    • Thermoforming and vacuum laminating – innovative solutions for low to medium volumes

      Our thermoforming technologies offer a variety of options to help increase efficiency. Both rolled foils and sheet materials can be used to produce decorative trim parts.

      During deep drawing, thermoplastic materials are warmed and contour formed. Vacuum laminating, on the other hand, involves heating a TPO or PVC foil and vacuuming it to the substrate, where it is then glued. IMG (in-mold graining) is possible with both processes, meaning the desired grain of the decor is incorporated into the tool shell and imprinted on the surface during the forming process. Most FRIMO machines are capable of having one or more of these processes integrated.

      Starting in the development phase, we use 3D simulations and visualization technologies to optimize your series process parameters and shorten start-up times. A variety of patented FRIMO concepts help with energy and material savings. Our extensive standard thermoforming machines can also be equipped with many additional features.

        • Single-Station Machines


          FRIMO EcoForm machines are designed as standardized single-station machines for deep drawing and vacuum laminating foils and sheet materials. FRIMO VarioForm thermoforming machines are primarily used in the automotive industry and are ideally suited for forming a wide range of films and sheet materials. Both thermoforming solutions can also be used in the IMG process (In-Mold Graining) to achieve surfaces with a perfect grain.


        • In-Line Machines


          FRIMO VarioForm in-line machines are a perfect fit for economically deep drawing or vacuum laminating. A variety of concepts and models are available to fit every application. No matter which model you choose, cycle times for producing premium decorative trim parts for automotive interiors can be greatly reduced. Decorative surfaces for automotive interiors are a typical example. We have been continuously developing our machine concepts for decades at FRIMO.


        • Efficient production of perfectly grained surfaces

          A high-quality look and feel, along with innovative technology, play a big role in in today's automotive interior design. It can be challenging to use traditional thermoforming processes when trying to minimize grain stretch, maintain grain harmony between parts, and incorporate airbag logos, decorative stitching and different grain areas on a single part. During in-mold graining (IMG), the grain is first created on the foil during the deep drawing or vacuum laminating process.

        • 3D Thermoforming Simulation

        • Perfect preparation and optimal production with FRIMO 3D thermoforming simulation

          We offer support as early as the product development stage to help you achieve optimal thermoforming results in series production. With our 3D thermoforming simulation, you receive reliable predictions on feasibility, the optimal tool layout, foil usage, and attainable quality. Simulations are done primarily on thermoplastic compact or foam foils, mainly focusing on foil thickness, stretching, or wrinkling. Sheet materials up to 5 mm thick can also be simulated.

        • Time Shifted Heat Control

        • Efficient thermoforming with FRIMO Time Shifted Heat Control (TSHC)

          The goal of the heating process during thermoforming is to heat the foils as quickly as possible, both in defined areas and across the entire surface. FRIMO has developed a new foil heating process specifically for this reason, called Time Shifted Heat Control (TSHC). The key is a specially-developed calculation algorithm, which switches the emitters on at the right time, taking overlap and peripherals into account.

          A new heating concept for thermoforming
          • Foil temperature calculations take emitter layouts into account
          • Automatic calculation of clamp frame geometry's influence
          • Heating picture can be changed for each cycle
          • Absolute temperature values entered in the display
          • Automatic calibration cycle to identify foil's thermal properties


      • Flexible Trimming

      • Flexibly trimmed with the utmost precision

        Precise cuts play an important role in the final quality of premium plastic components. Different geometries, materials, material combinations, and project requirements, such as volumes and the production environment, result in many unique project definitions. Our robot-assisted FlexTrim technologies guarantee the best solution to suit your needs.

        Both simple and complex cuts can be precisely achieved, over and over again. We provide support right from the start, throughout engineering, prototyping, and the production of your tooling and equipment.

            • Maximum repeatability and process reliability
            • Continuous process monitoring
            • Quality guaranteed by integrated sensors and camera monitoring system



          • Ultrasonic Cutting


            During ultrasonic cutting, a frequency generator causes a very specialized blade to vibrate. The blade makes thousands of cutting strokes per second, controlled by the frequency set on the generator (usually 20-40 kHz). The blade and frequency are matched to your project requirements to help you achieve the best possible cuts.

            This process is characterized by how clean, quick, and versatile it is. Maintenance is almost completely eliminated. Combining the advantages of ultrasonic technology with our robust, reliable machine technology is an interesting option for many applications. Interior and exterior automotive parts, packaging materials, and composite materials can all be processed efficiently.

          • Milling


            With FRIMO FlexTrim Milling Machines, we offer custom solutions for a variety of cutting applications. Our milling technology is especially well-suited for processing complex part geometries with defined cutting/milling depths. Many customers also use our machines to supplement the punching process or to produce low-volume part variations. We offer not only proven machine technology, but also sophisticated production concepts, even for high-volume projects.

            Sophisticated fixture concepts are the heart of our machines. The better the fixture fits your project, the more efficient your serial production will be. Debris is a process-related issue for which we offer solutions unique to the market. We even have flexible solutions for waste removal and transport.


          • Surface Treatment

          • Perfectly prepared with FRIMO surface treatment

            Robot-assisted systems are our specialty. Surfaces are, too. That's why we offer robot-based solutions not only for flexible trimming, but also for surface treatment. FRIMO flame and plasma treatment machines specifically prepare plastic substrates for the subsequent process. The robot-assisted surface treatment occurs through either flaming or plasma technology.

            The treatments increase the surface tension of the parts to ensure optimal adhesion of foams, coatings, or lamination applied afterwards, resulting in impeccable quality and permanent bonds. Areas of the substrate that should not bond can be shielded from the gas flame treatment.

          • Deburring


            In the plastics sector, there are a number of diverse components that have to be deburred in certain areas. In close cooperation with Schunk, FRIMO has developed a standardized, flexible deburring cell. Here, the protrusion is milled off with a special deburring spindle or precisely deburred by an ultrasonic blade. The cell is equipped with a T-slot table on which the component to be processed or further processing stations can be fixed.

            In the example application, the robot guides an air-driven deburring spindle, which is mounted in such a way that the transverse force on the milling tool can also be adjusted via compressed air. This ensures a certain tolerance compensation during deburring. The work tasks for the cobot (collaborative robot), which is also mounted on the slot table, can be programmed by simple manual guiding.

        • Press Laminating

        • Unique design details make surfaces stand out. The designs of our press lamination solutions are just as unique as the materials and requirements in your project, and they provide maximum material savings and efficiency. This is achieved through the FRIMO Accurate Blank Laminating (FABL®) process, by processing optimized contour-cut blanks, including the edge fold, within one machine.
            • Leather Lamination

            • Leather laminating is found mainly in the automotive industry. High quality vehicle interiors are characterized by a sophisticated design made of perfectly processed and adapted materials. Leather surfaces are no longer exclusively reserved for premium vehicles; they are also becoming increasingly used in high volume and mid-priced vehicle interiors.

              As a natural material, leather presents tough processing challenges. Processing delicate materials, like leather, efficiently and with repeatable quality requires special know-how. The individual processes – surface treatment, adhesive application, and the actual leather lamination – must be precisely coordinated.

            • Robot Cells

            • The success of our robot cells stems from creating clever combinations for fast production. These combinations are a more efficient alternative to having multiple machines for medium to high volume armrest, door upper, bolster insert, and instrument panel production. "All in One" means combining pre-fixing, hotmelt adhesive application, and the subsequent press laminating/edge folding process in a single production unit.

              By combining these individual steps, and handling parts for adhesive application with robotic support, resources are reduced in multiple areas. Less space and fewer operators are required. The result: attractive soft-touch surfaces made of leather, artificial leather, textiles, or films with polyurethane foam or spacer materials. Plus, all production parameters are permanently recorded, making the process incredibly reliable.

            • FRIMO Accurate Blank Laminating/FABL®

            • Processing exact contour-cut blanks with FABL® It is simply not possible to save more material during press laminating than with FABL®. This advanced press laminating technology can process exact contour-cut blanks made of TPO/PVC sheets, textiles, or artificial leather.

              These are then positioned, laminated to the substrate, and edge folded all in one step. FABL® reduces material waste and increases production efficiency for premium surfaces in a flexible, sustainable process.

            • Groove Laminating


              FRIMO Groove laminating allows you to use different decor variations on a single substrate. It is most commonly utilized on
              doors in automotive interiors.

              There is only one condition: the substrate must have a groove to tuck the edges of the decor into. During the process, a blade tucks the edges of the decor into the substrate's groove, where it is secured with adhesive.


              • Cost-effective product enhancement
              • Fast, material-saving, combined process
              • Joining processes not required
              • High structural stability, yet lightweight
              • Excellent crash behavior


            • Product Based Solutions


              Press lamination solutions are quickly gaining importance in the automotive industry compared to classic vacuum lamination. With autonomous vehicles, interiors in particular will undergo a complete redesign. New materials and functions also bring new challenges for volumes and technical requirements. Customization will become even more popular.

              Our customers need tooling, equipment, and processes that can variably and cost-effectively process as many different surfaces as possible. The need for product-specific solutions is growing to make part production optimal for functionality, quality, reliability, and efficiency.

                  • NFPP TECHNOLOGY

                  • Natural fiber (NF) and polypropylene (PP) composites

                    Natural fibers are so attractive for industrial use because of their good mechanical properties, such as rigidity and stability, and combine good insulation properties with lower densities. If there were a formula for success for sustainable lightweight construction, it would be based on combining natural fibers with polypropylene. The composite material NFPP is popular in the automotive industry, particularly for the production of interior paneling, not only because it is lightweight, but also because it is well-suited for many process combinations.

                    Through our NFPP Hybrid technology, we combine forming, trimming, and back injection, which allows functional elements to be integrated. With our NFPP OneShot technology, we combine multiple processes, such as forming, laminating, and trimming.

                  • ORGANO SHEET INJECTION

                  • Strength in every fiber

                    Organo sheets are high-performance, semi-finished materials with carbon, glass, or aramid fiber fabrics embedded in a thermoplastic matrix. Our fully-developed Organo Sheet Injection process (OSI) features short cycle times for thermoplastic structural components that are not only considerably lighter, but that can also include many functions.

                    Additional functional elements can be integrated with back injection, including mounting eyes, weld domes/ribs, or targeted reinforcements, and the edges of the part can be perfected. The costs of handling and storage are significantly reduced through combining the processes in one step.

                    • FRIMO OSI PRODUCTS
                  • PREFORMING & RTM


                    RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) processes offer the best conditions for producing extremely efficient and resilient structural components with maximum potential for weight savings. Fiber fabric preforms are placed in the tool and the closed tool is injected with a reactive resin system under high pressure. The various matrix materials, such as epoxy or polyurethane-based materials, each create specific process requirements.

                    We provide feedback to help to optimize production of your part and supply not only tailor-made tooling and equipment, but also complete production solutions. Our focus is on continuing to develop the RTM process and the production process for fiber composites in high volumes. The fastest injection process possible and short amount of time the part spends in the tool contribute to shorter cycle times. The composition of the preform also has a significant influence on the mechanical properties of the part.

                  • WET COMPRESSION MOLDING

                  • Minimized cycle times, maximum performance

                    FRIMO Wet Compression Molding (WCM) machines are fully automated and capable of producing both monolithic or sandwich-style fiber-reinforced structural automotive components. The WCM process allows the use of fast cure resin systems and therefore offers significant cost and cycle time advantages over RTM processes.

                    Compared to RTM, the pressures used for forming are much lower, allowing for integration of lightweight sandwich cores (e.g. pre-milled paper honeycomb), complex 3D PU foam cores, or pre-assembled PET foam pieces. FRIMO offers not only tailored tool and pressing technology, but also custom solutions for automated manufacturing of sandwich cores.

                • Our customers associate us with high quality, making us a strong partner when it comes to perfect material bonds. We will help you find the right welding or riveting method or combination of methods for your material combinations, part geometries, and volume requirements.

                  Joining applications are becoming more complex and diverse, and quality requirements are increasing. Different processes are used depending on the application area and the material combination, part geometry, and volume requirements.

                  Considering weldability during the design stage creates advantages later on. This is because the only way to compensate for tolerances and guarantee reliable welds is with perfectly designed weld-seam geometries. Our special FRIMO controls technology also plays a considerable role in the efficiency of the processes.

                    • INFRARED WELDING

                    • The strongest bonds for large plastic parts with 3D weld contours

                      Thermoplastics can be welded together using INFRARED radiation. Some of the radiation in infrared welding is absorbed by the material and transformed into heat. As a result, the surface layer is melted and the plastic components can be joined by being pressed together. Infrared heat is transferred without contact. The heat input is fast, specific and energy-efficient.

                      Power-controlled and time-controlled INFRARED emitters allow for precise and controlled welding processes. Typical applications are instrument panels, door trims and center consoles with complex, 2D or 3D welding contours. Particle-free welding is particularly used for joining air-duct pipes, fluid containers, tank systems and filters or filter housings.

                    • HOT PLATE WELDING

                    • FRIMO JoinLine Tooling & Equipment

                      The FRIMO machine portfolio for hot plate welding is comprised of various sized standard machines for welding parts of different sizes. Common applications in the automotive industry include glove boxes and center consoles. During hot plate welding, the plastic parts are welded using radiant heat and contact with an electric hot plate. Despite involving contact, this is a particle-free process that allows very strong and completely tight welds to be created for a number of different plastics.

                      Even thin-walled parts with complex 3D contours can be processed reliably with this well-established, robust process. Modern tool change systems, sophisticated drive technology, and the appropriate degree of automation increase productivity and make this fully developed process attractive for a number of industries and applications.

                    • ULTRASONIC WELDING

                    • High-quality and technologically perfected plastic joining process

                      During ultrasonic welding of thermoplastics, the two surfaces to be joined together are melted by converting sound energy into heat under pressure. The welding geometry plays a key role in the sound wave conversion. During ultrasonic welding, sound vibration travels through a sonotrode to the joining surface. This sound energy is then transformed into heat in a targeted area to melt the surface. Process and spaceoptimized FRIMO ultrasonic welding units take up minimal floorspace and fit in the tightest, most compact spaces. The cold air supply in the guide rods ensures the outer surfaces of the actuators remain "clean" and that the cold air precisely reaches the sonotrodes. Ultrasonic riveting is used to bond materials using thermoplastic rivet domes (PP, PA 6, ABS, POM, etc.) onto other materials, such as plastics or metals.

                    • HEAT STAKE RIVETING

                    • Joining plastics and sheet metal

                      When individual components need to be assembled on a larger module, riveting processes are used. During heat stake riveting, thermoplastics are melted at the contact point with a heated staking unit. They are then formed and pressed together under pressure. Once the power is off, cool air is used to cool the plastic. This process is well-suited for sheet metal and plastic combinations and is therefore great for a variety of applications with a mix of materials.

                      Springloaded staking units allow for different heights of riveting points in processes with different materials. Space and process-optimized FRIMO heat stake riveting machines are extremely compact. They can be installed in the tightest spaces and give you the advantage of efficiency. Along with the standard machine, project-specific production layouts can be created, as well as combined and special solutions.

                    • FLEXLINE TECHNOLOGY

                    • Robotic Joining. Flexible and efficient

                      Our FlexCell and FlexLine concepts offer maximum flexibility with customized automation. FRIMO provides custom production solutions that take all requirements into account for smooth production, including challenging specifications, floorspace limitations, or unique layouts. Integration of technologies and functions as well as automation are the key to success. To ensure maximum availability at all times in interlinked production lines, even in the event of minor malfunctions, optional buffer areas can be integrated.

                      An optional modular design allows flexibility in every respect and, if required, even offers the possibility of removing individual modules from the production line and operating them autonomously. The modular design also makes it possible to relocate complex and interlinked production lines with minimal effort.
