Plastics Engineering & Technical Support

R&D Plastics provides engineering support in the form of material selection assistance and advice on part design for tooling and manufacturability. The company also manages the mold design, construction and qualification to prepare the mold for problem-free production. R&D Plastics produces plastic injection molded parts for a wide variety of industries using virtually all available thermo plastic materials. Addtionally, R&D Plastics provides assembly and decorating options to our customers.

R&D Plastics also present a number of plastic injection molding seminars that educate customers on the molding process and part design. Lunch and learn presentations on specific materials or new process technologies are occasionally offered to keep our customers up to date.

General steps involved in plastics engineering include understanding the application, part design, quotes, prototyping, mold design and construction, mold qualification, part approval, and production. When choosing a material, factors such as the environment, aesthetics, material cost, application, and dimensional requirements must be considered. R&D Plastics can assist with design challenges such as snaps, hinges, light pipes, overmolding, insert molding, structural foam molding, and thin-walled molding.

R&D Plastics can provide comprehensive part pricing documentation when required. Our tight quality standards and Statistical Process Control (SPC) ensure that we consistently deliver the highest level of quality. To learn more about this capability, please see the table below or contact us today.
