Utilizing Pro/ENGINEER® solid modeling design software in conjunction with sophisticated analytical engineering tools such as Abaqus® (FEA), Plastic Advisor® and Moldflow®, our design engineering team collaborates with our customers to develop cost-effective solutions to their problems. In addition to extensive design and process analyses, we also conduct product validation tests to verify designs and ensure that our products will perform effectively in our customers’ applications.
Converting Metal Parts to Plastic
We have extensive experience with metal-toplastic conversions. Replacing metal with plastic can offer a number of advantages, including reduced weight, lower costs, and greater flexibility. Unlike metals, plastic materials can be easily configured to best suit a particular application. Plastics also allow for choices in molding,making plastic more versatile than metal in many instances.Also, when designed properly, plastic parts can match or exceed the physical strength of metal.
