Oxford Polymers® in New Britain, CT can evaluate and troubleshoot problems with your production process, tooling or part geometry and determine potential solutions. In addition, we can help you optimize your molding efficiencies. Listed below are a few of the services we can provide:
Evaluate and rectify deficiencies in a product's performance
This could be material, design or processing based. Products can fail to provide the intended level of performance over their design life. This can fall into many categories such as premature wear, excessive creep and deflection, long-term deterioration due to weathering, UV yellowing, part cracking due to inappropriate design or incompatible chemicals, etc.
Assist OEMs around the globe to conceptualize, develop and commercialize their polymer
Our interaction may involve engineering in residence programs, onsite training courses and plastic product design mentoring. We can deliver in-house concept development workshops with your team.
Perform failure analysis on polymer-based products
We work at all levels of the supply chain (material supplier, mold maker, molder and end user) to find the root cause of a problem, and provide quick solutions.
Mold design critiquing for your specific resin / process / and part geometry
Recommendations for optimum cavitation, gating, runner systems, tool steel, actuation within the mold and venting are typical. This can carry on to mold build management, start up and debugging.
