Plastimold is an ISO 9001:2015 certified quality manufacturing facility, but goes above and beyond those requirements. Our processes ensure that our product is delivered on time and with zero defects. Inspection equipment is regularly calibrated and inspection reports are logged for each job. Our semi-automated Mitutoyo CMM allows us to check parts quickly and accurately.
Documented Inspection Process For Accountability
Each part produced in our facility undergoes a first article inspection. The first article inspection is performed based on our quality checklist and criteria from our customers. Together we will define what is acceptable as a quality part and generate a part sepecification. Parts are checked for dimensional accuracy, functionally, key features, and cosmetic defects. Rejected parts are quarantined, reground, and recycled. Once customer approval is received on the sample parts, the job is scheduled or immediately begins production.
Once the job is in production, in-process inspections are done at predefined intervals. Parts are randomly sampled and inspected to verify they are in compliance with the part specification. Inspection information is stored in our automated enterprise resource planning system. Any part or mold issues are noted and will be addressed during the run and again at the end of the run before the mold is stored. Good parts are shipped and bad parts are reground and recycled.
Lifetime Mold Guarantee
We’re confident in the quality of our work and will guarantee any tool we build for life. As long as we're running your tool, Plastimold will supply an unlimited amount of parts.
- Our injection Molds are built with extreme high tolerance tool metal conditions. This eliminates the metal to metal shock during the molding process that reduces the mold life and usually results in mold repair.
- We use only quality mold components from our qualified supplier list
- Plastimold manufactures and maintains all tools in our in house tooling room. Each mold is inspected and maintained before and after production.
- We run your parts on both electric and hydraulic molding machines with advanced sensors. This eliminates over shooting the part which can cause mold damage by smashing parting line and cores.
Lifetime Mold Guarantee Terms
Mold and Parts must be manufactured at our facility. We build it, we run it, and we supply parts. Plastimold will not release molds to customers that have an open balance.
