Lid & base solar water heater


We are looking for a custom-made base and lid for our newly developed solar water heater. Based on industry related guidelines and standards a ‘standard size’ is used most of the time. We want to produce multiple versions based on one base plate (e.g. 2 holes and/or 3 holes in the base plate).

Our advice

This application is ideally suited for rubber pressing technology in combination with laser cutting. Because we can press – the desired versions – using one mould at a time. We opted to apply 3 mould cavities in one mould. This makes it possible to produce 3 lids or bases at the same time.


The industry is known as a real price market. Cost efficient production is therefore not a request, but an absolute necessity. Due to the low tooling costs (1 mould) and the production of multiple versions in 1 series at the same time, there are considerable cost savings in the production process.
