We supply you with thermo-moulded, finished parts – ARTHUR KRÜGER is your professional partner when it comes to plastics!

The plastic is moulded using the thermal moulding method to the shape you want – up to a size of 2,200 x 3,300 mm. Our portfolio includes the design, prototyping, tool construction and series production in single or twin-sheet processes. The parts are finished on our punches or 5-axis CNC machines. If needed, components can be welded, bonded or riveted in our plastics fitter’s shop. Certified according to ISO 9001:2015, we deliver services and products of the highest quality.

We design!

At our CAD/CAM workstations, our experienced team designs components and tools using solid works. We are also able to offer advice regarding the choice of the right material.

We build prototypes!

Our in-house 3D printer delivers prototypes for functional testing and acceptance before tool construction begins – this means we can ensure that you get the product you need without generating unnecessary costs before production starts.

We build tools!

With our own tool construction service, we make sure you get the best value for money. To suit your application, we design and produce aluminium or Ureol tools in the finest quality.

Advantages of the thermal moulding process

  • Excellent cost effectiveness
  • Fast delivery times for tools, sample parts and small series
  • Formats up to 2,200 x 3,300 mm possible!
  • Top surfaces! Every required surface can be accommodated.
  • Low tool costs
  • Optimised weight reduction thanks to thin walls even on large parts
  • Large selection of colours
  • Plastic recycling (all thermoplastics), even regenerated material can be used

Example applications

  • Linings, covers
  • Tool carriers, transport containers
  • Covers, housings
  • Protective glazing

  • Shower trays, consoles, interior

What is thermal moulding?

With thermal moulding, a panel (thickness < 1.5 mm) or film (thickness < 1.5 mm) made from thermoplastic semi-finished material is heated on both sides until the material becomes mouldable. The heated panel is then pressed using a vacuum or pressure against the contours of a moulding tool. This creates a negative. After cooling, the finished part is punched or the contours are milled. In principle, all thermoplastics can be processed using the thermal moulding method.

In addition to the single-sheet thermal moulding method already mentioned, we also offer the twin-sheet method, which offers greater rigidity of the components for the same amount of material consumption, allows you to choose different colours for the inside and outside and allows inserts to be integrated directly without bonding, for example. All common thermal moulding materials can be processed.
