From Conception to Completion
At Formero, we’re able to work with you from prototype to production, reducing lag time in communication between multiple suppliers, and eliminating the Blame Game often played when working with multiple companies.
Injection Moulding Experts
Using injection moulding technology we are able to create pre-production, short-run and mass-production parts in a wide range of plastic and elastomeric materials.
Our capabilities include CAD design, CAM, CNC machining, single & multi-cavity tools, Moldflow®, insert & over-moulding and finishing.
Our experienced Melbourne-based team will walk you through the entire process from:
- Picking the right type of injection tooling for your project
- Selecting the right plastics
- Design validation
- Final product quality assessment
Working closely with you we’re able to provide a service that is cost-effective, timely and reliable.
Prototype Injection Moulding
At Formero, we understand that successful product development requires more than just high-volume production. That’s why we offer prototype / short run injection moulding—a preferred method that not only helps engineers and designers confirm part quality but also delivers real-world parts quickly.
Prototype injection moulding serves as a crucial bridge to production, minimising risks and enhancing product validation long before mass manufacturing begins. It’s an invaluable step that ensures your designs are thoroughly tested and perfected before entering the production phase.
Prototype and short run injection moulding is ideal in many situations where rapid entry to the market or pre-production samples are required. Whatever your design stage, Formero is here to support you with our comprehensive prototyping services.
Benefits of Using Injection Moulding for Prototyping:
Cost Reduction: By leveraging injection moulding for prototyping, we help you reduce overall costs associated with the prototyping phase.
Functional Testing: Our process facilitates functional testing using end-use materials, providing you with accurate insights into your product’s performance.
Faster Feedback: With Formero’s prototype injection moulding, you receive product feedback faster, enabling you to make timely adjustments and improvements.
Minimised Challenges: Anticipate and address unforeseen challenges early in the development process, minimising disruptions during production.
Formero is committed to delivering excellence in both high-volume production and prototype injection moulding. Contact us today to explore how our prototype injection moulding services can elevate your product development journey.
Injection moulding is the process of injecting molten plastic into a steel tool to form your parts. We have access to a wide range of plastic and elastomeric (rubber) materials and can use filled materials. We also manufacture two-shot and insert-moulded parts.
- Glass-filled PC, ABS, Nylon
Plastic injection moulding tools are integral to modern manufacturing. We specialise in both low volume and high-volume quantities. Our team will assist you throughout the tooling design process, including:
- Parting lines, gate locations, ejector pins
- Moldflow analysis
With a huge range of production plastic and elastomeric materials, we utilise traditional technologies such as machining and EDM directly from your CAD files to quickly create tool inserts. These parts can have complex geometry, undercuts, threads, etc.
