Custom Molding for the Automotive Industry
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
From initial concept and design to full production runs, at Legacy Plastics, Inc. we are proud to be a one-stop shop for custom molding jobs for many different industries. We were contacted by a client in the automotive industry to manufacture custom molds for brush housings and industrial plugs. Our facility maintains a variety of cutting edge injection molding machines, and we utilized them to fabricate these products from various engineering grade resins. This was a particularly complex project, involving the injection molding of a plug with 6 over-molded terminals in a 6 slide mold, also used in a large plug for an emergency power generator. We used our client's specifications to create a 2D CAD drawing, and molded these various-sized parts to tolerances of ± 0.002". To ensure that the work was of the highest quality, we visually inspected and fit each part to gage. Our quality work met our clients' specifications and expectations, and we now manufacture 35,000 to 45,000 of these units to ship weekly based on our customer's product releases.
