Hagen Engineering GmbH

Development Partner for the plastic industry

The Hagen Engineering GmbH was founded in 2002 as a spin-off out of the R&D department of the Dr. Reinold Hagen Stiftung. Since then we are established as a development partner which offers its customers engineering know-how and competence in plastics. Hagen Engineering GmbH takes charge of all production stages during development of new products – from realization of the idea in a process design to the production of prototypes, moulds and devices. The exclusive access to the technical centre of the Dr. Reinold Hagen Stiftung also enables us to offer material samples and small series for plastic products, especially in the field of blow moulding technology.
There is a close cooperation with the research department of the Dr. Reinold Hagen Stiftung. As a result, we are also able to take up and solve special questions that go beyond an ordinary service. Furthermore, we work closely with proven partners from the higher education sector and industry.

Our services includes:

  • Product development and optimisation
  • Process- and product-simulation
  • Sampling of molds
  • Trials during material developments
  • Test series of new material or products (e.g. biobased raw material)
  • Production of blow moulded articles (small scale series)
  • Support with start of production
  • Process development in collaboration
  • Trainings
