The company Feuerherm was established in the year 1977 by Dipl.-Ing. Harald Feuerherm. On the basis of his invention of a system to influence the wall thickness of plastic hollow bodies around there circumference, Mr. Feuerherm started his own business.
Until today his PWDS/SFDR is the best-selling radial wall thickness system for blow moulded hollow bodies and more than 900 units are used worldwide. The possible savings in cycle time, production costs and material costs make the product PWDS/SFDR and the company Feuerherm attractive for many manufacturers.
Today in almost every field of plastic-blow moulding, a combination of PWDS and SFDR, which can reach an average of 10% saving of material and cycle time, is available due to the consistent development of the well proven systems.
Today the family business Feuerherm, which consists of the engineering office Harald Feuerherm and the company Elke Feuerherm, has 11 employees and is actively working with three generations for innovative solutions for the blow moulding industry.
Experience makes the difference
For more than 30 years the name Feuerherm stands for systems to increase productivity and profitability in extrusion blow moulding. Today PWDS, SFDR and WDLS have become synonyms for optimal wall thickness and safe and profitable production processes in blow moulding.
This, for more than three decades, lasting experience enables us to provide the optimal design of the system in tune with the application as well as the best possible support for the set-up and process optimisation.
For every application the perfect combination of PWDS and SFDR can be put together from currently 10 PWDS versions (patents worldwide until 2019) and 8 SFDR models (patents valid worldwide until 2019). For the production of blow moulded hollow bodies in all levels of difficulties PWDS/SFDR systems are available in a diameter range from Æ80mm up to Æ 675mm. The user can choose the optimal diameter for his application from a fine graded grid of PWDS/SFDR diameters.
Due to continuous development of our proven systems, the company Feuerherm gives the user an adaptable concept to be able to meet the changing requirements of the market.
That PWDS/SFDR-Systems are field-proven and reliable systems for radial wall thickness control is underlined by the fact that depending on the application Feuerherm gives a guarantee of minimum 5 years and up to 10 years on the lifetime of the flexible die ring (DFDR).
Reducing the set up time was a topic for company Feuerherm long before it came into fashion. For almost ten years now SFDR-units with exchangeable inserts (patent pending worldwide till 2019) have permitted a fast adaptation of the core tool to changing requirements (e.g. change of product or material) within minutes.
