INJECTION MOLDING EXPERTISE
New Berlin Plastics has the expertise to make your project a success using the following:
- Scientific Injection Molding
- Part design assistance
- Design-for-manufacturing services
- Resin selection assistance
- Mold design
- Tool construction
Customers benefit from a variety of press sizes, ranging from 4 to 1200 tons, which gives New Berlin Plastics the ability to manufacture parts of varying size and complexity. Our tightly controlled scientific injection molding practices raise our services to the highest level of precision and allow us to create parts, simple or complex, in a repeatable and dependable way.
Scientific Injection Molding (SIM) involves data collection, machine maintenance, process development, material characteristics and management, and the influence each has on the others. SIM gives us the ability to identify visually undetectable flaws during part molding. This allows us to solve the root cause rather than treat the symptom. There are multiple key components in a well-developed SIM process including:
- Part Design
- Polymer Selection
- Mold Design
- Press Performance
The goal of SIM is to move injection molding away from being an art to a data-driven, scientifically rigorous procedure. By employing the strenuous data collection and analysis generated through use of RJG technology, and tightly controlled molding techniques. New Berlin Plastics can produce data-driven dependable processes that create consistent and reliable parts.
