Custom-made by Wolf

Your tailor made material 

We produce special compounds based on mostly engineering and high performance polymers following your formulation or the material’s characteristics desired.

When the material’s properties are not known, we analyse the service conditions of your components and we develop the suitable formulation.

If the optimal material for a specific application is not present in the product range, we can either modify an existing material, making it suitable or even develop one specifically based on another polymer such as PAI, PEEK, PEI, PESU, PET, PK, POM, PPS, PU, TPI, PPSU, LCP, ETFE etc.

Eventually we can provide the product in form of plastic granules, semi-finished products or final parts.

Often, large quantities or long development times are not required.

Granules

We have the right solution for every project

Almost all ZEDEX® families’ materials are available in form of plastic granules and are suitable for injection moulding.

Some materials have even been modified and thus optimised for injection moulding manufacturing. However if you require a different viscosity, do not hesitate to contact us.

The general rule is:

  • The granules are ex-stock
  • Available as 5kg, 10kg and 25kg in bagged goods
  • Available as 500kg, 1000kg and 1500kg in big bags

For processing is generally needed a dry air funnel and very good material drying. Download our recommendations for injection moulding processing.

Your tailor made compound

Targeted influencing of material properties is possible. Based on decades of experience and thanks to intensive research, we can specifically influence the properties of the base polymers and demonstrate the changes through laboratory facilities.

Through the property changes, we can e.g.

  • improve friction and wear behaviour
  • increase stiffness and strength, especially at high temperatures
  • improve the precision by reducing the thermal expansion coefficient
  • increase elasticity and mechanical damping
  • improve the diffusion resistance
  • increase the thermal and / or electrical conductivity (antistatic finishes)
  • achieved antibacterial effect
  • set up the colour
  • reduce the costs

Have a look to our compound development section and/or do not hesitate to send us an enquiry.

 

 

Semi-finished products

We have the right solution for every project

Semi-finished products made of ZEDEX® families’ materials are available in the form of sheets, solid and hollow bars.

The ZEDEX® dimensions’ availability depends on different factors such extrusion feasibility, known market needs, internal strategic decisions etc.

The general rule is:

  • Sheets with a thickness from 2 to 100mm
  • Hollow bars with diameters from 30/18 to 380/300mm
  • Solid rods with a diameter from 6 to 210mm

With a finely coordinated range of manufacturable dimensions, machining with reduced waste is possible. In addition, we also offer blanks from each dimension.

Your tailor made semi-finished product

Based on strategic and market needs, we have decided to include only some producible sizes of our ZEDEX® families’ materials as ex-stock products and to manufacture the others sizes as just in time products with minimum order quantities.

If the optimal semi-finished size for a specific final part is not present in the product range, it is subjected to a too high MOQ or the dispatch time is too long, do not hesitate to contact us. We can react flexibly and, if there is a justified need and quantity, we can include the producible desired size of any ZEDEX® material as an ex-stock size or even produce a tailor-made tool to minimize waste, that arises during machining. Take advantage of these opportunities, since it is possible.

We also offer you the possibilities:

  • to buy semi-finished products after we have developed the optimal compound for your component. Check out our section of tailor-made granules
  • to extrude the compound you produced / developed if we think it is interesting project. Do not hesitate to send us an enquiry.

Costumised componets

Customised components

We offer machine elements according to customer drawings or specifications. If there are no standard parts available in the desired dimensions, then we are the right contact to manufacture the following components according to your requirements:

  • plain bearing bushes
  • slideways
  • spindle nuts
  • tracking rollers
  • gears
  • bearing shells
  • seals
  • wear and insulation parts
  • hydrodynamic plain bearings
  • metal-plastic composite parts

 

Value for money
The geometry of the components is optimised taking into account the properties of the selected material. If large quantities are required, then are parts according to drawings or specifications are generally cheaper than standard parts since the latter have to cover a larger area of ​​application.

 

Cost-efficient
Upon request, parts specially designed for your application can be manufactured. For these parts will be selected the most economical manufacturing process, so that the best possible price / performance ratio can be achieved.

 

Optimisation
If new designs are requested or if metallic machine elements are to be replaced by plastic, it is usually necessary to consult our application technology department.

Send us a request for quotation for your component. We will send you our best price and, if necessary, we will contact you to discuss the details of the application in order to find the optimal solution.

We have the right solution for every application

We manufacture your component according to your drawing or you name the application and we design your component according to your requirements – machined, injection moulded or 3D printed.

We determine the optimal manufacturing process for each component.

Optimal material not known

When the material’s properties needed are not known, we analyse the service conditions of your components and we develop the suitable formulation.

Send us the questionnaire with the service conditions of your component. The more complete, exact and exhaustive the information, the more precise the material selection will be.

Injection moulding

In our section on processing methods you will find some important data about our injection moulding options.

We do not offer an injection moulding service for compounds that have not been formulated by us.

Machining

In our section on processing methods you will find some important data about our machining options.

We do not offer machining services for products that we have not extruded.

3d print additive manufacturing

Visit our 3D Tribofilament website for more information on filaments and 3D printing. Visit our 3D Tribo Filament website at:

We do not offer a 3D printing service for products that are not based on our 3D tribofilament or your 3D filament that we have formulated.
