Through the use of computer-aided design (CAD) technology, we work with customers to create an exceptional plastic injection mold design. While maintaining high quality in the part itself, Aline also works to ensure that construction can be performed efficiently, which lowers cost to the customer. Aline includes this service at no extra cost to the customer.
No one should have to pay extra to get what they want.
To benefit from Aline’s skill and technology, submit a basic sketch, drawing, sample, or prototype. Aline components will produce a detailed CAD model which, upon approval, can be used for rapid prototyping.
Aline takes preliminary concepts from customers and uses CAD to create a three-dimensional model within a file. A file is then converted into a specific working format.
The format represents a 3-dimensional surface as an assembly of plastic parts. The file contains the coordinates of the vertices and the direction of each piece. Every file that comes through Aline Components is prepared with maximum care and efficiency; however, larger and more complicated files require more time in both pre-process and building.
Aline works quickly, never sloppily, to ensure your plastic part is designed and manufactured correctly. The correct balance of accuracy and manageability produces a useful working file.
Each file is then broken into thin cross sections. Aline uses these cross sections to adjust the size, location, and orientation of the model. The ability to adjust the cross sections is crucial to saving time during this process. CAD modeling allows for the adjustment of size, location, and orientation. The result is better rapid prototyping, which results in a faster turnaround and a lower cost for the customer.
