WE SPECIALISE IN HIGHLY TECHNICAL PLASTIC INJECTION MOULDING UP TO 2.5KG IN ALL THERMOPLASTICS AND FINISHES

Fern Plastics custom plastic injection moulding process produces a bespoke plastic mould product to suit exact specifications are requirements. Plastic injection moulding is the process of melting plastic pellets, which are injected into a moulded cavity when malleable.
The malleable plastic fills the mould, solidifies and the final product is achieved. The process of plastic injection moulding is fast, and creates an identical product with high precision, regardless of the complexity of the design. test

injection

Through utilising state-of-the-art injection moulding technologies, we manufacture injection moulding goods with great efficiency, close tolerances and en-masse. Our prototypes and end production goods are produced with a quick turnaround, and thanks to continuous reinvestment, we offer cost-efficient tooling and unit costs, even for smaller
quantities.
