Our history

Incos is born

It all started in a garage just outside Treviso, close to Venice. Maurizio Bazzo established Incos (Industria Costruzione Stampi) to design and fabricate moulds for the plastics industry.
From the start, we focused on multi-colour and multi-component rotating moulds for car lighting systems.

HRSflow is born

The HRSflow (Hot Runner System) division is established to design and fabricate hot runner systems for injection moulding. A.S.'s many years of experience in hot runners and INglass's experience in lighting moulds enable us to offer a line of hot runners to cover all the needs of the automotive industry. The company immediately started going global.

Fail Safe

The company registers a patent for Fail Safe, a system using dual heating elements and dual thermocouples on arm-mounted injectors, thus revolutionising the hot runner market.

The company changes name

INglass, initially the trade name of the Plastic Glazing division for the production of large area polycarbonate moulds, becomes the company name thanks to the high market profile of this technology. In the same year, the company presented a series of control units able to monitor the entire moulding process.
