PLASTIC INJECTION

With 70 years of thermal system designs Acrolab is the expert in both heating and cooling plastic injection applications.  For your thermoset applications we can give you turn key solutions, from heating design and junction boxes, to heaters and thermocouples.

  • Running cooling applications and can’t get cooling lines into a specific area?
  • Are you increasing cycle time due to 1 problem area?

No problem, our unique heat transfer products, such as, our Isobar® heat pipe, ensures that any heat is rapidly directed away from the hot spot(s).  This provides efficient and uniform cooling to specific areas or the entire mold surface, resulting in shorter molding cycles.

FILAMENT WINDING

Acrolab’s trademark Isomandrel® technology provides enhanced production capabilities to filament winding operations.

This technology allows the user to cure without the use of an oven,  which results in more efficient use of power and plant floor space. 

By utilizing Isomandrel technology, the processors now has the to achieve unprecedented thermal management control over their curing process.

ADVANCED BLOW FORMING PROCESS – QPF

Based on early research, GM, in collaboration with Alcoa, recognized the inherent limitations of SPF and moved forward with the commercialization of an advanced blow forming process, called quick plastic forming (QPF), which takes place at even higher forming rates.

The result is a cost-effective, higher-volume manufacturing technology that is producing lightweight components for today’s automobiles.

How We Approach Your Thermal Solution

Phase 1 – Understanding Customer Challenges & Requirements

Acrolab will assign a Project Engineer that will be working with you every step of the way. Understanding customer challenges, needs, and requirements are a big part of any small or large project.

  • We will then initiate a meeting to review and understand these elements on both a micro and macro level.
  • Our Team will then request CAD data and any available technical data on the application for internal review.
  • Acrolab engineers will then review project feasibility and devise a solution(s) plan that will work best for our customers’ unique application.

Phase 2 – Acrolab Project Outline

Once a project passes phase 1 an Applications Engineer(s) that is best suited for your application, will be specifically assigned to the project.

  • Acrolab’s Application Engineer(s) will complete a full project review of all elements including supplied CAD data, technical data, requirements, costing, feasibility.
  • Once a full review is completed application recommendations and solution(s) are formulated for you, in an easy to understand presentation format.

Phase 3 – Consultation & Discussion

Your Project Engineer will meet with you to review, step by step, Acrolab’s findings, recommendations, technical data, solution(s), and information related to you application.

  • This ensures there is no miscommunication with any information sent.
  • In many cases Acrolab will have multiple solutions for your application showing both advantages and disadvantages of each.
  • Our Project Engineer works with your team from start to finish. They understand any constraints you have for this project and will consult with you on which solution will work best for you.

Phase 4 – Solution & Customer Feedback

Once you have reviewed the recommendations with your Project Engineer and your team has had time to review the information, it is time for your team to choose a solution that best fits your application and constraints.

  • Our Project Engineer will then relay this information to our engineering team to get started on design and development.
  • Once the design and development is completed your Project Engineer will review this with you for approval.

Phase 5 – Execute & Deliver

Once approval has been given Acrolab’s team will execute on whatever deliverables that are required. Deliverables will vary depending on the project, since every customer, and application is unique.

  • Depending on the project Acrolab will design, manufacture, assemble, build, test, and verify according to customer and project requirements.
  • Once the project has been designed, built, and tested all data will be reviewed with your team prior to shipping to ensure all expectations of the project have been met
  • Upon your satisfaction of any testing results Acrolab will then ship/send the project to you and follow up in the near future for any discussion/results you would like to discuss.
