different plate thicknesses takes minimal time, and shapes ca be infinitely adjusted with just the click of a mouse. This allows Ensinger to manufacture standard products at a high output rate and offer availability at short notice. 

Also, in the field of non-standard products, the Cham factory can respond quickly and flexibly to specific customer needs, as the plate thickness can be altered precisely to the millimetre in line with the dimensions of the end product. The millimetre-precise adjustment of material thickness makes economic sense, as the machining process takes less time and less waste is produced. This results in major savings in terms of component costs. 

Extensive stocked range 

Ensinger offers you one of the biggest stocked ranges of cast polyamide plates and rods available on the market, with an enormous variety of dimensions, colours and modifications. TECAST plates are available in thicknesses ranging from 8 to 130 mm in the formats 1000 x 500 mm, 2000 x 500 mm, 1000 x 1000 mm and 1000 x 2000 mm. Now additionally available: 8 to 60 mm thick plates in the formats 1220 x 1000 mm, 1220 x 2000 mm, 1220 x 3048 mm and 610 x 3048 mm at short notice from stock. 

For contact with foodstuffs, Ensinger also offers the material TECAST T natural, complete with semi-finished product approval testing. The plates and rods are in conformance with FDA (Art. 21 CFR 177.1500 (a) (b)) and comply with the requirements of Regulations (EU) no. 10/2011, (EC) no. 1935/2004 and (EC) no. 2023/2006.
