INSERT & OVER MOLDING

We can mold around inserts in either our horizontal machines or our vertical machines with rotary tables. Our vertical rotary machines are great for insert molding because they accommodate shuttle molds with one top and two bottoms. An operator can load inserts into one bottom while the other bottom is engaged with the “A” half; effectively cutting your cycle time in half.

OFFSHORE PRODUCTION

In conjunction with our overseas counterparts, we have the ability to offer competitive offshore production for your programs that still maintain the quality of our in-house molding standards. These programs are always managed by Indiana Plastics and offer high-quality, finished parts that are delivered to your door at competitive costs.

OFFSHORE TOOLING

In conjunction with our overseas counterparts, we’ve been offering high-quality offshore tooling options to our customers since 2003. Utilizing our solid distribution partnership agreements with European-owned tooling shops in Asia we stand behind our offshore tooling 100% once it reaches our facility.  Indiana Plastics supervises and signs off on all tooling designs. We also send U.S. personnel overseas to supervise every mold sampling before the tool ships.

PROTOTYPE TOOLING

  • Aluminum or P20 quick-turn tooling
  • Handloads or mechanical slides/lifters
  • Average delivery of 15-20 days for molded parts
  • Prototype/Production “bridge” tooling options available
  •  

TOOLING

Along with our sister company, Kruis Mold & Engineering, we’ve been in the business of building custom injection molds since 1958. We have a full-capability tool shop in house to help take your company’s product from its design stage all the way through the tooling process and into production.

IN-HOUSE FEATURES
  • Moldflow and warpage analysis available
  • High-Quality, Close-Tolerance Tooling (+/-.0001″)
  • Prototype Tooling (Fast Delivery, High-Quality Builds)
  • Production Tooling: 3 Plate Cold-Runner, Hot-Runner, Shuttle Molds, Etc.

  • Mitsubishi MV-1200-S Wire EDM
  • Mitsubishi ED-2500M Hole Popper
  • Blanchard Grinder 72″ Diameter x 32″ High
  • Cincinnati Centerless Grinders
  • Lathes


PROTOTYPING

We pride ourselves in being a one-stop shop for all molding needs as evidenced by our mantra:  Prototyping to Production.  Let our engineering team help make your design more manufacturable, robust, and efficient with our years of experience.  We build prototypes without shortcuts, meaning your real, molded prototypes parts are out of a production resin, have all of the features you want, including slides and side action, and are molded by our capable process technicians using scientific molding principles.  When you choose Indiana Plastics you’ll have parts in hand that BEST represent your future production versions!

OFFERINGS
  • Printed Parts: SLA, SLS, FDM, Multi-Jet Fusion
  • Prototype Tooling: Aluminum, P20, even H13
  • Bridge Tooling: Prototype tooling designed to run tens of thousands of cycles while your production tool is being built
  • Machined Parts
  • Insert and Overmolding Prototypes
  • Average delivery of 15-20 business days for molded parts!
