Dental Imaging Equipment

Profile Plastics has the ability to meet the stringent quality requirements of the medical industry, one of our core markets. The challenge put forth by this customer was to provide several parts for a single unit that showed no trimmed edges and was esthetically appealing.

The Profile Advantage:
Profile engineers designed the tooling for nine component parts most with articulated undercuts to achieve a finished look without visible trimmed edges when assembled. With Profile's material recommendations and the Pressure Form Process, the final parts were consistent in color, texture, and gloss throughout the unit. They also met the established UL requirements. In addition, multicolor decoration was applied in-house using an abrasion and chemical resistant labeling technique. This complex project was developed on time and on budget, enabling the customer to meet its production and marketing goals.

Challenges met:
  • Aggressive lead times from "Art to Part".
  • Conversion of the initial design to be compatible with thermoforming.
  • Points of attachments were optimized to be assembly "friendly".
  • Nine mating and matching parts developed concurrently.
