On the subject of "Functional plastic surfaces", IKV will present an overview of applications and their innovative production processes such as injection moulding, thermoforming, extrusion blow moulding and plasma coating. It will showcase a process chain for microstructured surfaces, from mould manufacture to functional testing. Variothermal extrusion compression moulding of microstructured film will be demonstrated live on the extruder.
