Development Engineering

From the roots to the fruits

From the component idea, to mould development, up to the finished product.

More than 25 years of experience, expert workmanship, comprehensive process know-how and continuous R&D enable tailored plastic-solutions that are designed to optimize total costs and push the limits of what is possible. Competent and highly motivated personnel accompany our customers at every step their project. Feed-back from hundreds of references and a continually growing information database is the basis for providing our partners with the right solution for their specific requirements. Thanks to the close cooperation and permanent know-how exchange with customers, universities (Johannes Kepler Universität Linz, Montanuniversität Leoben), and R&D institutes (Johanneum Graz, Fotec), the latest plastics innovations and technical improvements are integrated into Schöfer’s mould-injection solutions. Furthermore, as members of the LEONHARD KURZ Gruppe, we can offer our customers construction components and mould solutions for products with high-quality decorated surfaces or also functionalized layers from a single source. Due to the close proximity of Schöfer to its customers located primarily at central European sites, project results and customer feedback are immediately available. Our engineers pay close attention to permanent differences between theoretical and practical results, are thus able to respond promptly should expectations change or are not fully met. Our goal is ensure that all technical performance demands are met and to maintain our reputation as a reliable, flexible and committed partner.
