We use best-in-class design and engineering practices consistently to bring your products to market profitably.

We have dedicated teams that provide support and utilize best-in-class design and engineering capabilities throughout the manufacturing process, from concept and design to workplace layout. Our use of the latest CAD technology accelerates design evaluation and revision processes, and allows data to be used for the creation of stereo lithography models; finite element analysis; seamless tool design and manufacture; and moldflow simulation analysis. In addition, we adhere to OQPQ protocols and employ strict 5-phase APQP discipline, with supporting DFMEA/PFMEA and other tools, so our customers can bring their ideas to fruition efficiently, effectively, and profitably. We model ourselves after OEM studio methods and time lines and are able to efficiently develop and adopt new application processes that bring value to your business.

Tooling | EG Industries - Leader in Plastic Injection Tooling, Molding, and Finishing

We design and build tools that run at the fastest cycle times and produce parts at the highest quality consistently.

EG Industries offers extensive in-house mold building from single cavity, pre-production, and fast development molds to high cavitation complex valve-gate runner systems and two-shot molds. Our scientific molding methodology ensures that the molds we build will perform and deliver consistently to the high standards and optimized processes for which they were designed. It’s no surprise that the tools we build, time and again, invariably run at the fastest cycle times and produce parts that meet exacting quality specifications. Our U.S. and China locations are staffed around the clock to exceed customer requirements in project timing, quality, and complexity at the highest value.

We have highly sophisticated injection molding machines to meet any need, no matter how demanding.

Our plants and facilities process most engineered and commodity-based resins. Our plastic injection molding capacity extends from 25 tons to 3000 tons for different types of injection molding needs including insert molding, over-molding, and two-shot molding. Our Class 8 (10K and 100K) cleanroom facilities are environmentally controlled manufacturing cells for molding, assembly, and packaging. Moreover, we have the ability to quickly adapt our production lines to tool changes with less scrap at start-up, so customers benefit from longer production runs and greater availability of productive uptime.

As a partner in your success, our goal is to deliver finished products that go beyond customer’s expectations.

EG Industries offers several secondary operations including assembly, metal stamping overlays, heat staking, ultrasonic welding, and RF welding. Our assembly process for any application is optimized through value stream analysis, lean manufacturing, and total quality management. We also provide chrome plating, silk screen printing, deco painting, bar code labeling, graphical emblems and trim, painting, and other services. Our wide range of painting, paint testing, and decorating capabilities utilize the latest advances in technology and processes. These capabilities include, but are not limited to, solvent borne painting 1K and 2K; secondary color application (decorative paint masking); mold-in color and color at press;  powder coating; hot stamping; and pad printing.

Assembly

Whether it’s a simple manual assembly or a highly automated, multi-assembly process, we provide customers with a quality product at a value-driven price. Utilizing value stream analysis, lean manufacturing, and total quality management, we optimize the assembly process for any application. From single fasteners and plastic sub-components welded together, to highly visible lens made of polycarbonate or clean room assemblies, our SPC lot traceability and bar code capabilities give customers the knowledge and confidence that the products they receive have been assembled with the greatest of care and to precise dimensional and performance requirements.

We utilize the latest advances in painting technology and processes for a superior finished product each time.

EG Industries has a wide range of painting and decorating abilities including: Water Borne Paints (Interior); Solvent Borne Paints (Exterior and Interior); Topcoat for Chrome Plated Plastics; Two Component Paints; Adhesion Promoters; Secondary Color Application (Decorative Paint Masking); Powder Coating; Pad Printing (3 color decorations); Conversion Coating; 10-stage Aluminum Pre-treat System; Silk Printing (Screen Print); Roll Coating; Low Haps and low VOC paints; and more. We also have several paint testing capabilities such as adhesion testing (i.e., cross hatch, salt spray and humidity hardness, impact resistance, chemical testing, etc.); 60 Degrees Specular Gloss reading equipment; Paint Film Thickness Reading with Eddy Current Thickness Gauge; Spectrophotometer for color reading; Gretag Macbeth light table for color control; and Micro-Vu Video Measuring System for dirt and defect analysis.

We also provide a wide range of decorative branding options to meet various finishing requirements.

Through our partner Auld Technologies, we offer complete solutions for decorative products including trim, dome emblems, overlays, coatings, badges, buttons and decorative labels. Dome labels, in particular, can be customized to have several brand-differentiating attributes and effects. These labels have a 3D jewel-like lens with a luxurious feel, and can have a satin or gloss finish. Ranging in thickness between 0.030″ to 0.090″, dome labels are self-healing and ultra-scratch resistant making them highly durable. Designs can be screen, photo, or digitally printed and various types of adhesives can be used (e.g., pressure-sensitive, permanent or removable) based on your application. We supply a variety of markets such as automotive, consumer electronics, plumbing, sporting goods, medical and more.

Packaging

We offer complete packaging systems such as blister packs, vacuum seals envelopes, and a variety of other methods to ensure durable delivery of products that are easy to open. We also recently added a MC5-Digital drive Multivac R240 packaging machine to one of our 6 existing clean rooms. This versatile and cost-effective packaging system will provide increased speed and reliability on the production floor. The Multivac has a full transfer traversing coder and printer, along with an automatic cutting system, that produce precisely sealed and easy-to-open packaging ideal for medical supplies and devices.
