Direct Compounding Injection Molding (DCIM)

Direct Compounding Injection Molding (DCIM)

The DCIM process combines injection molding and compounding in one process. A single-screw extruder takes over the material preparation, which makes the process economically attractive, especially for smaller components with a shot weight of 50 g to 2000 g. Material savings of up to 50 percent per kilogram can thus be achieved.

Your benefits

  • Less energy consumption and reduced CO2 footprint (production in one heat)

  • Material cost savings of 0.30 €/kg to 1.00 €/kg

  • Own recipe sovereignty and thus demand-optimized material selection

  • Processing of recyclates with higher viscosity


  • Easy process configuration and monitoring through integrated extrusion functions in the MC6 control

  • Excellent melting and homogenizing behavior

  • Good intake of poorly flowing materials

  • Integrated degassing zone replaces drying process
