Plastic Engineering and Design Services

Engineering

Fabrik Molded Plastics' cross functional project management team focuses on each project from design and development through part approval and production. During the quotation process, we make certain we understand all the intricacies of the design concept as it relates to our technologies and capabilities. When all related information has been evaluated, the most cost effective proposal with the best engineering approach is provided. A very important step in the successful production of any product is the necessity of proper design for manufacturing. This understanding must adopt good engineering practices for part design, tool design, and the respective integration of equipment to produce the final product. Fabrik's goal is to meet and exceed your standards for quality molded plastic components, and to continually work toward improvements in an ever changing world of manufacturing.

Design

The first crucial step in successfully manufacturing any product is the design of both the product and the tooling. A thorough understanding and integration of all aspects of the manufacturing process are necessary to create a product that not only satisfies the criteria of the customer, but can also be produced as efficiently as possible.

Fabrik utilizes the most current 3D Computer-aided design and tool manufacturing techniques. At the beginning of the part and mold design process, our experienced design engineering group utilizes mold flow analysis to simulate flow, analyze gate location, optimize cooling and validate part and tool design. The evaluation of part design and manufacturability eliminates additional costs and time delays when problems are discovered during production.

Our current design and software interfaces include ProE and AutoCad. We can also support the following CAD software programs: I-DEAS, SolidWorks, Unigraphics, Catia, Parasolid, STEP, and IGES.

Autodesk Plastics Insight is a comprehensive suite of software tools for simulating, analyzing, optimizing, and validating plastics part and mold designs. Powerful and easy to use, Plastics Insight offers a state-of-the-art solution that can be used by top manufacturers in the automotive, medical, consumer, electronics and many other industries.

Fabrik actively utilizes the flow, co-injection, design of experiments, cool, warp and shrink modules as a predictive analysis resource prior to tool construction. This complementary service optimizes part geometry and ensures a successful tool build.

Housed within our 120,000 square-foot facility, the Fabrik tooling department offers prototype and production injection molds, with all maintenance and engineering changes completed on site.

Fabrik's tooling department includes specialized mold makers, each with their own unique abilities and passion for work, and use the most modern design and mold-making equipment available. Our design specialists utilize extensive resources to create new designs, provide solutions for tooling endeavors, and complement any and all of our internal needs.

We never overlook the importance of tooling in the process of creating the best products. Our investment in our own mold making capabilities, and close association with other domestic and offshore mold making facilities, gives us the latitude needed to insure the correct design and tooling approach for each customer application.
