The use of highly engineered resins and its resulting “Metal Replacement Technology” requires technical familiarity with both plastics and metals technologies. Parker Chomerics engineers are experienced with the requirements needed when designing a part for metal replacement. We can assist in guiding you through a thermoplastic solution that will successfully meet the performance requirements of the metal parts they are designed to replace, and in some cases even surpass the original design. Two of the most significant benefits derived from injection molding technology are flexibility and simplification for manufacturability, both leading to dramatic cost reductions while retaining or enhancing product performance. An assembly of multiple metal parts for example, may lend itself to be re-engineered as one plastic component. Instead of multiple metal parts that may require machining, assembly or painting. Our team has enabled customers to achieve a single, lightweight, cost-effective replacement package, quite often with unparalleled cost savings.
