Plastic injection molding is the ideal method for quickly producing functional plastic prototype parts for testing. Our injection molded prototypes offer the advantage of testing the molding process with your exact production material so that any process or material design flaws are discovered early on. Our unique prototype tooling can bring your product to life without sacrificing your design specifications or your budget.
Production-quality plastic prototypes start with production-quality molds. Our Modular Tooling System [MTS] was designed with the intent of replicating a production mold. Rather than reducing prototyping costs by using aluminum tooling, our MTS pockets out the areas of the mold that are specific to your part, reducing a complex mold to just a few pieces of steel. In short: we own the mold bases so our customers only have to pay for the inserts. The inserts require less steel and less time to work on which reduces the overall cost and lead time of the tool build. This process saves time and decreases the amount of capital required to get your project off the ground.
Ideal For: Functional plastic parts for design validation & testing.
Part Quantities: Typically 1 - 1,000 parts
Tool Material: P20 steel
Once the mold inserts are complete, they are fit into the mold base and placed into one of our automated injection molding presses. Parts are monitored by our proven RJG software, allowing the press to run day and night - even on weekends and holidays - without requiring an operator to remove parts or monitor quality. As a result, we're able to offer a quicker lead time and lower part price on prototypes and small production quantities. All of our prototype and bridge molds are designed incorporating the highest level of quality and features that can be transitioned into use for low volume production.
We also offer insert molding, overmolding, automatic unscrewing molds for internal threads and hand loaded molds for customers on a limited budget.
