Recreational Vehicles (RV)
In one application, Midwest Mold produced shin guards on RVs to protect and cover a metal frame that presented a safety issue for passengers. We prototyped two single cavity molds (one with ribs and one without) and ran 30,000 parts to validate the design and resin of choice to create a bridge to production. The customer achieved a major win with a low cost, reprocessed material that performs well.
Tooling and molding capability under one roof simplifies sourcing decisions for RV OEMs and their supply base. By putting the ownership of part quality and tool construction on one source, Midwest Mold improves our customer’s speed to market and simplify their supply chain.
