Replace Metal with Plastic – Cost & Weight Savings

The Protool Plastics Group have completed several metal replacement projects in the past 12 months with very impressive results.

The main driver is usually cost savings 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 The Protool Plastics Group we work closely with material manufacturers and verify designs using finite element analysis software ensuring the product meets all expectations.

Design feedback is available during the complete process from initial idea to fully signed off product ready for production.
