OUR METHODA clear overview
Concept phaseGlobal product specifications
At the first contact we will ask a few questions to get a global idea of your product.
You may consider:
• Global Product Specification / Measurements
• Mechanical requirements
• Visual requirements
• Serial size
• Surface structure (PU)
Concept phaseFunctional requirements / materials
After reviewing the global requirements, we will go deeper into the details to get the best solution.
You may consider:
• Material type
• Colour & structure of the material
• Any fire standards
• Special requirements (think of chemical resistance and UV radiation)
• Tolerances in sizes
• Mould design, type, single or multiple
• Positive or negative forms (mould side)
You have chosen the right type of plastic, the 3D cad / cam files are ready and we will make your trial or protoype.
We'll form on a polyurethane foam mould so that we can make adjustments to the final design.
Test phaseSerial die (or tool)
After your trial or protoype has been approved and any adjustments have been made, you can order the alloy die.
Production on this mould, partly due to the use of refrigeration pipes, gives a steady product and hardly wears out.
The CNC supporting jig for the 5-axis post-finishing is made after the first formings.
This time we also make a first out of tool that has to be approved by you before we start producing the series.
Production phaseReady for production
As soon as we have received the approval of the trial or protype, we will start production.Linktekst
What many people don’t know is that the types of plastic we work with, the so-called thermoplastics, are very durable because they can be recycled for 100%. All the plastic waste we have in Plastica is sorted by color and type of plastic and is collected to be processed into regenerated plastic sheets.
