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.

But several trends are placing increasing demands on plastics in hospitals and…Read More
Designing parts for plastic injection molding requires a delicate balance of functionality, quality, and cost. Fortunately, part designers, molders, and material providers have distilled many years of experience into a set of design guidelines. These rules of thumb lead to higher quality parts that are easier to produce. Most importantly, they can help you to…Read More
A global pandemic, extreme cold weather in Texas, surging consumer demand and clogged transportation systems have combined to create a chaotic situation in the plastic resin market. Supplies of many resins are desperately low, and other raw materials used for molding plastic parts, such as metals and glass, are also in short supply. With so…Read More
Many parts manufacturers think of mold flow analysis as just another box to check in the process of developing a new plastic part. They rely on the software to generate and provide insights, or potentially, confirmation bias. However, without experienced professionals interpreting the data and using it to drive design choices, it has limited value. …Read More
Despite the pandemic, New Berlin Plastics expanded in 2020 and is poised for additional growth in 2021.
