Insert Molding

Sophisticated forms, impressive aesthetics

Digitization leads the way: limits are there to be overcome. Due to rapid technological change, customers expect more: everything is more individual, more modern, more functional, more beautiful! We are constantly looking for innovations that make our processes more economical and efficient for you. This approach resulted in the insert molding process. For this purpose, we combine the processes of hot stamping, vacuum forming, and injection molding in one operation. This is a quantum leap in economic surface decoration. Even decors on complex 3D geometries can be realized with insert molding. Tactile designs are just as feasible as backlighting and special haptic effects. Benefit from the enormous degrees of freedom that this process offers you.

Always offer your customers something special

Functional surfaces, intelligent designs, and extravagant shapes turn products into sought-after objects. Speakers turn into decorative elements and electronic devices surprise with extraordinary surfaces, for example. Customers want to emphasize their individuality in all areas of life. And they expect you to support them. Play with shapes and decorations. Work with elements such as organically curved components, haptic effects, and light. Insert molding allows you to be creative, because unique designs will secure the future of your products. At KURZ we are happy to partner with you when it comes to offering your customers innovative surface solutions.

Insert Molding - the innovative technology for exclusive surfaces

Are you looking for a decoration process that can be used to finish even highly profiled and curved parts in premium quality? Opt for insert molding. With this method, several production steps necessary for the production of such parts can be completed in one step: hot stamping, vacuum or compressed air molding, plastic injection molding, and precision cutting. Please contact us at the beginning of your planning so that we can design your part geometry with a process that’s as flexible as possible. Another plus is that you’ll only have one point of contact, as your decoration processes are provided from a single source.
