Polymer selection is one of the most important steps in the part design process. At JDI, we are experts in assisting our customers in selecting a resin that is best-fit for their part. By getting involved in the pre-prototyping stages of a part’s design, we eliminate this learning curve for customers and therefore bypass the expenses and labor that come along with it.
Parts can be designed around many different purposes; we are able to assist no matter what that purpose is. Below are a couple of the most common special requirements that we deal with:
Replacing existing metal parts with a polymer alternative is a very common action that companies are taking across many industries. Some of the main benefits of doing so are:
- Production savings
- Weight reduction
- Parts consolidation
- Corrosion resistance
- Longer tool life
Materials used in the medical and automotive industries often need to stand up to more demanding requirements than others. Whether the requirements are based on durability, chemical resistance, or agency/company approval, we are able to source a material.
Thermoplastics, throughout many years of development, have become excellent materials for electronic parts. These resins can be formulated to either conduct or resist electric current, as well as prevent static electricity production.
Molding some of these specialty polymers is truly a science. The process used in molding has a large effect on the molecular outcome of the part. JDI’s team members are experts in both processing these types of materials and certifying their integrity through our tailored quality control processes.
