What We Do
Automation is key to New Berlin Plastics’ success. When we work with customers to develop and launch a project, automation plays a vital role in ensuring we are providing the best possible value.
Mold Flow Analysis
Design through mold flow analysis
Mold Flow Analysis is the science of simulating a resin’s flow into a mold and the conditions that may arise during production. This predictive process can uncover part and mold design issues and allow corrective action before mold production begins
From simple to complex
New Berlin Plastics focuses on design for manufacturability. Whether your part design is a simple housing, highly engineered component, or a cosmetic cover we will ensure your part and mold design provide you the best product possible.
We offer full day seminars
New Berlin Plastics offers full day seminars on a variety of topics as an educational opportunity for our prospects and customers. These seminars, conducted in-person or virtually, provide valuable and actionable information to improve your capabilities when designing and sourcing injection molded parts. They also improve your knowledge base regarding plastics and the plastics industry. There are no costs involved with participating other than the day-long commitment to participate. Past attendees have communicated their participation has increased their value to their organization through the knowledge they gained.
We can tailor a seminar to focus on a topic more pertinent to the attending group, or select one of these seminar topics:
- Introduction to Injection Molding
- Principles of Part Design
- DFM Best Practices and Mold Flow Analysis
- Scientific Injection Molding
- Engineering Out Cost and Failure-Modes Through Design

Live up to all these values.
Traditional methods of plastic injection molding rely on process development based on machine inputs. This means that an injection molder must trust that the settings they are entering on the machine are being reflected accurately in the actual process. The problem with this informal method is that it often introduces uncontrolled risk in terms of…Read More

Recently, a consortium of Milwaukee-area manufacturers teamed up to help alleviate the shortage of face masks that hospital workers desperately need during the COVID-19 pandemic. This group, which calls itself MaskForce, has designed, developed and produced a reusable face mask with easily changed filter media.Read More
How do you specify materials for your plastic injection-molded parts? Do you have favorite resins you like to use? If so, you may be paying too much for them or you may be over-engineering the parts for their applications. A more cost-effective approach is to specify an ASTM material standard for the material that you…Read More
The recent coronavirus outbreak has reinforced the need for manufacturers to have a risk mitigation plan in place so they’re prepared for disruptions to their global supply chain.
