For over 50 years, Proto-Cast, LLC has been designing, building, maintaining, and running molds – as well as offering various secondary operations – to customers in a variety of industries. From Aerospace to Industrial, we are a custom plastic injection molding service with the experience and expertise to meet the needs of your industry.
Aerospace and Defense
The use of high-performance plastics in aerospace designs is constantly reaching new heights. In fact, Boeing used plastic composites as the primary material in the airframe of their new Dreamliner. That is because the plastics that have been developed for Aerospace and Defense use are heat, flame and chemical resistant, have very little smoke emission, and do not corrode.
From the start of our business, aerospace and defense applications have been an integral part of Proto-Cast, LLC. Our diverse machine portfolio and ability to use in-house mold bases keep your initial tooling investment to a minimum. We also have decades of experience processing specially engineered thermoplastic material.
One of our aerospace customers had a product line of 16 different parts that shared the same geometry but needed different secondary operations to meet spec. This reduced the volume for each item, increasing cost. Proto-Cast, LLC was able to design interchangeable cores for the mold, thereby molding all the different requirements for each part and eliminating the costly secondary operations. Our experience as a custom plastic injection molding service allowed us to implement this cost-effective solution for our customer.
Medical and Dental
Medical and Dental devices are complex in form and function and are constantly evolving to match the needs and advances of the field. Things that seemed impossible fifty years ago are now possible thanks to custom plastic injection molding services, from artificial hearts to spinal repair. Medical and Dental plastics have also helped reduce medical costs, infectious disease, and pain management.
This is largely due to the characteristics of the plastics themselves, with enhanced properties such as strength, flexibility, transparency, temperature and chemical resistance. Proto-Cast, LLC understands the intricacies involved in medical device design, and the need for plastics that are up to the demanding tasks of the industry. We have molded many of the plastic resins required for these industries, and continue to innovate designs and production capabilities.
Industrial and Consumer
These industries run the gamut of products, from hair brushes and sports equipment to plumbing parts and food storage containers. While these items don’t appear to have anything in common, they are only possible through the diligent work of a custom plastic injection molding service.
