Total Solutions for the Design, Engineering and Manufacture of Precision, Injection-Molded Plastic Parts and Components

The PMT plastic injection molding engineering and design department assists customers with actual part design and development, including material selection and rapid prototyping for precision injection-molded plastic parts and components.

Our team of engineering professionals has the breadth and depth of skills and experience required to provide turnkey solutions for the design, engineering and manufacture of precision-engineered parts and components. This includes complex insert-molded components and parts that require tight tolerances and highly engineered resins.

Core engineering and design services include:

  • Consulting
  • Material selection
  • 3-D modeling
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Mold building and sourcing
  • Project management

We have sourced more than 2,000 molds from toolmakers in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia. Our global network of established relationships enables us to recommend and work with the best toolmaker for each individual project and budget. Additionally, we have successfully managed a large number of mold transfer projects.

An Integral Part of Our Commitment to Quality and Service

Capitalizing on our on-site Quality Laboratory equipped with modern testing systems, E&D works closely with our Production team, leveraging engineering knowledge and skills to improve quality in our manufacturing processes. As a leading supplier to Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive manufacturers, we utilize the automotive industry’s rigorous Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) to ensure confidence, reliability and consistency in the Company’s production processes. E&D was also instrumental in our implementation of the eDART System™, a powerful production process monitoring and control system with an array of features and functions designed to enhance quality controls throughout the manufacturing process.

Our E&D team is an integral part of our sales and customer service processes, and often works closely with customers to reduce part cost, enhance part design and quality, and solve problems in downstream manufacturing. E&D also provides overall project management, which improves communications with customers and assures the highest level of quality in every part from start to finish. PMT’s close proximity to many customer manufacturing plants also allows our engineering and design team to provide customers with on-site service and support.

Fully Equipped with Advanced Design Tools

A wide array of advanced technology systems is deployed to enhance engineering and design processes, and to ensure that our systems are compatible with the design systems used by customers. Such tools include, but are not limited to:

  • AutoCAD
  • SolidWorks
  • AutoVue Solid-Model Pro
  • TransMagic
  • Moldflow
  • IDES Database

Our solutions-driven approach to engineering and design, coupled with a strong, service-driven approach to project management, has enabled PMT to build and provide uncompromising levels of service and maintain long-standing customer relationships.
