FAQ: "What Is The Maximum Part Size The ERC Can Run?"

Posted by Molly Skiba on Jun 19, 2019

We're back from New York City. Despite a few delayed flights and a good amount of rain, we had a fantastic time exhibiting at Atlantic Design & Manufacturing last week. If you haven't been to a Atlantic Design & Manufacturing/Plastec/MD&M/Quality Expo show, I highly recommend attending one in the future.

One of the questions we were asked a lot at the trade show was "what is your maximum part size?" With our new 200 ton press, we can safely mold parts of approximately 15 cubic inches. It can be helpful to have a visual representation of the part sizes your chosen production house is capable of so when we go to trade shows, we always bring examples of what we can do. Here's a side-by-side picture of one of the smallest and largest parts we can mold in-house.small-and-large-part

As you can see, our team can help you develop anything from tiny, intricately detailed parts (such as the one shown on the left) to parts to parts as large as the one pictured on the right. And of course, we will always develop your parts to the exact specifications on your design print without asking you to compromise any design features. 

We'd love to help you out with your plastic prototype or low volume projects, big or small. If you're not ready for an official quote, you can use our Pricing Calculator to get a general estimate. For more exact pricing, reach out to our engineers via our Rapid Quote form.
