Polymer Injection Molding
Your turnkey injection molding partner
Tons of Material Usage per Year
Built on quality, reliability and production excellence
Cutting-edge engineering & application-oriented production technology
Innovative design engineering and precision in polymer injection molding production at the highest standards.
As a full-service provider with more than 70 years of experience, we at OECHSLER understand that our customers only require the perfect polymer solutions. Thus, we design and engineer forward-driven, high-precision, and top-notch products customized for your industry. Those can be realized in high-volume series production with the machinery of up to 700 kN of clamp force. Throughout our global production network, we set the highest standards regarding product quality and operational excellence. This is validated by profound product and material testing and 100% end-of-line testing.
Creating the perfect solution for Injection Molding
We believe product excellence comes down to every detail. Thus, our development team of more than 120 engineers delivers innovative approaches to products and processes. Those are ideated in design-thinking workshops by our cross-functional teams, and then aligned with the ideas and specifications of our customers to ensure outstanding products.
Shaping Injection Molding ideas
As part of our development process, we use the digital product and process simulation to rethink the design and enhance the functionality of customer-specified products. Depending on your challenges, we also offer design-to-manufacturing, design-to-cost, and design-to-carbon-footprint services. Leveraging the technical benefits of Additive Manufacturing, we use Early and Rapid Prototyping to facilitate iteration loops with our customers.
Process know-how for all challenges
With more than 70 years of experience in high-volume production, OECHSLER is firm in setting up the ideal manufacturing infrastructure for our customers. That includes in-house toolmaking to ensure the highest product quality and accuracy. Depending on customer needs, we also offer failure path detection (FMEA), risk analysis, and Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) services. Utilizing a comprehensive toolkit, we provide fully automated manufacturing and assembly.
Customized production at scale
Our customers benefit from a global production network with 400 injection molding machines and 40 corresponding assembly lines in Europe, North America, and Asia. Our quality management system (QMS) assures standardized machinery, equipment and material operation that meet all quality standards of the automotive and healthcare industry at all global sites.
Framework for superior products
High-performance material selection
OECHSLER operates a diverse material portfolio to exceed the wide-ranging quality standards of our customers. That includes proven polymer solutions for cost-efficient mass production and the most durable, high-performance polymers that add up to more than 10,000 tons of granules per year. Due to our profound testing approach, we can ensure the best durability and resistance characteristics.
In-House Tool Shop
High-precision polymer parts rely on the accuracy of the tools used in production. Thus, tool design is an integral part of our injection molding excellence. Our skilled in-house tool shop produces more than 100 tools per year. The process includes application engineering and tool design, digital simulation, Rapid Prototyping utilizing Additive Manufacturing and first sample testing, delivering high-precision tools for series production.
Global production network
OECHSLER operates a fully automated polymer injection molding production at five sites in Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific. In addition to customer benefits in terms of cost and flexibility, we minimize our product carbon footprint through local production. At the same time, the sites ensure the highest level of quality throughout the entire production network.
As a turnkey partner, OECHSLER provides profound manufacturing expertise and, therefore, can offer a cross-manufacturing approach that is individually designed depending on product properties and customer needs. That may include a combination of materials or production technologies, for example:
- Polymer Injection Molding
- Particle Foaming
- Hybrid Approach for Metal-Polymer-Combination
- Stamping and wire laying
- In-mold decoration
- Ultrasonic welding
