Injection Moulding

Using advanced injection moulding technologies, SMP produces medium and large sized high-precision plastic parts.


Slush Moulding

Slush moulding is used for producing high-quality thermoplastic-moulded skins with superior surface appearance, including bi-coloured skins. Slush skins are typically characterized by soft touch and optionally by leather-like surface patterns.


Natural fibre processing

This is a new single-stage process for the press-moulding of natural fibre needlefelt mats for light-weight door panels, inserts, armrests and trunk trims.


Thermoforming and​In-mould graining (IMG)

Male mould vacuum preforming of TPO/TPO2- films for back-foaming and back-moulding process. Female mould preforming and graining of TPO films (IMG) in Galvano or etched steel shells.


Decorative surfaces

As car makers continuously offer more innovative interiors, SMP develops state-of the art solutions to support this development, from new coatings to laminating and foaming.
