Engineering

Our expertise and know-how is from years of creating products using a wide range of materials, design requirements and manufacturing challenges.Our engineers fully support the customer during every phase of every project.

Industrial designers typically focus on function, appearance, and ergonomics. HTI Plastics’ design engineers add a vital criteria; designing for manufacturability.

We pride ourselves on our extreme attention to your specifications and project details, and deliver a design that is moldable, which is what you should expect from us.

Whether designing parts or tooling, we utilize the most advanced software and tools, including:

  • CAE Analysis through SOLIDWORKS Plastics
    • Fill Simulations
    • Shrink / Warp Analysis
    • Fiber Orientation
    • Shear Stress Analysis
    • Weld Line Analysis
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • SLA / SLS Models
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Process Development
  • Translation with major CAD programs through IGES, STEP, DWG and DXF format

Our engineers also are well versed in converting parts made in other materials. Converting wood or metal constructions into plastic provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Lower total cost
  • Light weight
  • Weather resistance
  • No rusting or denting
  • Ability to mold in Inserts
