A. We are able to produce parts ranging in size from very small (pen point) to medium (toaster oven). However, we do not produce large pieces (like a window frame).
A. We won’t actually design the end product. However, we will review and assist you from a vendor perspective. Our experience and understanding of plastic injection molding may save you tremendous time and cost in developing a product easily producible.
A. No, we only do thermoplastic. The advantage of thermoplastic is that it can be melted again into plastic. Thermoset is unchangeable once it has set.
A. We use a range of plastics from cost-effective PS to high-grade engineering plastics like PEEK and much more in between.
A. We exclusively use SOLIDWORKS CAD software to review part designs for accurate project quoting and to see potential problem areas that need to be redesigned before molds are made.
A. This is up to you. We can help review and give you suggestions, but ultimately you will have to decide what plastic is right for your part, the end user, and your company.
A. This varies greatly depending on quantity and complexity of the part. It could be anywhere from 3 – 4 weeks or 18 – 20 weeks.
A. The mold is owned by you. However, it is stored on the Midstate premises for safekeeping and ease of access as new orders are required.
A. We are careful to clean the mold and perform any required maintenance on the mold after each time we use it. Then it is safely stored away until the next shipment is needed.
A. Because of our mold maintenance shop, we are able to maintain, adjust, and repair the mold as needed.
