TRANSFORMING THE INJECTION MOLDING PROCESS 

Plastic Prototype Support & Injection Mold Tooling

PCI Prototype Support

PCI works with plastic prototype molding partners to create custom injection mold tools and components built with a production mentality. Quick turnaround time and cost-effective pricing allow customers the ability to order prototype components that replicate a production part's design. PCI ensures injection mold tools are built to specification, allowing the customer to have full confidence that the prototype component is capable of being tested, marketed, or even used for short term or low-volume production needs.

PCI values our strategic partnership with plastic prototype development resources to provide our customers with:

  • Single-cavity prototype tools which replicate the design characteristics of production caliber tools (i.e. similar tools design process, material selection, gating, parting line configuration, water line design, etc.)
  • Collaboration with our plastic prototype development partners on business development efforts, particularly for new programs, part development, and metal to plastic conversion projects
  • Fulfillment of the "project manager" role with respect to development work, third-party contracts for prototype tooling and low-volume molding 

These partnerships have allowed for successful tool launches at Plastic Components, Inc. and will continue to be a focus area of innovation in the years ahead. 

 

Why PCI?

We embrace the words of Thomas Edison: There’s always a way to do it better..find it. For close to 30 years, PCI has been challenging the status quo through technology, automation and engineering expertise to provide our customers with a strategic partner for their “mission critical” injection molding needs.
