GK Concept becomes new engineering partner

Depending on their needs, customers commission us for a wide range of tasks – from tool concept and procurement to the sampling of their prototype and series tools. Now we’re offering you the expertise of our partner GK Concept: Depending on your needs, the engineering expert will take over the entire development process, starting with the tool concept. Simulation systems that cover the entire range of injection molding technologies for thermoplastics and duroplastics are used for optimal tool design. For example, the flow behavior during the filling process and the thermal balance can be predicted. This can be done much more precisely than is possible purely empirically and based on experience. 

Their many years of experience in toolmaking is also an advantage when it comes to designing components that are suitable for plastics and production. Here, too, GK Concept supports our Meraxis customers. You can access the full design service for parts and assemblies. It doesn’t matter if you already have very detailed re­quire­ments, just want to optimize or correct a finished product, or if you only have a rough idea and a catalog of desired features.

“Guaranteeing a design that’s suitable for production and material and that meets all technical re­quire­ments is a matter of course for us,” says Roger Kaufmann, Managing Director of GK Concept (left in picture). “Our goal is also to offer customers cost-optimized manufacturing processes and sustainable designs. This applies to components as well as to tools. Our holistic view of design, materials, machines, tools and technologies is what makes this possible.”

GK Concept mainly serves customers from the automotive sector, but also other plastics processing industries. “Our customers don’t just benefit from the relevant know-how, but also from the innovative spirit of GK Concept,” says Christof Hosner, Head of Investment Goods at Meraxis (right in the picture). The engineering service provider has long been involved in renowned research projects, for example on multi-material lightweight structures together with the Institute for Lightweight Construction and Plastics Technology at the Technical University of Dresden. Other partners include the Institute for Plastics Processing at RWTH Aachen University, the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems, and all German automobile manufacturers.
