Prototyping and Tooling
In order to support your ever-changing application requirements, you need a partner that responds quickly and efficiently to your specific needs.
At Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics we understand just how much is riding on your new process requirements. To help you navigate through these
challenging projects we offer the following prototyping services:
• The ability to take your concept (or ours) and develop technical drawings, prototypes and product pricing in very short order to help with
your validation or process requirements.
• The ability to provide product design, material development and product testing assistance to help ensure your internal systems are met.
Our application and tooling engineers are ready to assist you and your staff in transitioning application concepts to process reality.
The success of a finished product depends on many factors during development, production and assembly. The most critical elements include product
design, raw material choice and tooling for manufacture.
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics offers in-house tool-making capability at two of our North American facilities to provide prototype and production
tooling for our extrusion and molding processes. Our tooling centers are staffed by experienced journeymen toolmakers and are equipped with CNC
(computer numeric controlled) electronic distance measurement (EDM), mill
and lathe machines with state-of-the-art design support software.
