Plastic injection molding is the primary process for manufacturing plastic parts. Plastic is known to be a very versatile and economical material that is used in many applications. Complex geometries are possible and limited only to mold manufacturability. Your computer monitor, mouse and keyboard are injection molded plastics.
Injection molding involves taking plastic in the form of pellets or granules and heating this material until a melt is obtained. Then the melt is forced into a split-die chamber/mold where it is allowed to cool into the desired shape. The mold is then opened and the part is ejected, at which time the cycle is repeated.
Investment casting is a simple alternative to many fabrication
processes. Livingston Tool can help you create the part that you need while reducing your machine finishing, material, and assembly costs. With Precision Investment Castings you can achieve, in one process, what might otherwise require several steps to obtain the components
Rapid Prototyping is an economical alternative to pre-production
part runs. Alloy parts can be made in 2 weeks or less. Send us an STL, IGES, or STEP file. You can use this for size studies, assembly, mechanical properties and testing or whatever your needs might be.
