Metal to Plastic Conversion
Optimize Your Operations with This Simple Process
What if you could reduce weight, lower production costs, and reduce the risk of corrosion for your metal parts? With metal-to-plastic conversion, it’s never been easier to hit these goals and streamline your operations. Our team can reverse-engineer your product, and create a plastic clone that replicates the function and performance of the metal part.
Our proven metal-to-plastic conversion was first introduced in 1992 when a local farmer decided to go from 38” wide rows to 22” narrow rows. For this, he needed smaller corn snouts, but didn’t want to create them using metal. His experimenting with rotationally molded polyethylene resulted in an innovative prototype that increased efficiency within his operations. Now, we regularly create poly snouts and other plastic parts for a variety of industries. Learn more about our services below, or reach out to our team with questions.
Advantages of Converting Metal to Plastic:
When you choose to convert metal to plastic, you’ll benefit your bottom line in more ways than one. What’s more, your design integrity will never be compromised, giving you the peace of mind that your equipment will work as it should.
Reduced Part Weight and Lower Production Costs
Plastic parts are lighter than their metal counterparts, reducing overall weight and improving equipment efficiency. Additionally, the lower cost of raw plastic materials and the efficiency of rotational molding processes contribute to significant cost savings.
Greater Flexibility and Diminished Risk of Corrosion
Plastics offer greater flexibility, allowing for intricate shapes and detailed features that can be challenging to achieve with metals. Additionally, plastics are resistant to corrosion, eliminating the need for protective coatings or treatments.
Eliminate Secondary Operations and Reduce Waste
The inherent design flexibility of plastics allows for complex shapes and features in a single manufacturing step, minimizing the need for additional machining or assembly. This efficiency results in reduced waste and quicker time to market for plastic components.
