Biodegradable materials, weight reduction of plastic components, “tethered” closures to contain the potential plastic leakage in the environment.
GEFIT is trying to play its part at a crucial time for the sector, with a great deal of support work for all processing companies in a time that will lead to an inevitable change in the market.
As usual, the Alessandria-based company is close to its customers and can provide turnkey packages, thanks to a wide range of specific technical skills in the design and construction of moulds, assembly machines and vision cells for quality control. GEFIT supports its partners right from the component development phase, with a clear and single target: to optimise and make the moulding cycle as smooth and linear as possible.
The new frontier, however, is represented by alternative materials and bioplastics, to make components more compatible with the environment and, at the same time, boost the sector. The future is just around the corner, but the introduction of new resins into the production process goes hand in hand with the need for in-depth studies in the field of injection moulding design.
For this reason, has GEFIT been working for some time now to research and test increasingly high-performance steels and heat and surface treatments suitable for the use of new plastics derived from sources alternative to traditional polymers. The activity is already at a pretty good stage and the first important results are now at sight.
