About us

Company details

Dieffenbacher is an international group of companies that manufactures hydraulic presses and complete production plants for the wood-based panels industry, the automotive industry and the supplying industry.

As a general contractor and system supplier of turnkey plants, Dieffenbacher offers multiple production procedures for processing fiber-reinforced plastics, covering the entire range of composites in use. These procedures include long-fiber thermoplastic molding, sheet molding compound production and high-pressure resin transfer molding.

For example, Dieffenbacher offers a fully automated turnkey production line—including preform center—using the high-pressure RTM procedure for cost-effective, large-scale production of carbon components. Production lines for hybrid components and plants for the wet molding process complete the product portfolio.

From hydraulic presses and complete automation, to resource-conserving production of the product form via a direct process, Dieffenbacher offers all solutions from a single source.

Dieffenbacher is the market leader in procedures for developing and combining composites. A close working relationship with independent research institutes gives customers access to laboratory capacity for producing samples. Joint research projects can also be implemented.
