Plastic Injection Molding, Design & Engineering Services

Industrial & Consumer Pool Products

At Custom Plastic Developments, we have been a full-service provider of custom plastics manufacturing since our inception in 1972. From concept and design to full production runs, we specialize in fulfilling the most demanding specifications for challenging, close tolerance projects. Our ability to work with complex designs within fast turnaround times is well illustrated by the project here. A customer in the industrial and consumer pool products industry required custom fabricated pool heater housings. With our reputation for highly accurate large part precision molding, we were a perfect fit for this project.

Manufacturing these housings entailed a number of challenges. These products were large and needed to be constructed in various sizes. In addition to meeting multiple specifications, they were complex in design and required multi-cavity molding and multi-action tooling to complete. Fabricating these housings required our full range of state-of-the-art equipment, including mold building with our CNC machining and EDM equipment. These housings were molded with filled polypropylene (PP) and Cycoloy PC/ABS. When the molding phase was complete, a number of secondary operations were completed, including drilling, tapping, fabrication, decoration, and assembly. These housings also required multiple finishes, including matte, textured, and polished. Each housing was completed at the highest levels of accuracy, reaching tightest tolerances of ±0.005".

To ensure our customer's specifications were met, these housings went through rigorous quality assurance procedures. These included QC inspection with CMM equipment, as well as impact/destructive testing. We also needed to control any possible product warpage throughout the process. Our client was very pleased with our results. This was a high volume order, and we were able to complete it at the highest levels of quality while providing quick turnarounds for design changes and the overall production order. We completed over 25,000 of these housings within lead times of 4 to 6 weeks, depending on requirements.
