Equipped with CAD PRO ENGINER stations, our R&D team meets the customers’ needs: from the simple integration of draft to the complete conception of the product. We also adapt the automated process according to the desired production volume. More informations
For the development of the « Ocean Sound Device », Pierre Lavagne wanted to give a sophisticated aspect to this plastic object which is inspired by conchs used by the Tibetan monks. Since 2008, this Shelltone has allowed Pierre Lavagne and the other members of the Shelltone Whale More informations
Our innovative concept protected by a European patent, makes possible to get an exceptional 1 to 5 stacking ratio. Thanks to this ratio, the Empilis handling crate respects the environment, indeed the number of return journeys are decreased by 30% that means less CO2 emissions. More informations
In 2006, we have developed an automated unit on our 800 tons injection press for bonding and assembling as well as for insert positioning: on this example by putting together the two PPC bodies, we save more than 25% in productivity! More informations
The YAG laser source enables a precise marking on a great number of resins and colours. As the marking is made deeply in the material, the technology fits perfectly to the fields of traceability and authentication. More informations

Laser Marking

Since 2007, we have been equipped with a TRUMPF VMC1 ( Nd:YAG) marking/coding laser for plastic parts (maximal marking size: 120x120mm).
This laser technology which meets the highest quality requirements is designed for four different types of applications:

  • Discoloration marking:
    The laser beam interacts with pigments previously added to the masterbatch. The colour of these pigments will change, turning most of the time black or grey. This phenomenon allows to mark easily readable and indelible data.

  • Ablation marking process:
    This type of marking refers to the evaporation removal of a topcoat (generally painted) which covers the part to be marked. Revealing portions of bare parts (translucent or of a different colour from the topcoat) allows to create a contrast
    Most common application: to locate control buttons regardless of the light intensity outdoors.

  • Laser engraving:
    This technique is useful for non-pigmented plastics. It allows a deeper marking following the melting or the evaporation of a portion of the material through beam intensity. 

  • Laser coding :
    The requirements related to the products traceability and/or authentication requires more and more data coding (batch numbers, barcodes, datamatrix, etc.). The laser solution offers many advantages such as low prices, high throughput, reliability, capability, etc. not to mention the huge amount of coded data and the multiplicity of plastic materials that may be used.
