Plasma technology for micro-bonded parts

Plasma technology has been introduced at the ZORGE HOFFMANN group this year. The technology is used at the HOFFMANN site in Germany to provide micro-bonded parts or parts from rubber, metal or plastic with highly accurate and high-quality HOFFPLAS coating. These nano-coatings prevent, among other things, unwanted stick-slip and static frication effects of dynamic applications with rubber parts are reduced. Interested? Please inquire about our options.



Rubber production capacity expanded

ZORGE Hungary recently put four new rubber injection moulding machines into operation to meet the growing demand in rubber moulded parts. The new machines have closing forces up to 4500 kN and are equipped with the latest techniques for automated production of rubber moulded parts: core pulling and brushing systems, middle plate exchangers and air pressure systems for better demoulding of products and faster cleaning of the rubber moulds.



Vision control

„Zero-defect” delivery is a popular request from our customers in the heating industry and automotive industry. In order to meet this requirement even better, ZORGE has automated vision control systems on its LSR injection molding processes.
