Smart Mold is a spin-off born in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Padua, created by Giovanni Lucchetta, Marco Sorgato and Davide Masato in which Sirmax entered with 50 percent through a capital increase. The multinational group specializing in the production of thermoplastic compounds invested in 2020 in our university spin-off that transforms plastic coming from recycling into hi-tech material. Our engineering company was born in 2018 in the spaces of the T2i incubator in Rovigo and works on the one hand on molds and their improvement, increasing the processing and technical characteristics of plastic from recycling, and on the other hand on the study of end products that reduce the amount of plastic used in a mold. In fact, our spin-off has patented a special surface treatment of the molds used to inject the plastic material that allows the mold to be filled more easily and has also made a patent for the use of post-consumer plastic.
