Miles Platts design team love to be involved early in a project- that way we can advise on industry best practice to ensure a component is designed for manufacture to give optimum results.
Our core business is supplying years of defect free mouldings from our Mouldshop, from tools that we’ve designed and manufactured in our in-house toolroom and therefore it’s essential that the component design is the cornerstone of everything that we do.
We can either offer advice to a customer who is experienced in the design of plastic components to help improve the component to meet dimensional requirements or take a concept from a sketch and turn that into a finished component design.
Polymer selection, wall thickness, draft, feed point and ejector locations are the common starting points but as we have considerable experience working in the electrical and coil-winding industries then we quickly become involved in insulation requirements, creepage and clearance distances, start & exit wire slot design, terminal pin insertion and perfect layer grooves to name a few.
