One of the many clients we have the privilege of working with are those in the automotive industry. Some of the molds that we fabricate for those clients allow them to make what may seem to be a small, uninteresting piece of plastic. However, some of those pieces will go on to be used to manufacture seat belts and safety restraints in vehicles. Due to the nature of these products, precise process management, engineering and quality is essential.
When designing pieces for the automotive industry, the first place we start is developing a prototype. When developing a prototype for something as crucial as a seatbelt mechanism, our team takes the time needed to put together a detailed initial design. Getting a prototype together helps us in evaluating and testing the design, as well as in checking for any additional costs or potential issues.
Before we are able to manufacture any integral part of a design, we must make sure we have a solid design in place. Once completed, we can build an injection mold to meet the product specifications. This crucial piece of our fabricating puzzle is managed by our Design Engineers. These key team members assess the design and make the necessary modifications and recommendations to the product to ensure safety and functionality.
Machinery & Mold-Making
After completing the rigorous prototyping and engineering processes, our skilled machinists and mold-makers work with the latest in technology and equipment to ensure accuracy and reliability.
Each step we take as we manufacture molds for our customers is crucial to us. We want to make sure what we produce is not only a quality product, but one that fits the specific needs of our clients and is made to spec to ensure the utmost safety.
Our team gets excitement from an engineering or machinery challenge, but it’s also makes us proud to know our work helps to create safe and strong safety restraints in vehicles.
