Patent der Siegfried Hofmann GmbH

Unique research and innovation: Patents from Siegfried Hofmann GmbH

Striving for ever better solutions to meet our customers’ requirements is an integral part of our corporate philosophy. The goal: to always provide you with optimal products, technologies and services that are unsurpassable in terms of quality.

To make this possible, every year we invest manpower, time and equity in researching new techniques and processes from which you, our customers, can benefit. May it be new manufacturing processes for plastic and particle foam parts, new mold technologies, or new impulses for temperature control equipment – our efforts to make good things even better extend from mold making to mechanical engineering.

For your success: Our patents

This ambition pays off: Since 2019 alone, over 26 new patents from “Hofmann – Ihr Impulsgeber” have come into force. As a result, our customers regularly benefit from novel as well as unique technologies from us. Meaning we can even better fulfill their product requirements or implement previously unrealizable demands.

By applying research results, our customers can additionally optimize the quality of their products. Thanks to our patents, they can integrate features and consumer benefits into their products that were previously impossible to implement. This enables special competitive advantages, as the needs of end customers can be met in unique ways – and in ways that no other competitor can.

The latest technology usually goes hand in hand with solutions that are in higher quality, more effective, more efficient and longer lasting. Therefore, due to our patents, you can also save long-term costs in production. These cost savings can in turn be passed on by our customers to the end user.

All patents of “Hofmann – Ihr Impulsgeber” can be viewed at any time on the website of the German Patent and Trademark Office.

Erteiltes Patent der Siegfried Hofmann GmbH

One machine, many patents: BEAD.MACHINE

Our particle molding machine BEAD.MACHINE combines numerous innovative solutions and impressively demonstrates why patents can give you a competitive edge:

For example, thanks to technology protected by “Hofmann – Ihr Impulsgeber” publication number DE 10 2017 118 960 B4, the BEAD.MACHINE implements even the most filigree details and structures with particle foam: Tiny intricacies and patterns are easily realized thanks to additively manufactured tools. This enables detailed particle foam surfaces in just one manufacturing step – making additional and time-consuming surface treatment such as lasering unnecessary.

Further patents regarding the processing of the particle foam and the filling of an associated mold make the BEAD.MACHINE a particularly resource-saving and economical molding machine, which at the same time shines with unique precision.
