MANUFACTURING

Our Process

We operate molding presses ranging from 22 tons up through 550 tons.  The on board process control systems maintain the level of repeatability required for the parts we manufacture.

We utilize precision injection molding machines, as well as, sprue pickers and robots for repeatability, efficiency and product quality.  Additionally, our  material handling system allows us to control our resin from a single location.

West Michigan Plastics repeatedly begins with a machine process parameter that receives a setpoint value and tolerance. Key product characteristics are monitored and evaluated in real time using the latest SPC data collection software.
