Injection moulding complex plastic parts is an advanced process. It takes highly specialised equipment, operator skills and engineering expertise to manufacture products that require multiple materials and have to meet higher and technically tight tolerances.

At AKI, we've got more than 20 years' experience in the industry, so we have the capabilities to produce more advanced products that can reduce assembly times and speed up production. This translates into higher quality, lower costs and more satisfied customers.

The process of working to a technical tight tolerance can be customised for any project in order to maximise quality and easy of manufacturing. This partnership begins with communication -  if we are to design the best possible process, we must first understand your vision for the product. Working with the design team from the very start lets us put our engineering know-how, creativity and advanced equipment to good use, transforming that vision into the perfect custom moulding process that's productive, efficient and cost-effective.

Some of the complex mouldings we can produce:

  • Complex thread forms
  • Complex shapes
  • Distortion controlling in glass-filled materials
  • Very tight tolerance work +/- 0.02mm
  • Complex sealing faces and core features
  • Processing polymers with various filters for dimensional stability
  • Small bore holes
  • Thin wall
  • Managing shrinkage and fibre orientation
  • Process FMEA’s

This recent case study is a perfect example of our ability to work with a customer from concept to realisation through the development of a complex product under very tight technical tolerances - read more about it here.
