Protool Plastic Components have completed several metal replacement projects in the past 12 months with very impressive results.
The main driver is usually cost but there are several other incentives that should not be overlooked.
Weight saving, lower tooling costs, final product finish complete (painting, zinc passivating etc) and often multiple components can be incorporated into one part.
At Protool we work closely with material manufacturers and verify designs using finite element analysis software ensuring the product meets all expectations.
