Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to work with customer clients on niche projects to meet specific custom injection molding needs. This has allowed us to develop deep expertise in a wide range of plastic injection molding services other providers lack. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a plastic injection molding partner with the sheer breadth of experience you get with Global Plastics.

Your Vision Combined with Our Expertise and Innovation

During the decades that have passed since our founding in 1992, Global Plastics has made a huge variety of injection molded parts and components. Whatever it is you’re envisioning, chances are good that we can make it. We work with you in close collaboration to turn your vision into the plastic injection molded pieces you need. Below are some examples of our wide-ranging experience.

HVAC Components

Global Plastics makes hundreds of thousands of plastic injection molded components every year for use in the HVAC industry, and we’ve been doing that for many years. In many cases, these are components that would otherwise have to be made from much more expensive steel. The challenge is in identifying and using the right plastic materials that can resist the corrosion so prevalent in HVAC equipment.

Industrial Gear Work

Thanks to the huge variety of high-performance plastic resins available today as well as long-fiber compounds, industrial gears made of plastic have come a long way. High-quality, durable, precision plastic gears can be produced through the injection molding process for a wide range of demanding applications. Complex part geometry, high-performance specifications, and larger sizes are now possible with Global Plastics because of the expertise, equipment, and materials we have at our fingertips. The key to precision gears is in the process controls that allow for higher accuracy and a tighter window across a range of variables in order to not only meet but in many cases to exceed your requirements.

Electronic Enclosures

In the world of electronics, every circuit board needs to be contained and protected by a plastic “box” or enclosure of some kind. The possibilities here are nearly endless, including cases for handheld electronic devices, NEMA 4 cases, pocket box enclosures, mobile box enclosures, taper end enclosures, shell cases, desktop enclosures, LCD cases (including angled cases, sloped bottom cases, etc.), instrument cases, precision miniature cases, flange and wall mount cases, open front enclosures, and pretty much any other permutation you can dream up.

Metal to Plastic Conversions
As plastics first came into vogue as a viable replacement for other materials, the primary shift was from wood to plastic. Think, for example, about radio cabinets that were made of wood or steel in the 1920s that by the 1930s were being made of plastics such as Bakelite and Catalin because it was less expensive. As the types of plastics available grew and improved, they could be substituted in for all kinds of metal parts. Converting a part or component from metal to plastic is something that still occurs with surprising frequency, and Global Plastics has handled innumerable metal to plastic conversion projects over the years.

A highly engineered plastic part is going to be much lighter in weight than its metal predecessor, as well as more flexible for better performance and functionality. Is metal to plastic conversion feasible for what you have in mind? The design engineers at Global Plastics can help you determine this with a feasibility study that examines three essential factors: design, manufacturability, and return on investment. After all, the point of metal to plastic conversion projects is to gain a variety of benefits, including efficiencies in cost, performance, weight, durability, and aesthetics.

Simplification: From Multiple Parts to One

Because of the versatility of plastic materials, Global Plastics may be able to identify opportunities to take multiple parts or components you need and combine them into a single part, thereby reducing costs by decreasing the number of molds that need to be tooled, as well as the time and cost of labor for assembling multiple parts.
Global Plastics: Versatility in Custom Plastic Injection Molding

Although it sounds cliché, it really is true that if you can think it, more than likely we can make it. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, we can help you quickly determine whether plastic injection molding is the right approach for producing your vision. The technological advances that have occurred plastic injection molding lets you think outside the box to discover what’s possible with plastic.

While it may be tempting to go with a low-price plastic injection molding provider, they don’t offer the full range of expertise or provide adequate control over the total delivered cost (TDC) to take your project from initial concept to ongoing production runs and beyond. Global Plastics a full-service injection molding partner who manages your project through the entire life cycle. With a full-service, in-house tooling department and a wide range of value-added services, we serve as a one-stop solution for all the plastic injection molding services you’ll ever need. We look forward to hearing from you through the contact us page of our website to discuss your needs and how we can meet them.
