CANTON, Mich., March 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc. (ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging light-weighting leader and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced today that its Asian molding partner, Chang Rim Eng Inc. ("Chang Rim") has completed its testing and development of a motor casing for an Asian automotive customer. "There were modifications that were made to meet the customer's requirements late last year, consequently we needed to produce new samples, and perform additional testing to complete the validation process," stated Won-Hyun Kwon, Chang Rim's President. "We have fulfilled all the requirements and we expect a significant order."
In addition to its automotive motor casing and enclosure product, Chang Rim has aggressively pursued other shielding applications outside of the automotive industry. To support this effort, Chang Rim is implementing a manufacturing extrusion line for the development of a new extrusion process for applications that are currently under development. "Most of our partners implement ElectriPlast via injection molding, but ElectriPlast can also be extruded. Extrusion provides an opportunity to pursue new applications that are not possible with injection molding," stated Doug Bathauer, Integral's CEO. "In addition to implementing an extrusion line, Chang Rim will be working with various resins, including PET, PVC and PC. We are excited about this direction as we continue to work with Chang Rim in their innovative use of ElectriPlast."
Chang Rim is a specialty molder based in Daegu, South Korea focusing on high margin plastic injection molded products for a variety of industries including automotive, consumer and industrial products.
