White Papers

Complex issues prevalent in the Plastics Industry and their innovative solutions along with the ideology behind them are eloquently explained through our White Papers section. These are accessible to anyone and everyone who visits our portal.


Ihne & Tesch GmbH
The application of Heat-Cool-Combinations will result in rapid and effective heating and cooling coupled with energy-efficiency. Conventional systems such as HKK (ceramic) or HKC (ceramic with copper cooling fins) give fast heat-up times but without uniform temperature distribution along the heated area as achieved by the HAK system.

Design Considerations for the Cosmetics of    Injection-Molded Plastic Parts

Many factors affect the cosmetic appearance of injection-molded plastic parts. Some of these are within the control of the part designer, and some are not. In this white paper we describe several of the factors affecting cosmetic appearance, the interactions between those factors, and steps the designer can take to improve final appearance.


The majority of today’s consumer products — and many commercial ones — are composed of thermoplastics. When designing a new product, engineers can best predict its end performance by prototyping with a material as similar to it as possible. That’s why 3D printing with thermoplastics is so widely practiced. Using Fused Deposition…

PRECISION PROTOTYPING: The role of 3D printed       molds in the injection            molding industry

Injection molding (IM) — the process of injecting plastic material into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity — is best used to mass-produce highly accurate, and often complex, three dimensional (3D) end-use parts and products. However, the development of molds for this process is…
