OUR PROCESS AND ADDED SERVICES

Your processes are only as efficient and reliable as the companies you trust to design, engineer and keep them running. That’s why cost savings and productivity are always the end goal of our processes. Dollins has an experienced team on hand that has years of design, engineering, testing, Q&A and repair or service under their belts. No matter where your project falls in the process, you’re in highly capable hands.

PLASTIC PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN

Product design and development is a service provided by Dollins’ design team. We are able to assist our customers with the initial design, modification and optimization of plastic part designs. In particular, Dollins concentrates on ensuring the parts are moldable and functional based on customer specifications. This includes round, rectangular, square, IML, and tamper evident parts.

With our vast experience we are able to help our customer’s integrate successful programs. Whether it is a specialty part, IML package, a container and lid project or reducing an existing parts weight, Dollins has leading engineers and designers to ensure your product will stand alone from the competition.

CUSTOM ENGINEERING

Creative design and quality engineering are the foundations of any successful mold. Dollins is engineering-based, using the latest CAD software to produce advanced and technically sound designs. Over the years, we’ve created many mold design patents.

And they start with you. Right from the start, we learn your needs and use them as a guide to manufacture the best product possible through the highest level of molding technology. This includes plastic part design too. Let us enhance your design from a molding perspective with our 3D software with mold flow and filling analysis.

PROTOTYPING

Our R & D team is your team. With Dollins, you have access to extensive knowledge for building prototype molds to help develop new products. We can manufacture a prototype stack used now for product testing and later as a production stack.

TESTING

We expect you to push our molds to the limit. So we make sure they live up to your expectations with intensive testing in our state-of-the-art facility. We try and duplicate your actual plant conditions as close as possible for real-world performance testing.

After each mold is tested, the plastic parts are carefully inspected and measured to make sure they meet your specifications. A full report is issued with plastic samples for your approval and reference.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

From the design review on through manufacturing, right to final testing, each step is completed correctly. Everyone involved on our end has a responsibility to ensure that our strict tolerances are met with continual inspections and adhering to our promise of quality first.

  • All components are inspected in our QC lab to assure all dimensions are within tolerances specified
  • All molds are tested and checked to ensure that they are producing the highest quality parts
