ENGINEERING AND DESIGN
The experienced staff at Copperstate Plastics uses the most advanced drafting software and state of the art equipment to develop and manufacture custom plastic molded products based on our clients’ needs. Initial consultations and custom quotes are provided to you free of charge.
Copperstate Plastics’ capabilities include high quality in house tooling expertise. Our experienced toolmakers design and fabricate high precision CNC machined aluminum molds. Special tooling features such as zero degree drafts, undercuts, countersinks, vents, inserts, and ribbing are all available, as well as molded-in logos, lettering and textures.
After forming is complete, the newly created part will be accurately trimmed. This critical step utilizes our in-house programmed CNC Machines. Copperstate Plastics utilizes five-axis and three-axis CNC routing machines. Our five-axis CNC routing machines feature dual tables which are capable of handling either large part sizes or multiple parts simultaneously to acclerate part turns.
VACUUM AND PRESSURE FORMING
When bringing a product to market, tooling costs can represent a significant initial investment. When compared to other processes, one big advantage of pressure forming is a much lower tooling investment – up to 90% less than injection molded tooling. In terms of quality and detailing, pressure formed parts compare favorably to injection-molded parts. Flexible volume production runs are available from 10 to 10,000 parts and tooling is guaranteed for the life of your product. The pressure forming process offers close tolerances, accurate specifications and high levels of detail. Our forming capabilities allow for part sizes up to 5’x8′.
