The Beaumont Test Specimen Molding Advantage

  • Quick turnarounds – average job time is 2 days after receiving material
  • Test specimens are molded from standalone tooling
  • No family molds are utilized
  • Performed on high-precision Sodick molding machines – these machines use a two-stage screw to plunger plastification-injection system, providing extremely precise plastification and injection control of the plastics melt
  • Prior to molding, hygroscopic polymers are dried to manufactures recommended conditions and moisture levels are verified with a Computrac Vapor-pro system
  • Test Specimens are molded using material supplier recommended mold and melt temperatures
  • Mold filling and packing are optimized per BAP’s scientific approach to injection molding
