Our machinery is state-of-the-art
At its 3 production centers in Obertshausen, Sulzbach and Idar-Oberstein, LMS has a comprehensive machine park with 53 state-of-the-art injection molding machines. These have a clamping force of 320 t up to 4000 t. This allows us to produce molded parts weighing up to 9 kilograms!
All our molded parts have a consistently high-quality surface finish. They can be painted, chromed or assembled directly on site. On request, we can also supply our customers directly with grained mold-in-color (MIC) or high-gloss components.
In production, we use the latest technologies and control systems. These include, for example, state-of-the-art Flexflow hot runner controls, cooling systems and automation.
In addition to regular injection molding, we use Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) and Reinforced Reaction Injection Molding (RRIM). These processes enable high component complexity combined with high stability and quality.
The customer in mind: flexible design and production
To achieve the highest flexibility in design and production, we can combine up to 6 different raw materials. Our customers always benefit from the comprehensive range of services offered by LMS: And that ranges from design and production to readiness for series production.
We offer a broad product portfolio: The range of components extends from license plate carriers, door protection strips and spoilers to radiator grilles, roof cladding and bumper cladding for the front and rear. Using the injection compression molding process, we produce warp-free, thick-walled molded parts without sink marks and markings – from which flat molded parts such as plastic roofs are created with little effort.
An additional plus of our production facilities: On request, we use the “mold-in-color” process or even produce composites with integrated metal inserts such as mounting support systems – depending on what our customers need.
High quality standards fulfill high requirements
LMS is a certified automotive supplier and thus meets the highest requirements. Therefore, we attach great importance to our quality standards. Among other things, we use self-developed programs that proactively contribute to error prevention.
In this way, we are continuously engaged in optimizing our processes. In order to easily track parts, we equip them with an RFID chip, for example. In addition, thanks to paperless labeling using inkjet printing technology, we can label parts quickly and in an environmentally friendly manner.
Innovative technologies enable innovative processes
With the help of innovative technologies, LMS is always engaged in optimizing its processes. It is important to us to guarantee a smooth process at all times. To this end, we rely, among other things, on an in-house tool shop and a rapid tool opener. In this way, not only can regular maintenance be carried out effectively. We can also repair our injection molds around the clock without delay. This is because state-of-the-art laser welding technology makes it easy to handle repairs or mold changes immediately.
The high flexibility of our production is guaranteed, inter alia, by the individually coordinated and automated component removal, flaming, trimming and fast labeling. We round off these innovative processes with our in-house programming and our own gripper construction.
