Currier Plastics has implemented state-of-the art Injection Molding equipment with full Statistical Process Control (SPC) capabilities. This investment in technology provides higher quality parts combined with lower prices and tighter specifications for our customers.
Our Injection Molding facility offers equipment ranging from 24 to 500 Ton clamping pressure. This department has incorporated automation throughout the equipment spectrum. We have engineered several methods for living hinge applications (like dispensing closures & lids) including in-mold and end of arm robotic systems. These processes give our customers flexibility when determining both annual capacity and targeted costs.
Currier Plastics is also experienced in processing a full range of specialty-engineered thermoplastics to optimize our customers plastic design requirements. These engineered resins include high temperature and filled materials incorporating glass, minerals, carbon, and metals.
The Injection Molding group also specializes in Metal to Plastic conversion. By replacing metal with high performance composite plastics, our customers can significantly reduce the cost and weight of many parts. Full strength and functional specifications are maintained or exceeded, and the plastic part requires fewer finishing operations. Insert molding is another service this department offers to reduce cycle time and cost by molding plastic around metal components, thereby eliminating a step in the assembly chain.
Resin is heated to a molten state. The resin is injected through a hot runner into the injection cavity tool where the product is formed including its threads, shapes, and hinges.Once the product has cooled, the mold opens and the product is ejected for down stream quality inspection and further processing if required.
