Going the extra step to ensure the highest quality
Injection molding is one of the most precise ways to produce high-quality plastic components. But there’s more to a high-precision plastic part than the molding process. Once a part has been molded it undergoes a number of finishing steps. These steps are based on the client’s exact specifications. forteq is an expert in post-molding processes to create the perfect part.
Meeting all of your post-molding requirements
After molding, the plastic part may require further process steps. Post-molding processes can provide the exact required properties. For example, some plastic components may need to go through a flat or round grinding process to create a smooth surface or the necessary flatness. Printing or bar coding on the surface is required to identify the time and the batch number. Another common post-molding process is welding. This involves taking several plastic parts and joining them together using infrared welding, ultrasonic welding, spin welding, etc.
After all of the other post-molding steps have been completed, the assembly of different plastic or metal components may be required to complete the sub-component. It takes great attention to detail and precision to ensure that the sub-components can be assembled with the customer’s final product.
No matter which post-molding process is applied, they all need to meet the highest quality standards. As a result, having a partner you can trust is essential for the post-molding process.
