The designers and engineers support industrial designers and manufacturers of sophisticated products on all technical aspects of configuring the product and mold to suit the material used. In addition, our specialists help to realize color ideas in an exact way.
Decades of experience with plastic
An important step in the implementation of a product is the choice of the right material. In order to make the best decision, the designfabrik® has a large presentation area with an inspiring selection of material samples and application examples.
As a long-standing manufacturer of raw materials with a global presence we are very well informed, particularly when it comes to using plastic. The challenges of creating products with plastic are manifold: from determining the colors and surface finishes right through to optimizing the design and choice of material. Our first point of contact for design in plastic are the industrial designers from the designfabrik®. They can bridge the gap between the creative ideas of the designers and the possibilities but also the limits of plastic.
If necessary, the designers will also put customers in touch with our plastics specialists. These developers and engineers know everything there is to know about the possible material. If you are successful, we are too.
