With the title "Additive manufacturing as a catalyst for technical innovation", Torson Injex CEO Oliver Schlatter took us into the world of additive tooling and how this process has developed over time. New tool combinations for the creation of prototypes, innovation driven by 3D printing and dwarves from the Discworld, these are just a few keywords from this exciting presentation.
Lorenz Camenzind and Peter Joder - the previous business owners of Torson Kunststofftechnik AG, are relinquishing management, but will continue to support the company in an advisory capacity for a while.
"After more than two decades of entrepreneurial success, the time has come to hand over our company - Torson Kunststofftechnik AG - to a new generation," says Lorenz Camenzind.
By the new generation, he means Oliver Schlatter and Tobias Ammann. They are the founders and owners of Injex AG in Schlieren, an ETH Zurich startup. The young company specializes in "additive tooling" - injection molding tools from the 3D printer.
The foundation stone of Injex was laid in 2015 in a prototype workshop at ETH Zurich. Frustration with the limited choice of materials and their properties in 3D printing led to the development of a refined injection molding process.
The ability to quickly create near-series prototypes is of particular interest to companies developing products made of plastics. They can use injection molded prototypes created at short notice and in small quantities, in order to access and thus test production materials at the development stage. This represents a major advantage for many applications in industry.
The merger of the two companies offers a variety of possibilities. The additive mold production of Injex and the agile injection molding system with the small-format Torson injection molding machines make it possible to produce both near-series prototypes and large-scale production of complex plastic parts in a short time. This enables prototype development and series production from a single source.
"We are very excited about this new opportunity and are motivated to steer this tradition-steeped company into the future" - Oliver Schlatter
