DESMA MSI Technology : Multi-Section-Injection technology to enable production of your individualized PU-midsole

DESMA direct soling machinery equipped with state-of-the-art Multi-Section-Injection (MSI) technology allows you to produce PU-midsoles with individualized characteristics. Not only that different characteristic might be represented in one single PU-midsole, but also these different characteristics can be achieved in different sections of this single PU-midsole.

Beyond the basic MSI in combination with the new FitStation platform consumer’s needs, evaluated by analyzing their gait as well as by scanning their feet, are converted into individualized production parameters which then lead to a customized mixing process of PU’s major components Polyol, Isocyanate and distinguished additives. This customized mixing process enabled by a specific configuration of material values along the mixing head and –chamber is adaptable shot-by-shot, resulting in an individualized production of lot size 1 while all benefits from mass production e.g. production speed and cycle time are kept upright. The result is innovative highly comfortable shoes which are supporting the consumer with the extraordinary feeling and a perfect damping.

"We see the chance of using this technology for all kind of footwear like work boots, trekking, military, casual, kids and athletic shoes as well as special performance shoes" states Christian Decker, Managing Director of DESMA. "It is one of the currently best showcases for IoT or Industrial Revolution 4.0 scenarios: a closed loop and full integration between consumer and manufacturing process".
