Thanks to a constant innovation and important investments in R&D of plastics processing, SMP is one of the leaders in high-technology mould domain.

Innovate to combine performance and efficiency

Innovation and market anticipation are a daily concern at SMP.

We invest about 8% of our turnover in the R&D.

Thanks to ultra-modern tooling, offering the best results, we are able to develop technologies combining performance and efficiency.



Liquid Silicone Rubber Project (LSR)Project Acapulco

SMP devotes about 8% of its turnover to R&D

Liquid Silicone Rubber Project (LSR)

  • SMP - Liquid Silicone Rubber Project (LSR)

Since January 2018, we have opened a liquid silicone department (LSR) in parallel with our thermoplastic activity.

Several objectives emerge from this project:

  • Meet customer demands and needs
  • Expand our field of competence
  • Take advantage of our know-how and experience in the area

We are surrounded by choice partners to develop our new activity in the best way possible and to integrate a complete liquid silicone (LSR) unit within our testing facility:

  • For chemistry
    • Wacker, partner of SMPWacker
  • For IMM
    • Sumitomo Demag, partner of SMP Sumitomo DEMAG
  • For pumps
    • Dopag, partner of SMP DOPAG
  • For robots
    • Sepro, partner of SMP SEPRO

Project Acapulco

  • SMP - Project Acapulco
  • The Acapulco project is a research program dedicated to the development of innovative solutions in the field of additive manufacturing

It is a new research program dedicated to the development of innovative solutions in additive manufacturing domain.

The program will focus on the realization of polymer tools through 3d printing, which will then be able to ensure a small volume of injection production series with material required.

The project, carried out by SMP, has an ambition of developing an effective solution for:

  • Reducing the lead time and cost of making prototype tools by creating innovative cavities
  • Producing parts with material required within a very short time
  • Producing very small and medium series
  • Reducing the number and duration of setting up for prototype parts

To develop this technology, the ACAPULCO project focuses on three technical objectives:

  • Optimization of material/process relation for cavity production
  • Cavity design and development by an additive manufacturing method
  • Techno-economical assessment and test runs by conducting tests on IMM
