Pressure forming is a good alternative for large-scale parts that have a high degree of detail. Typically these parts would be produced using injection molding, which requires expensive molds. Using pressure forming, parts can be produced with the same detail on the cosmetic side of the part as is done in injection molding. This customer came to Profile Plastics with just these requirements. They needed a quick go-to-market production solution for large cosmetic shrouds with a high degree of detail.

The Profile Advantage:
Profile's engineering and sales teams advised the customer on part design to achieve ease of manufacture, ease of assembly and a high degree of detail. A large, sharp logo was achieved with pressure forming and a wire-EDM insert in the mold. In addition, a metallic look was added to the logo through the process of hot stamping. Profile Plastics met the customer's time frame and design criteria all within the targeted budget.


"Profile Plastics has always provided our business with proactive feedback and offered their industry experience to ultimately improve our project's goals and to maximize our part quality and cost."
