Plastics play a very important role in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications - ranging from packaging and building/construction to transportation; consumer and institutional products; furniture and furnishings; electronics and more.
Despite lower product demand across many industries globally, use of plastics continue to remain stable and are projected to grow at a steady pace in the coming years. However, the economic crisis and the high cost of carrying out plastic injection and mold design activities have not helped companies. With lower budgets and tighter cost control measures, outsourcing might just be the right option in troubled times.
Outsourcing plastic injection & blow molding, enables you to divert your money into growing the business whilst maintaining high quality product and process standards. From a low end outsourcing service provider in the early days, India has come a long way. Today it boasts of providing cutting edge outsourcing services across various industries including manufacturing and mechanical engineering industries.
Flatworld Solutions has leveraged these advantages and has been working with companies across the globe in catering to their engineering needs - specifically in the area of design. We can assist you with prototyping, product design, mold tool design and analysis as well as manufacturing.
Plastic Injection & Blow Molding Services by Flatworld Solutions
Flatworld's plastic injection and blow molding services cover three main areas:
1. Plastic Production
Our knowledge and experience in plastic processing helps us manufacture intricate plastic parts at the lowest cost with tight tolerances and specifications using both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials.
With expertise in all areas of an injection molding process, we can work with you to produce high quality molded parts. We also take into account complications such as warpage of parts, surface imperfections, burned parts, or incomplete filling due to a slow injection stroke.
We work with a wide array of plastic materials such as polypropylene, polystyrene, polyethylene, poly carbonate, ABC, PVC, etc.
2. Mold Design
We follow mold design guidelines to maintain a uniform least wall thickness throughout the part, thereby reducing defects and cycle times with minimal shot weight. This is to facilitate an easy withdrawal of parts from molds without compromising on part stiffness in bending by using ribs and gussets.
Working with CAD/CAM software such as ProE, CATIA etc, you can make use of our mold prototyping and reverse engineering capabilities for regeneration and modifications of the existing molds utilizing:
3D Laser Scanner for Geometric inspection
Rapidform XOV for manipulation of Point Cloud data
Rapidform XOR for building up of Geometry
3. Mold Flow Analysis
Mold flow analysis is carried out to achieve:
Optimization of material usage
Optimization of process parameters
Optimization of cycle time
Optimization of gate location, feed system and cooling circuitry
Prediction of defects and suggestions to overcome / avoid the same
Warpage prediction and suggestions for minimizing warpage
Mold flow predicts accurately the behavior of plastic materials under different processing conditions and design parameters. We have the full suite of Moldflow software modules to perform a variety of analysis procedures which enables our customers to save on materials, process time, processing costs and to optimize design.
We have carried out analysis for:
