Foaming molds for car seats
Precision and reliability
Invented in 1930 by professor Otto Bayer as a substitute for rubber, polyurethane has been of great help for the automotive industry, which has benefitted from it by producing a resistant, lightweight and long-lasting alternative material.
Nowadays, there is an endless choice when it comes to plastic materials, but none of them offer the same degree of flexibility and range of application as Polyurethane, which is employed in most products we use on a daily basis.
The polyurethane foaming process is quite straightforward: Liquid polyurethane is poured in an open cast which is then closed for the material to set, expand, and fill the desired mould shape.
Our molding process allows for manufacturing from either aluminum block or forged casting.
In both cases, top-tier precision is what makes our molds stand out.
Our quality products are well-known to our long-time customers; Our fusion molds are a perfect example considering the first-rate material used and high degree precision for foaming tool duplicates.
For these reasons our foaming seat molds are perfect for the automotive and rail industries.
As further proof of our commitment, every single mold that comes out of our factory comes with a 3D dimensional report, perfectly compliant with all the tolerances requested.
Additionally, we work with a special focus on proto tools, which usually require a lower lead time that we can achieve thanks to our double-decade long experience in this sector.
As of today, we have a portfolio of more than a thousand foaming molds manufactured.
NON DESTRUCTIVE TESTING
On each mould made Elledi implements NDT: a set of analysis and testing techniques that allow to check the internal structure, integrity, welding defects and surface cracks of a product.
Thanks to the use of ATOS Core, a high resolution 3D optometric scanner, we scan and inspect all molds ensuring their compliance with the project specifications.
High quality welding is performed by our skilled and experienced operators.
Should the project require it, thermal treatment is carried out by our external partners.
The CNC-worked surfaces are flattened and refined through manual polishing.
