Engineered Polymers (Resins)
We design and engineer custom solutions that didn’t exist yesterday.
Ferriot’s institutional expertise in resin selection to support innovative solutions represents the true measure of our capacity. With a veteran team of engineers, we design and engineer custom solutions that didn’t exist yesterday (except in the minds of our customers).
Design for Manufacturability
Our experience covers the knowledge of good Design for Manufacturability, a comprehensive understanding of all thermoplastic resin families and injection-mold design expertise. Our experience covers all kinds of resins. Typically, we stock more than 150 varieties of resins at any given time in our 200,000-square-foot facility, conveniently located to the major markets of the Midwest and East Coast.
As one of the few “systems houses” in North America, Ferriot can step in at any point in the manufacturing process because our engineering, design, molding and tooling and finishing technologies can be applied to products in concept development or at any other stage of production.
Among our services, we work with resins that require hot-oil systems to support high mold temperatures.
Ferriot’s manufacturing services extend through final production, complete with custom color, cosmetic finishing and assembly.
One recent example: A leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of fuel pumps wanted to replace certain metal fuel-pump components with durable plastic parts that were resistant to gas fumes. To convert to plastic — and save money — the OEM needed optimal functionality and durability of the newly developed thermoplastic components, coupled with designs just right for efficient manufacturing.
Ferriot’s designers and engineers worked with the OEM to develop the proper thermoplastic olefin system. The new component, for the boot of a gas nozzle, has since proved its durability and consistent functionality in the field.
