FPE engineering systems are fully integrated from design and engineering, prototype and validation through process development to full steady-state production. A fully equipped quality laboratory offers a wide range of physical and environmental testing capabilities. The company’s eight manufacturing locations together have available plastic injection molding capacity from 40T to 3000T and are able to support low and high volume production runs. Extensive secondary operations provide a multitude of finishing for decorative appearances.
Traditional and Cleanroom Molding
As a key core process at FPE we offer press capacity ranging from 40T through 3000T and Class 8 (10k and 100k) cleanroom molding. We process most engineered and commodity based resins and with our focused tool standards we are able to provide quick tool changes and less scrap at start-up resulting in productive molding runs and more available productive uptime.
Decorative Metal Stampings
Our Synchronous Transfer Press Line offers our customers decorative or functional type parts in either aluminum or steel with blank size capability up to 17”x 12”x 0.030”. With our unique in-line finishing operations we are able to provide various decorative appearances such as brush, lathe or bright with a final acrylic powder top coat for surface protection.
Chrome Plating Plastic
As key core process at FPE we offer chrome plating on plastic parts in either Bright or Satin Finishes. With our automated process and large plating tanks we plate parts for some of the largest applications in North America including Class 3 and larger Truck Grilles. Plating is typically done on ABS and PC+ABS resins as directed by the customer and their performance requirements.
