The production method scope is considered a distinguishing feature of ELCO. With our machine park facilitating three key processing methods for plastic products, there are no limitations to innovative ideas that can be achieved. The demand is growing for combined organiser systems such as TABLET, SLIDE and WATCH. With the best of three methods, ELCO promises ground-breaking efficiency and maximum flexibility in implementation.
With modern injection moulding machinery, the injection moulding of thermoplastics constitutes the core of in-house production – made extremely economical on account of the high volumes produced. Sophisticated plastic products of every dimension (from 3 g to 3.5 kg) and for every application are produced quickly, cleanly, reliably and, if required, in combination with hybrid technology, in-mould techniques or multi-component technology. In addition to standard thermoplastics such as PS, PE and PP, we also use high-quality industrial plastics such as ABS, ASA, PMMA, PA, PC, POM, TPE etc.
Thermoforming or vacuum forming has emerged as an economical and effective processing method, which logically complements injection moulding and extrusion. High-performance thermoforming machines ensure smooth and efficient production of cutlery trays up to 1.2 m in width.
In particular, extrusion of hollow-section profiles made from environmentally friendly polystyrene is a characteristic ELCO specialty. The method’s high efficiency is also achieved through immediate finishing and customised packaging immediately in the course of the manufacturing process.
