Engineering Services

Part Design

Efficient and reliable production starts with quality engineering. Our engineering team assists customers with optimizing their part configuration from a mold design and processing point of view. Whether you have a napkin sketch, an existing part or an engineering drawing, we can recommend ways to improve the part through weight reduction, defect resolution, cycle time reduction and improved mold design.

Tool Design

Our in-house tool design expertise ensures creative and robust tooling solutions that offer value with the initial build as well as future maintenance cost savings. We can handle many complex tooling revisions, repairs, and complete refurbishments in-house.


Automation Plastics can provide valuable advice when choosing the right prototyping approach. Through our in-house capability and several outside vendors we can provide prototype parts machined, molded, or through any of the various additive process technologies (3D Printing). Whether your prototyping needs are parts for demonstration purposes, functional testing, pilot production, or built to demonstrate a new tooling or manufacturing approach, we have the experience to deliver.
