Injection Molding

Fabrication Processes

There are several methods for fabricating engineered plastics into parts. Each has its strengths and appropriate applications. In keeping with our goal of solving client challenges, Diversified Plastics fabricates using four methods.

  • MultiFab Technology™: This proprietary approach combines as many as three of our fabrication processes to create parts comprised of multiple components or materials. MultiFab parts wear better and often cost less to purchase and maintain.
  • Machining: Machining out of solid engineered plastic stock is the ideal way to create parts for applications that require tight tolerances and uniform finish in low- to mid-quantity runs.
  • Injection Molding: Injection molding and overmolding is an extremely flexible process that dramatically reduces waste and cost when creating parts especially in mid- to high-volume runs.
  • Urethane Casting: Pouring liquid urethane into molds and allowing it to cure is a proven method for creating parts in a multitude of shapes, sizes and durometers.
  • Thermoforming: Forming plastic sheet material with heat and pressure is a very cost-effective and versatile process with low set-up and tooling costs, making it efficient for low volume runs.

At Diversified Plastics, we believe our fabrication capabilities give us an advantage over other manufacturers. First, because we can match the method to your requirement. Second, because we’re able to meet specifications and cost parameters in innovative ways. For example, our processes reduce material waste and man-hours.
