Lighting Design and Engineering
Available from Custom Plastics, Inc.
Custom Plastics, Inc. provides a dedicated team of engineers, tooling specialists and customer service personnel to turn lighting concepts into high quality final products. Once a drawing is finalized, a 3D prototype of the product is produced within a few hours. The customer is then able to examine the prototype for fit and function and any suggested changes can be made to the design, followed by the production of a second prototype. This process is repeated until both the customer and the engineers are satisfied with the design.
Using the approved prototype model, the engineering team is then able to use SolidWorks® MoldFlow analysis to optimize tooling design and gain extensive knowledge of how the chosen plastic resin will flow through the mold. This allows determining if the part will be molded properly, and if not, adjustments can be made before any tooling costs are incurred by the customer.
Custom Plastics has invested heavily in its design and engineering capabilities in order to save customers time and money. Further benefits of partnering with Custom Plastics for design and development needs include:
Complete production tooling - Custom Plastics builds its own extrusion dies;
Proactive maintenance and upkeep of machinery;
Comprehensive resin review & selection;
All of the necessary engineering software;
Rapid prototyping capabilities; and,
Project management process
