Plastic Parts has maintained a full service in-house tool room for over 30 years, which has grown and expanded to meet the needs of our current and future customers. Our capabilities include design and manufacture of exceptional quality injection molds, fixtures, prototypes, automation, and end-of-arm tooling. Our knowledge of materials and the injection molding process is integrated into the project from the initial part design consultation, through the mold design process, resulting in a finished tool that is designed for high volume, efficient, and cost effective production. We focus on the very best tool design as the foundation for excellent manufacturing. We then match the injection mold with appropriate automation, end-of-arm tooling, and in process validation to ensure repeatable quality performance.
We seek local and global alternatives for our tooling sources to provide the best solution for custom requirements and budget parameters. As a US-based company, we maintain strong relationships with domestic tooling sources that have historically provided excellent work for us, allowing us to offer multiple options for timely, cost-effective tool sourcing.
In today's competitive environment we may utilize sources outside of the US if our customer’s budget mandates a cost-based solution or challenging time frame that can’t be achieved state-side. We have many years of experience using overseas resources that we have thoroughly evaluated to be reputable providers of quality workmanship. We have developed an extensive control program consisting of explicit tooling requirements and regimented follow-up. The mold design is reviewed extensively by our engineering team and must conform to our strict requirements. With the program checks and balances we have in place, Plastic Parts, Inc. global tooling sourcing is a successful experience.
