The Dopak company – a distributor of machines and devices for plastics processing, present on the Polish market for 25 years, has opened a Research and Development Center in Wrocław. The center provides a wide range of services for the plastics processing sector, which complement the company’s current offer. The aim of Dopak’s research and development activity is to conduct educational projects and technological development of new products and improvement of existing products formed by injection and composite methods.

The Dopak Research and Development Center consists of: a laboratory , a 3D prototyping workshop and a training complex with a wide range of training courses in the programming of injection molding machines and robots, modern technologies, as well as a number of topics devoted to plastics processing.

The training services are dedicated to operators and machine setters, maintenance workers, technologists, process and quality engineers. The theoretical knowledge provided is supplemented with practical classes conducted on automated technological lines and simulators.

“We advise on how to program injection molding machines, optimize the injection process as well as select and set the ideal process parameters. We also enable the production of test and pilot products on advanced automatic lines with clamping forces from 500 to 5500 kN. It is also possible to make a prototype and spare parts in 3D printing technology “ – says Magdalena Kazimierczuk, Quality Director at Dopak.

In the Research and Development Center laboratory , tests of the physical and mechanical properties of plastics and finished products are carried out, enabling the correct development of the production technology and maximizing the efficiency of the process and quality assurance.

The prototype shop produces spare parts and prototypes as well as high-resolution scans used in dimensional quality control and defect analysis.

The machine park of the Dopak Research and Development Center is created seven advanced automatic lines. They include hydraulic and electric injection molding machines manufactured by KraussMaffei with a mold clamping force of 500 to 5500 kN along with linear LRX robots and peripheral devices such as: covers, transporters, drying, feeding and dosing systems, cooling and grinding systems. Technological lines are intended for the processing of standard and high-temperature plastics, such as e.g. PEEK. The largest machine in the GX series is an injection molding machine with a clamping force of 550 tons, working in the MuCell technology – adds Magdalena Kazimierczuk.

The machine park is used for the purposes of training and implementation of technological processes, intended for the production of pilot and test end products for contractors, and also made available to external companies implementing innovative projects as part of start-up programs.
