We provide our clients with workable, performance optimised solutions, based on the knowledge and experience that we bring to any complex or simple design challenge.
Plastic injection moulding technologies are used in the production of high volume, repeatable parts. They are also used as a rapid manufacturing (RM) process to prove designed parts, their functions and performance characteristics, before committing to expensive tooling for manufacture and testing of a concept.
Tooling for these processes can be very expensive and it is, therefore, crucial in the design phase to minimise costs, as the cost per part, in mass-produced items, can be very small. It is crucial when designing products that consideration is given on how they will be formed, removal from the mould, the structural properties and amount of material to be used in the final product.
Design for Plastic injection moulding technologies is a manufacturing process for producing parts and can be applied to multiple environments, using polymers, sometimes referred to as resins, including all thermoplastics, some thermosets and elastomers, thermoplastics and thermosetting plastic materials.
Product designers can choose from a wide variety of materials, including alloys or blends of previously developed materials. This allows key considerations to be made before modelling the part and tooling, to provide one that has exactly the right properties.
PES Performance offers design engineering services from our office based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Sheffield. Our design team has extensive knowledge and engineering pedigree developed over years of experience working within high-performance sectors including F1, automotive, aerospace, medical, Olympic sports and heavy engineering.
