    Products to Meet Your Requirements:

    Expert Polymer Design and FEA

    Expert Polymer Design and FEA

    Leverage our design review services to ensure manufacturing feasibility. Using our expertise and FEA knowledge, we can evaluate critical engineering factors including:

    • Location of splits
    • Ejector pins
    • Gate positions
    • Date wheels
    • Wall thickness, flow and shrinkage

    This will optimise your design and reduce waste without compromising the strength and functionality of your parts.

    Full Range of Polymer Materials

    Full Range of Polymer Materials

    At Goudsmit UK, we offer an extensive range of post moulding and assembly options to create your final product. Leverage our vast experience in the volume manufacture of thermoplastic injection moulded components, foams and extrusions to find the ideal solution for your application.

    • Injection moulding: While we employ many standard materials such as nylons, ABS, HIPS and acetyl, we comfortably accommodate less common polymers. Your parts can also be over moulded or insert moulded in addition to the standard method.
    • Extrusions: Our material range for flexible, rigid and co-extruded parts is vast. Typically, the material for flexible extrusions is PVC which can be modified in several ways. For rigid extrusions, we offer other polymers like ABS, HIPS, PP, PE, PC, PTEG, PMMA and PS.
    • Foams: We can supply you with polyurethane (PU) foam in a variety of different forms including; semi rigid flexible foam, integral skin foams, rigid foams and over moulded foams.
    Extensive Polymer Finishing Capabilities

    Extensive Polymer Finishing Capabilities

    The versatility of plastic components allows unlimited possibilities for finishing. Whether it is for mechanical or cosmetic operations, we offer a range of services.

    Our main goals are to deliver high dimensional and density stability for your products with an excellent quality finish on visual parts, repeatedly. At Goudsmit UK, your final product can be tailored using the following procedures:

    • Mechanical operations: We provide annealing for components that need behaviour modification to suit your application. Count on us for ultrasonic welding, gluing and heat staking of components to allow proper assembly. To create very complex features that could not be moulded, we offer post machining. Surface finishing allows a high polish to be achieved on components.
    • Cosmetic operations: If you need to apply logos and markings to components, we provide pad and screen printing. Our cosmetic finishes also include rumbling, painting and sandblasting.
    Multiple Tooling Processes

    Multiple Tooling Processes

    Fully aware that tooling is essential to meeting your specifications and product performance, we work to get you the right solution.

    As each tool is unique to a specific application, we partner with a tooling expert to deliver quality results every time.
