One of the most frustrating struggles that we hear from our customers is the all too common dilemma of having a great idea for a plastic part with no clue how to execute it. We’re here help you through that process! With more than 35 years of experience in the plastics injection molding industry, we’re a leading provider of injection molded plastic parts, and specialize in plastic part design.
The first thing people might not understand is the complexity and cost of an injection mold. Injection molds are custom built steel tools that take weeks to construct and cost anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000. Cost is one of the main reasons that custom injection molded plastic parts are (generally) only manufactured in large quantities – the more pieces you sell, the cheaper the mold cost per piece. Each case depends upon the design, size, and complexity of the custom plastic parts being molded and manufactured for a specific job.
Now, you’re probably wondering why anyone would spend that kind of money on a mold. The reason is that the individual part costs are much cheaper than a fabricated part. Why? Because the part is, essentially, a finished item when it comes out of the mold.
Do you have a part print / drawing for your project? We can help with that too! Our staff of design engineers can bring your idea to life. Your drawing helps us build the mold to the exact dimensions required.
The appliance industry is one example of a standard business that relies on custom injection molded plastic parts. They use this process for replacement parts and other applications.
Product designers turn to us and rely on our in-house rapid prototyping, custom plastic injection mold design, and production of tools to transform their custom designs from the concept phase to reality; however, it is a complex process that requires a significant initial investment.
