Deckerform-Toyo cooperation: When tool-making and injection moulding come together

Deckerform grabbed the spotlight at Moulding Expo in Stuttgart recently (May 30th-June 2nd 2017) when it formally launched its partnership with Toyo Europe, bringing together an interesting cooperation marrying tool-making and injection moulding.

Deckerform has become a trading partner for the fully electric Toyo injection moulding machines, falling in line with Managing Director Franz Tschacha's mission to expand Deckerform's expertise into pre- and post-production, as well as tool-making.

"We soon realised that our advice was valued – even by end-users in Germany," said Tschacha.

Toyo Europe is located in Brescia, Italy, but the company is headquartered in Japan. In 2007, Toyo began its European expansion opening sales and service centres in Italy, Poland, the Czech Republic, France and Spain, as well as the German-speaking markets.

The most recent expansion of the Deckerform Group, Deckerform Injection GmbH, was able to secure the exclusive distribution rights of the all- electric Toyo machines in Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, and in German-speaking Switzerland. Maintenance, customer service, and commissioning is also provided by the Aichach-based company.

Deckerform's materials specialists at Deckerform are thrilled by the advantages of the all-electric technology of these injection moulding machines. The benefits include: ultra quiet operation through sealed belt drive units, high precision through electric motors, no idle times, and efficient servo motors. This results in up to 50 per cent power savings, resulting in lower operation costs.

Plastic injection moulding production is often geared towards a certain number of parts produced. Both tool-makers and injection moulders are expected to maintain high product availability and stable processes. Machine manufacturers are subject to the same pressures: fully automated processes and efficient production in batches of several hundred thousand and non-stop production are among the basic services offered by Toyo machines.

"Currently, the use of fully electric injection moulding machines is limited to particle-free environments like those required [in the] production of medical- or electro-technical parts, or for the processing of food packaging in Germany and Europe," explained Anna Tschacha, Managing Partner of Deckerform Injection GmbH.

Franz Tschacha and his daughter see themselves as "trailblazers" for fully electric systems such as these.

"We believe in this technology and want to convince the local markets," Anna Tschacha stated. "After all, 94 per cent of Japanese injection moulders now invest in fully electric machines."

Another advantage recognised by both of Deckerform’s managing directors is the spare parts depot maintained by Toyo Europe in Brescia. Located in northern Italy, the city of Brescia delivers machines to all of Europe, and can ship parts anywhere on the continent within 24 hours.

Since Deckerform also hopes to offer its high-tech tools in turnkey production environments, the company preferentially equips the Toyo machines with the automation- and handling-products made by French manufacturer Sepro. To achieve this, both companies signed a cooperation agreement in May of this year.

"The synthesis of Deckerform tools and Toyo machines is extremely reliable," said Anna Tschacha. "Sepro, with its servo motor driven automation systems, complements our system and guarantees the efficient production of parts."

When reductions in cost, efficiency, economic benefits and comparable investment costs are taken into account, the decision to switch from hydraulic to fully electric production is obvious.

"Are you still wasting your energy," Deckerform asks, "or have you started producing plastic parts'
