The number one in the world, in Hand Held Extruder Technology!

With our many years of expertise in plastic welding technology, we give you unparalleled support in all your plastic welding applications.

Worldwide Market and Technology Leader

The invention of the hand held extruder for thermoplastic welding applications in 1973 by Erich Munsch launched an innovative, first-of-its kind product line.

In 1991, as a spin off, MUNSCH Kunststoff-Schweißtechnik GmbH became an independent business. The decision on this move was reached on the basis of the high acceptance in the market and sustained high level growth rates.

The brand name MUNSCH stands for quality and reliability. For over 40 years our know-how has been of significant importance in container engineering and landfill construction. Ease of handling and unique design make MUNSCH hand extruders a professional and easy to handle tool for thermoplastic welding operations. Being the world’s No.1 in the industry we are represented on all 5 continents.

Our products are developed, manufactured and tested in Ransbach-Baumbach, Westerwald, Germany. Our high-quality and competent service and support is available around the globe.
