We’re diversified, so you don’t have to be.

We’re diversified, so you don’t have to be. Our MultiFab Technology combines the capabilities of Fabrication, Machining, Injection Molding, and PolyUrethane Casting under one roof, enabling us to manufacture any component using the necessary plastic for the application. This results in shorter lead times, one stop sourcing, and more adaptable engineering solutions.

Benefits that Plastic Components Offer

  • Noncorrosive
  • Self-lubricating
  • Low friction
  • FDA/USDA approved
  • Cost effective
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Durable

CREATIVE ENGINEERING

From design, to prototyping to process engineering, our experience with the wide range of plastic solutions allows us to solve any plastic component challenge. We also work closely with the leading chain manufacturers in the industry. We visit job sites across the country to review installation methods and to assess our customer’s plastic component needs. We’ve even hosted end users at our facility to detail our unique plastics fabrication and engineering processes and our proven results. We are creative, engineering-minded problem solvers. And it shows.

Custom Fabrication

Diversified Plastics has the skills and equipment to employ a variety of custom fabrication and engineering processes for a variety of materials, from plastics to metals. This enables us to tackle projects that integrate disparate materials and take on complex forms. We can handle single plastic component assemblies as well as hundreds of units. We offer a complete range of service from plastic welding to vacuum forming to parts assembly. Our experienced plastic fabricators are cross-trained on all processes and work in the most advanced software interfaces for 3-D fabrication. We employ a variety of advanced equipment and processes in custom fabricating. We have a vacuum forming machine up to 3’x4’, large ovens up to 5’x12’ for heat forming, and sheet bending equipment up to 10’ long. We also have hot air hand welders, extrusion welders, and hot plate sheet butt welders, and are able to do overlap shiplap welding and spin welding.

INJECTION MOLDING

Injection molding and overmolding is an extremely flexible process that dramatically reduces waste and cost when creating parts especially in mid- to high-volume runs. Large or small, complicated or simple, Diversified Plastics can deliver the molded plastic components you need, on time and on budget. Our process begins at ground zero with in-house design and fabrication of custom tooling and molds, including low-cost aluminum mold inserts. Once we’ve created the molds and completed a test run, we begin full-line production using a variety of materials.

MACHINING

Machining out of solid engineered plastic stock is the ideal way to create parts for applications that require tight tolerances and uniform finish in low- to mid-quantity runs. Inside our 25,000-square-foot facility, you’ll find CNC mills, lathes, and routers, along with precise cutting, drilling, welding, bending, and forming equipment. Using our state-of-the-art, computer aided equipment, we machine plastic components to your specifications.

MULTIFAB TECHNOLOGY™

We combine the capabilities of Fabrication, Machining, Injection Molding, and PolyUrethane Casting under one roof to create an innovative solution for our customer. We call this MultiFab Technology. Our MultiFab capability allows us to create a superior product at a more competitive price and enables one component to be manufactured through several operation processes. MultiFab offers our customers a cost-effective solution when they want to convert to plastic components from metal or other multiple materials.

THERMOFORMING

Forming plastic sheet material with heat and pressure is a very cost-effective and versatile process with low set-up and tooling costs, making it efficient for low volume runs.

URETHANE CASTING

Pouring liquid urethane into molds and allowing it to cure is a proven method for creating parts in a multitude of shapes, sizes and durometers. Creating urethane components and sheets is entirely different from working with traditional plastics, and Diversified Plastics team members use proprietary processes and protocols to maximize the versatility and varying hardness of urethane. Our urethane parts will meet your specifications not only for shape and size, but also for hardness. In fact, we can cast urethane components in durometers from 40A to 75D.

Mold it or Machine it

Discover if your part is a candidate for molding with us! We look at the most cost effective solution through analysis of your part, how it is used and the quantity being manufactured.

Top 10 Reasons to Convert to Plastics

Without compromising the needed characteristics of metal, wood or glass, plastics provide strength, reduce weight, avoid abrasion, resist corrosion and provide additional flexibility in production which secures their use in many industrial applications.

Deer Island Wastewater Treatment

The Project: The Deer Island treatment plant, operated by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, is the public wastewater treatment facility for the city of Boston. The plant was undergoing an extensive refurbishment, replacing all of its chain and sprockets. Diversified Plastics, pre-qualified by the independent design engineering firm, earned the award of an equipment order. By the end of the one-year contract, more than 4,600 SS715C23T sprockets for head shafts and corner shafts will have been delivered, as well as all the polyurethane...

UHMW-PE: The Ultimate Plastic Material?

It’s time to discover UHMW (ultra-high molecular weight) polyethylene and its many advantages: Extreme durability and abrasion resistance. Low friction and lubricity. Corrosion resistance in extreme environments. Superior structural strength. Easily machined, fabricated, or injection molded. In fact, thanks to its unique molecular/structural properties, we find it superior to other types of plastic as well as metals. Contact us to discuss if UHMW-PE is the right solution for your plastic parts and components.
