New: Reel-to-reel technology for Pollmann North America

(09/29/2012)
Component production using metal/plastics composite technology has become an integral part of the automotive industry. Reel-to-reel technology makes it possible to produce these punched and bent parts cost-effectively in large quantities using partial remolding. 

Pollmann North America in  Romeoville near Chicago currently uses reel-to-reel molding for producing two complex metal/plastics composite parts:

  • Housing for throttle control
  • Coil former

The lead frames are inserted into a vertical pre-remolding unit, and the component elements are subsequently formed on the reel with a punching and bending tool. A major advantage is the fact that all process steps can be performed in one unit and no temporary storage in space-consuming trays is necessary.
