Molding

 

Molded plastic components are used in many electro-mechanical applications. They are usually made from engineering-grade polymers in multicavity injection molds running in high-speed molding presses. To assure success, the combination of component design, material selection, mold design, molding machine, and process control must be optimized.

 

APEX expertise aids in producing high quality molded parts at the lowest possible cost.

 

WHY APEX:

  • Lower cost by enhancing throughput
  • Enhance reliability
  • Improve product performance
  • Extend tool life
  • Proceed with confidence that knowledgeable industry professionals reviewed the application

APEX PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING:

  • Mold design review including mold flow assistance
  • Molding press selection
  • Auxiliary equipment recommendations
  • Analysis and recommendations for process variables
