Plastic Injection Molding

Injection Molding Overview

Our 130,000-square-foot facility in Westminster, Colorado houses our entire plastics operation: DFM engineering, tool design and build, plastic injection molding, assembly and secondary finishing, and fulfillment. You are assigned a dedicated team of experts who serve as your single point of contact throughout the product lifecycle, assisting with initial parts discussions and production launch. With over 40 years of experience, we have the expertise to ensure your product will launch without delay.  Our early engineering involvement allows us to mitigate design issues and costs while decreasing time to market.

How it works

Plastic injection molding is the process of injecting molten plastic material into a metal tool which then cools and ejects a plastic part from the machine.  The majority of plastic products we see and use everyday are made using this manufacturing process.
