Injection Molding Troubleshooting
Our problem solving starts with our injection molding services. We perform a number of different molding processes, and use advanced technology and equipment to produce top quality molded parts with supreme precision and outstanding repeatability.
All of our plastic injection molding methods are highly flexible, and can be tailored to meet the demands of your project. All molds and tools are designed to ensure that the finished product adheres perfectly to the design you provide. We also offer a variety of secondary services to add additional features and functions to plastic molded products.
Solving Problems with Plastics
Springboard works with a wide variety of materials, to give your custom plastic injection molded products the properties and usability you need. If none of our standard or exotic resins are right for your project, we have solid relationships with specialized compounders, such as RTP and Ticona, which enable us to provide the unique material solution you need.
RTP modifies standard, "off-the-shelf" thermoplastics by adding special compounds to their chemistry to add new or improve existing material characteristics and properties, such as greater strength or improved heat resistance. Ticona creates a number of highly specialized engineering polymers to meet the needs of today's marketplace, including unique materials for electronics and other critical industries. Working closely with these specialized compounders gives us a higher level of excellence in our plastic injection molding processes.
