Innovation and Uniqueness in Injection Moulding and Composite Technology
Svismold is a Swiss company professional in injection molding and composite techniques. The unique combination of traditional injection molding with composite technology is one of the company’s strength. Like so, UD Tape can enhance a products structure immensely. Strenght and flexibility can be pinpointed to the exact areas where it is needed and wanted. The direction of the fibres are what makes this possible.
With svismold technology well known products made out of metal, duroplastics, or aluminum, to name a few, could be improved. They could be translated into lighter, stiffer and well-designed thermoplastic composite solutions. Hence, the svismold thermoplastic composite technology could be a fitting alternative.
For this we use leading development methods and only the best materials on the market. Unidirectional thermoplastic tapes, prepegs and corresponding polymers are such materials. The UD-Tapes are made from glass- carbon- or other fibrers. The exact polymeres and materials used can be individually chosen to perfectly fit the end-product.
Our production is fully automated so we can offer an exceptional fast process. We work with camera-control that checks every single product to ensure a steady kept high quality.
The overall process results in material-and cost efficient ready falling composite products. No past-processing is needed. Like so, products could be done in seconds.
For raw materials, polymeres or composite prepegs we use European sources.
Where to Use Svismold Thermoplastic Composite Technique?
Exact Layering of UD- Tape
The exact layering of the UD-Tape is very precise and effective with svismold’s innovative holding technique.
With vacuum the tape stays in place in the moulds while the polymer is injected. Moreover, there is no need in post-processing. The product is free-falling – there is no overinjection or traces of any clips which are usually used to keep the tape in place. As the polymer is injected the product is finished in seconds.
This results in an exceptionally fast and precise process.

From Idea to Product
Succes Story: H4 Surf Fin
The H4 surf fin is one example that shows how precise the svismold technique is. A surf fin is quite a demanding product.
The flex and stiffness of the material is crucial in the way its behaves in the waves. The surfer wants to be able to move quick, fast and accurate.
The fin is very strong yet flexible exactly where it is needed. Therefore, it can be maneuvred through the waves fast and precise, eventhough the fin is considered large. It is, according to tests and studies, the perfect fin of the highest quality.
