Development from the idea to its implementation

You have an idea? We can realise it. Together with our partners, our engineers and staff develop your products quickly, flexibly and to the highest quality standards. In order to reach these objectives, our development department places significant value on the use of appropriate plastics to develop your drafts.

Technology, where technology is needed

Knowhow is one thing, technology is another. Our staff – continuously trained and up to date with latest developments – delivers the knowledge, the exceptionally well equipped work stations and laboratories are their tools. The intermeshed combination of these two components has written the success story of SAMAPLAST AG since 1960.

Fast, cost effective, flexible
An idea and development is followed by – from experience – market analysis and functionality tests. In order for you to be able to test your products in the market, we manufacture prototypes and small series for you in a short space of time. Questions regarding colour, shape and surface characteristics? Talk to us and we’ll find solutions together.

Small series in original colour and surface

  • Stereo lithography
  • Selectiv Laser Sintering (SLS)
  • Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
  • 3D printing
  • Vacuum moulding

Small series with original materials

  • Rapid Tolling

Analysed and optimised
Market analysis completed; functionality tests successful? There is nothing which we can’t do better. Using our filling simulation program Moldflow, we can optimise the components of your product and analyse the manufacturing process.

Moldflow calculates in advance

  • filling problems
  • optimum position of the sprue
  • weld lines
  • air pockets
  • warpage etc.


  • Optimisation in the construction of the tool
  • Analyses with Plastic Adviser from Moldflow
  • also available as a service for third parties
