Injection Moulding Services

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Your trusted specialists

If you’re looking to minimise production costs and produce plastic parts with precision on a quick turnaround time, injection moulding is a great way to do it. We will guide you through the process and ensure your products are produced to exacting standards. We have a wide variety of plastic polymers to chose from and over fifty years of helping clients. Ledwell’s design and set-up process is robust and will give you peace of mind and exceptional value. Because injection moulding is such a fast process, it’s perfect for high-volume production runs from 100 parts upwards. The higher the run, the lower the cost, making injection moulding an extremely cost-effective way to produce repeatable products at scale. Ledwell have been providing injection moulding services since 1968.
WHAT WE DO?

How injection moulding works

We start every project by listening carefully to our customers. When we’ve worked through the initial stages to confirm the right design and materials, we will then custom-make the mould to suit your design. Using specialist injection moulding machinery, plastic pellets are melted and then injected at high pressure into the mould. Once the plastic has solidified, you’re component is made. Moulds can be made from aluminium, steel, pre hardened or hardened stainless steel. The type of material used to produce the mould will vary depending on what the requirements of the project are.

Process & Project Management

Our team will work with you through the following stages of our process to ensure we deliver top-quality service and top-quality products.

Request for quote
At the start of any project, we’ll schedule an initial consultation to listen and understand exactly what you’re looking for. We will sign an NDA and review your CAD files.
01
Technical advice
Drawing on decades of expertise, we’ll think carefully about the design for your tooling and offer advise to ensure you have the best and most cost-effective solution for manufacturing and materials.
02
A transparent quotation
We’ll explain your quotation face-to-face so you know exactly what you’re paying for. Each quotation includes itemised tooling and part prices, plus a guaranteed timeline before you’re liable for repairs.
03
The order is received
Once the order is received your project plan will be fully detailed. Your project manager will explain, in detail, your project plan and timeline together with our service level agreement.
04
Design review
As we move through our design process we will carry out regular design reviews of the part for injection moulding and the tooling. Our DFM will ensure the part design and tooling are fully optimise for moulding, cost and quality.
05
Tool design agreed
Once the tooling design is completed we arrange a meeting to discuss and explain the final design. As part of the above DFM review process above we would have already advised you of design improvements.
06
Weekly review and updates
You project manager will hold regular project reviews and updates with you so you know what is happening and are aware of any project time line changes.
07
Trials and Tests
To validate and verify the mould tool and component parts we will carry out trials and test. At this stage any modification will be done.
08
Approval & sign off
Once you are 100% satisfied with the trial products we will sign off.
09
QA Specifications
All quality assurance processes and procedures for the component parts will be documented and put in place. This will include all moulding and assembly work. First off masters will be approved before we move to full scale production.
10
Production and quality
Production will be scheduled and controlled using in touch monitoring software. We run a continual improvement process which will ensure quality is maintained and improved.
