We believe in working in partnership with you,
acting as an extension of your own technical
department. Working together we can find the
best injection moulding solution.
Design for plastic injection moulding requires a certain approach and working with Moulton Builders saves time and money and results in suitable plastic moulding designs from the outset.
Here at Moulton Builders we work in partnership from initial concept, through the injection moulding design stage using 3D CAD, to the making of the injection mould tool. All through that process, we share our expertise with customers and together we optimise the choice of plastic material, physical shape, ease of production, cost and performance.
We advocate that you take the opportunity to tap into this technical support early in the design process because it helps de-risk the project thus avoiding costlier modifications at a later stage.
There are many things to consider when designing for injection moulding. That’s why our experts are here to help. Moulton Builders uses VISI Flow software to fine tune new mould designs, therefore, ensuring cost effective and reliable designs from the outset.
PROTOTYPEs can also be arranged. Moulton Builders has its own 3D printer capable of producing rapid plastic PROTOTYPEs which will closely resemble the final injection moulded parts enabling you to fully test the part prior to investing in tooling.
Designing for plastic injection moulding requires special consideration. We have a series of articles covering designing for Injection Moulding. To read more about our design guidelines please click here.
With more than 13 years experience in the injection moulding of plastic components, we can provide advice and quotes on anything from a simple sketch to a 3D computer model.
We can provide advice and quotes on anything from a simple sketch to a 3D computer model. Most drawing formats can be handled although we find STEP, Parasolid and DXF translate most successfully.
