Plastic Custom Processing Case Study: How to Provide High-Quality, High-Efficiency, and Cost-Effective Plastic Products for Customers

Plastic custom processing is a process that creates plastic products according to the specific requirements of customers. These requirements can include shape, size, color, function and more. Plastic custom processing has many advantages over standard plastic products. For example:

  • It allows customers to have more flexibility and control over their product design and specifications.
  • It offers a wide range of options for different types of plastics and their properties.
  • It enhances the durability and recyclability of plastic products by reducing waste and material consumption.
  • It can be applied to various fields and industries that need customized plastic solutions.

In this article, we will share some examples of how we provide high-quality, high-efficiency and cost-effective plastic custom processing services for our customers in different fields. We will introduce our process of selecting plastic materials, designing plastic molds, molding plastic products and post-processing them. We will also show you how our plastic products meet or exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of quality, accuracy, durability, safety, hygiene, functionality, aesthetics, creativity and fun.

Case 1: Providing Plastic Custom Processing Service for an Automotive Parts Company

One of our customers is an automotive parts company that needs customized plastic components for their vehicles. They want their components to be strong, lightweight and resistant to heat and corrosion. They also want their components to have precise dimensions and smooth surfaces.

ABS material model

To meet their needs, we use ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) as our main plastic material. ABS is a thermoplastic polymer that has high impact strength, rigidity and toughness. It also has good thermal stability and chemical resistance. ABS can be easily molded into complex shapes and sizes with high accuracy and smoothness.

We use injection molding as our main plastic molding method. Injection molding is one of the most common and versatile plastic fabrication methods. It involves melting plastic pellets and injecting them under high pressure into a metal mold cavity. The mold cavity has the shape and size of the desired product. The injected plastic fills and solidifies in the mold cavity, forming the product.

Drawing design and confirmation

We use CNC (computer numerical control) machines to design and make our metal molds. CNC machines are automated tools that can create precise and intricate molds with high speed and efficiency. We use CAD (computer-aided design) software to create 3D models of our products and molds based on our customers’ specifications. We then use CAM (computer-aided manufacturing ) software to convert the 3D models into machine instructions that control the CNC machines. We use high-quality metal materials such as steel and aluminum to make our molds durable and accurate.

We use various plastic post-processing methods to improve the appearance and performance of our plastic products. Some of these methods include:

  • Trimming: We use cutting tools to remove excess plastic material and support structures from our products.
    Acrylic sandblasting process
  • Sanding: We use abrasive materials to smooth the surface of our products and remove any defects or marks.
  • Polishing: We use polishing compounds and buffing wheels to create a glossy and shiny surface on our products.
  • Painting: We use spray guns or brushes to apply colors and coatings on our products to enhance their aesthetics and protection.

Our plastic products meet the high standards of our automotive parts customers. They have excellent quality, accuracy, and durability. They can withstand high temperatures, pressures, and corrosions. They can fit perfectly into the vehicles and perform their functions well.

Case 2: Providing Plastic Custom Processing Service for a Medical Device Company

Another one of our customers is a medical device company that needs customized plastic components for their devices. They want their components to be safe, hygienic, and functional. They also want their components to have complex shapes and features.

To meet their needs, we use POM (polyoxymethylene) as our main plastic material. POM is a thermoplastic polymer that has high stiffness, strength, and hardness. It also has good resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and fatigue. POM can be molded into intricate shapes and features with high precision and smoothness.

Implantable PEEK

We use vacuum casting as our main plastic molding method. Vacuum casting is a low-cost and fast plastic fabrication method that is suitable for small batches of plastic products. It involves creating a silicone mold from a master model, placing it in a vacuum chamber, pouring liquid plastic resin into the mold, curing the resin under vacuum pressure, and demolding the product.

We use 3D printing as our main method to create our master models. 3D printing is an additive manufacturing method that builds objects layer by layer from digital models. 3D printing can create complex and detailed models with high accuracy and speed. We use SLA (stereolithography) 3D printing technology that uses a laser to cure liquid resin into solid objects.

3D Printing

We use various plastic post-processing methods to improve the appearance and performance of our plastic products. Some of these methods include:

  • Cleaning: We use water, alcohol, or ultrasonic cleaners to remove any residue or dirt from our products.
  • Sterilizing: We use heat, chemicals, or radiation to kill any bacteria or germs on our products.
  • Testing: We use various instruments and methods to check the functionality, reliability, and safety of our products.

Our plastic products meet the high standards of our medical device customers. They have excellent safety, hygiene, and functionality. They can resist chemicals, abrasion, and fatigue. They can perform complex and delicate tasks in medical applications.

Case 3: Providing Plastic Custom Processing Service for a Toy Company

Another one of our customers is a toy company that needs customized plastic components for their toys. They want their components to be beautiful, creative, and fun. They also want their components to have colorful and diverse designs.

To meet their needs, we use PVC (polyvinyl chloride) as our main plastic material. PVC is a thermoplastic polymer that has good flexibility, durability, and affordability. It also has good compatibility with various additives and colors. PVC can be molded into various shapes and designs with high diversity and creativity.

Customized toys

We use thermoforming as our main plastic molding method. Thermoforming is a low-cost and simple plastic fabrication method that is suitable for large batches of plastic products. It involves heating a plastic sheet until it becomes soft and pliable, placing it over a mold or die, applying vacuum or pressure to form the sheet into the shape of the mold or die, cooling the sheet until it becomes rigid again, and trimming the excess material.

We use various methods to create our molds or dies. Some of these methods include:

  • CNC machining: We use CNC machines to cut metal or wood materials into precise molds or dies based on digital models.
  • Lasercutting: We use a laser beam to cut metal or plastic materials into precise molds or dies based on digital models.
  • 3D printing: We use 3D printing to create plastic molds or dies with complex shapes and features.

We use various plastic coloring methods to add colors and designs to our plastic products. Some of these methods include:

  • Masterbatch: We use masterbatch, which is a concentrated mixture of pigments and additives in a carrier resin, to mix with natural resin and create colored resin.
  • Pre-colored resin: We use pre-colored resin, which is a resin that has already been mixed with pigments and additives, to create colored products directly.
  • Painting: We use painting, which is a process of applying colors and coatings on the surface of products, to enhance their aesthetics and protection.
Customized toys

Our plastic products meet the high standards of our toy customers. They have excellent aesthetics, creativity, and fun. They can have colorful and diverse designs that appeal to children and adults alike. They can also be safe and durable for playing.
