Avoid molders who rely on tribal knowledge

How important is effective knowledge management in a high-performance injection molding operation? More important than you may think. It can have a big impact on part quality and risk reduction. Here’s an inside look at New Berlin Plastics’ sophisticated approach to knowledge management.

What We Do

Automatic Robot Arm

Automation

Molding Automation

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

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

Design assistance
