The process

Plastic powder is packed into a mold which is then placed into a high-temperature oven which turns on two axes. The powder melts, leaving a layer of plastic on the inside surface of the mould. The mould is then cooled to allow the plastic to solidify. Finally, the mould is opened to free the perfectly formed piece that has just been produced.

During the manufacture of the piece, a multitude of elements can be included such as: metal threaded inserts, molded threads, openings, graphics, etc.

In addition, almost all finishes can be created with the help of various textures and/or paints. The process also permits the production of complex forms in a variety of material, while controlling the thickness of the walls.

The advantages

  • Cost of tooling is quite low in comparison with the injection or blow molding process;
  • Low cost of pieces;
  • Permits the production of small or large quantities;
  • Infinite possibilities for surface finishing with textures and 3D lettering;
  • Unlimited choice of colors;
  • Control of thickness in the walls;
  • FDA approved;
  • Great production flexibility: metal inserts, molded threads, openings, etc.;
  • Simple or complex pieces, either small or large;
  • No welding or joints
