Thin wall EPP items vis-à-vis injection moulding items
During the past few months, in cooperation with raw material manufacturer, we have developed successful in our in-house TEC-center the serial capability of thin wall EPP items. Items with wall thickness off 2 mm about plan and vertical fins could be realize without issues. Also manageable is a wall thickness change from thin too thick without default and sink mark. The complete process technology of filling and foaming were integrated in an automatically manufacturing process. Therefore the complete controlling of the machine was incurred from MIC probe sensors. Explicitly for these field of application new filling systems and new MIC-mini-beads-injectors would be developed. The path to manufacture thin wall items in the EPP area is established and new market segments in the field of EPP processing can be opened up.
Together we start into the future....
At the end of 2017, the two companies RTI Sports GmbH, 56070 Koblenz and T. Michel Formenbau GmbH & Co. KG decided to establish a joint venture. The company is called Schumpeter GmbH and is jointly managed by Franc Arnold (RTI) and Thorsten Michel
(T. Michel Formenbau).
In order to considerably shorten the implementation of the development goals, the two companies decided to merge the scientific and technical side. RTI places its main characteristic on the scientific side, which T. Michel Formenbau complements - with its machine equipment and the newly built technology centre - the technical side of this project.
The first joint project has started successfully... an ergonomic bicycle saddle!
All in one beer!
Our own innovative beer table - a continuous production concept from
T. Michel Formenbau.
Following the idea and design of the EPP beer table, the mould was designed and manufactured in-house. Afterwards, with the help of our latest laser texturing machine, we introduced the self-developed beer glass texture. The finished beer table mould has been sampled and is now also used as a test mould in our own pilot plant.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018!

With the completion of our technology centre, we are now actively supporting you with your samples and R&D projects.
Using digitally controlled media circuits, we can change the media connections to different cross-sections in order to simulate all common machine types. In addition, with the help of 60 measuring sensors an exact process data acquisition with subsequent automated evaluation is possible.
Among the various test moulds there is a plate mould and a box mould with fully equipped measuring sensors. This enables a large number of process evaluations to identify the optimum product properties scientifically. The constantly growing number of adaption frames for common machine sizes enables us to carry out sampling and testing of your own moulds.
We are looking forward to your enquiries and will be happy to help you.

Kurtz Ersa internal exhibition
16 + 17 November 2017, Kreuzwertheim-Wiebelbach
At Kurtz GmbH we present our new mould technology - M-Tec - a low-energy solution for foam production. We will also show you the production of moulded parts with laser textured surfaces as part of an original beer table. Let yourself be surprised by our new innovations !
We are looking forward to your visit at Kurtz GmbH
Expansion of our machine park
Since the end of 2017, we have been using a new CNC machining centre for machining large-format sheets. With a displacement length of 4050x2050mm, we can now easily process panels in a size of 4000x2000 mm. thanks to a new plate storage system and an automatic vacuum closing system, this machine is another technical highlight at T. Michel Formenbau.
We form -
your future at T. Michel Formenbau GmbH & Co. KG
As of August 1, 2017 3 apprentices began their apprenticeship in the machinist-cutter-cutter and industrial mechanic trades in our company.
Our training managers train the trainees on modern apprenticeship machines in a newly equipped training workshop. This training space is a separate professional centre in which trainees prepare their own projects for our final production during their 3.5 year training. We want to be forward-looking and give them a good start in their careers through training within our company.

International trade fair for plastics processing
17 - 21 October 2017, Friedrichshafen
Visit us at the 25th session of the Fakuma trade fair - on the stand of
Krallmann Group Hall A7 - Stand 7508 and learn more about our new process and development of M-Tec moulds for particle foams and composite parts.
The last step...
With the installation of the machine and its accessories, the last steps are reached. From September, we will be able to start managing the first projects of our customers and partners in our new technology center.
We look forward to your innovative projects and a good cooperation with you.
For planning and meeting requests please contact us at: 0049 (0) 6772-96 94 00
The extension of the new hall including foundation work and bottom plate with an area of 300 m² of the new technology center was built in a recordtime of 10 weeks.
The building is expected to be operational in September 1, 2017, thus enabling the development of new plastic materials but also all the technology for the optimization of production. To Reach this target we will have high Tech equipment like, for example, new EPP machine with a 1700 x 1500 mm molding surface area equipped with the latest sensors for pressure, cycle time, temperature and energy technologies measurements to analyze them, and reach the perfects settings. In the future, we will be able to carry out in this technical center a particle foam injection molding as well as PUR foams in this pilot plant.
Should you now plan offers regarding development or tests/sampling, please do not hesitate to contact us! We will keep you informed...

DIGITALMACROSCOPE FOR 3D-MEASUREMENTS
With the purchase of a digital macroscope for 3D-measurements we can repeatable remeasure the texture in µ-range – so we can digitize the individual texture desire or we can check the surface quality of the existing textures.
The precise implementation offers you an optimal solution for a fast realization your texture desire. In just a few steps, we create an applicable digital image from your texture sample. Subsequently this texture can be lasered into your mould.
