Diversified Plasticsʼ value-added services save customers money

Minneapolis, MN–September 1, 2011–Diversified Plastics, Inc. helps their customers save time and money by providing a single source for plastic parts production, from design assistance and mold production, to injection molding and assembly. Typically, a company may need to use several vendors to accomplish what Diversified Plastics is able to offer in a single location.

The company specializes in injection molding of high-precision, close tolerance, small-to medium-sized plastic components for medical device, filtration, aerospace, electronics and other industrial markets. With its tooling division, Diversified Plastics can produce high-quality molds for preproduction and small-run jobs up to multi-cavity production tools. They have the expertise to produce very small, high precision injection-molded parts that are used in the medical device and aerospace industries. With a positional accuracy of ± 0.0002 inches, their mold-making equipment can create complex mold designs for a multitude of applications. Another aspect of the companyʼs value-added services is the ability to machine parts out of plastic tube, rod or bar stock from materials that are either difficult to mold or when the required parts volume is very low.

Diversified Plastics uses 85- and 110-ton electric plastics injection molding machines for molding high-precision parts. These machines are capable of producing small, high-precision components. The electric presses are ideal for clean room molding and the larger machines can be used for molding thin-walled parts and running difficult, high performance materials such as Ultem®, PEEK, and Torlon®.

Many companies in the medical device industry require special assembly and packaging operations be performed in clean room conditions. An ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000) clean room enables Diversified Plastics to assemble, sonic weld, and package parts all in a clean room environment. Additionally, they will inventory and deliver the customerʼs product as needed.
