MATRIX - MARKET LEADER FOR MOLD CLAMPING SYSTEMS

THE IDEA WITH THE PIN CUSHION

Since it was founded in 1997, MATRIX GmbH has been a developer or mold clamping systems. The idea of developing clamping jaws based on the pin cushion principle was the first step towards a true innovation.

INITIALLY SUCCESSFUL IN INDUSTRIAL METROLOGY

Following a development time of just 11 months to the first prototype and patenting, the company initially focused on the field of metrology and acquired a number of prestigious customers.

THE MODULAR SYSTEM IS BORN

The MATRIX clamping systems went into series production in 1999. Various modules with differently-sized pin fields, for example, as well as additional modules relevant in measuring technology for the improved securing of complex components are introduced into the MATRIX GmbH portfolio. As a result, the first module, which included height and angle elements, as well as blank holders, cone and prism supports, was produced in 2000. With the aid of the modular system, relationships with customers were extended across the entire globe. New target groups were acquired, since the sets were constantly being adapted to the needs of customers and their applications.

CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS

The realization of customers' specialist wishes led to special developments in the X-SHIFT series (support of large-surface parts in measuring technology) and the X-TABLE series (height and inclination-adjustable trolley adapted to the mold clamping system) in 2004 and 2005.

CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT OF A SIMPLE IDEA

Over the years that followed, the X-CLAMP series was developed. This allowed differently-shaped parts and parts with complex molds to be clamped and processed.
Since 2005, the company has been based in Ostfildern-Nellingen, near Stuttgart in Germany.
These are the pledges for the future of MATRIX GmbH: plain, modern design, modularity combined with straightforward handling, low wear, always keen to listen to customers' requests and offer a high level of service.
