Sourcing Specified Engineering Polymers – More Easily
There can be no manufacturing process to rival plastic injection moulding when it comes to producing parts with such diverse physical properties.
The key to this is the wide range of polymers available. If you are injection moulding, you probably process a wide range of engineering thermoplastics.
From Polycarbonates to Polyamides, the list is long. But with so many individual brands, it can be difficult to know where to source them all.
Different polymer manufacturers also often have different arrangements in different countries with different distributors.
This approach suits the manufacturers well but often not the moulding companies themselves.
However, you are left to do all the legwork to find your materials and probable already have enough to do.
You inevitably need to set up accounts with multiple suppliers.
If they don’t know you, you may not get the pricing or service you need.
But sometimes it seems you have little alternative.
