The ACPM society is specialized in thermoplastic injection moulding and injection or transfer moulding of thermosets.
Since the 1950’s, we had been producing small and medium-sized series (from some hundred to one million parts) of technical parts mainly for the electrical, aeronautic, electronic, railway, automotive, industrial and connector sectors.
We are also skifull in the overmoulding of (metallic) inserts for electrical and electronic equipment.
A modernization program of the company based on a quality process, a renewal and an expansion of the machinery park has been engaged by the direction.
An Industry 4.0 plan is also being deployed (3D printer, rheology, CAD software, connected machines, metrology, robotization, etc.).
A circular economy approach is also implemented for each new project with the aim of obtaining soon the ISO 14001 certification.
ACPM is the specialist in the transformation of thermosets (Melamine, DAP, Epoxy, Phenolic, Bakelite) and thermoset composites (BMC and SMC) in injection compression and compression transfer. ACPM is a key French actor in these technologies and processes.
ACPM is additionally an expert in thermoplastic injections. ACPM transforms more than fifty different materials. From standard plastics (PP, PE, ABS, POM) to the most technical thermoplastics (PA, PC, PPS, PSU, PEI, PEEK) including a diversity of thermoplastic material says as «composite» (with charge, glass or carbon fiber). Thanks to its expertise, ACPM can also assist you by changing your steel and aluminium parts to thermoplastics (typically for win weight in aeronautic transportation).
We are equally specialized in the transformation of biodegradable and biosource plastics. We are qualified to select the material and carry out tests on prototype tools if necessary. We have conducted numerous trials with our consumers, which has enabled us to develop our know-how and expertise in this sector. Therefore, ACPM is the faithful partner to support you in your projects.

TRANSMISSION OF THE FAMILY BUSINESS AND LAUNCH OF THE CAP INDUSTRIE 4.0
In 1996, the company was given a new impulse. The machines were retrofitted and restored to working condition to obtain a productive machine park. Since 2005, the entire fleet of machines has been renewed in the interests of productivity, safety and working comfort for our employees. The management system has also been strengthened with the integration of an ERP and new management rules for our organisation based on Lean Manufacturing. Our entire machine park has been doubled to increase flexibility and responsiveness to our customers. As production time and quality are indicators for monitoring and scoring with our customers, we had to do everything we could to achieve these goals and support them.
