Rouxel SA founded by Claude Rouxel in St Chéron in the Paris region
First milling passes
The company expands to new industrial premises. The company begins manufacturing moulds for engineered parts, in particular for the car industry
We enter the packaging sector
The first moulds for high volume production are manufactured
Creation of a test centre with 2 powerful injection machinemade by NETSTAL. This is our first venture into high speed manufacture.
1981At the cutting edge of technology. The first moulds for high volume production are manufactured
- Stack mould
For manufacturing hinged containers
- Unscrewing mould
For manufacturing caps
- hot runners’ Rouxel
It is the first system designed and manufactured in-house. It is integrated into the moulds in order to maintain the temperature up to the point of injection.
1985The company expands
And so does its product range
- Healthcare packaging
Incorporation of CAD/CAM design
First Packaging Trade Fair
First automatic closure systems in the mould
Following injection of the part, the mould allows the cap to be closed automatically on the base in the mould, avoiding manual reworking on the part of the client.
- Double closure on a hinged cap
- Double flap closure on a flip top cap
1990In-mould labelling (IML)
As a specialist in moulds for packaging, we are among the first to master this technology in Europe.
1993Filing of a patent for the design of a product
This is a hinged container. The manufacturing process makes it possible to attach an IML at the same time. Rouxel is responsible for the design and manufacture of the robot.
1994The number of cavities increases
- 24-cavity mould for flip top caps with an automatic closure system designed by our teams
- 48-cavity mould for oil bottles
As an example, the mould for a bi-material lid with an external elastomer edging is both aesthetically pleasing and has a soft touch. The internal seal is injected at the same time as the external edging.
2001Investment in new technology, a long-standing strategy
- Automated HSM with palletisation
Faster and more accurate machining for continuous manufacture
- 5-axis milling machine
An extra axis for product variation
Our informatics evolves and the test centre increases its capability
The development and installation of ERP represents a giant leap forward for the company in the industrialisation of production methods.
A new plant opens in Saint Arnoult
Doubling in size, modern premises, air-conditioned, sound-proofed and the most suitable lifting equipment
Design of moulds for new products
The 8 double diffuser moulds with rotational slides, which flooded the cosmetics sector at that time.
An example of a stack mould for a takeaway container.
A new MD, new directions
Claude ROUXEL passes the business on to his son Frederic.
2010Production of numerous multi-cavity moulds
- 24-cavity mould for variable flow-rate pouring spout
- 32-cavity mould for cosmetics tube
Design of complex moulds
notre capacité à trouver des solutions performantes est largement mise à l’épreuve.
- 4+4 cavity mould for square container 120 mm tall
- 24-cavity dispenser mould that can be automatically adjusted for different volumes
2012The company celebrates its 40th year, and goes from strength to strength.
- The test centre expands with the addition of a travelling crane.
- We invest in a second automatic HAUSER coordinate grinding machine.
- New 550t Evos in the test centre
- Rouxel invests in the North American market
