ABS Plastic Injection Molded Decorative Covers for Sewer Industry

ABS Plastic Decorative Covers for Sewer Industry

A client from the sewage industry based in Bergen, New York recently contracted Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association to manufacture a series of high gloss, ABS plastic decorative covers used to conceal a pump within a macerating toilet system. Employing an 1,100 ton Sandretto injection molding machine with robot part removal, we were able to mold the part complete while upholding a (±) .005 inch precision tolerance, trimming any flash as needed. Using our advanced heat staking technology, we then placed the molding into a fixture and staked the magnet into this molding.

Based on client supplied prints, each cover was measured 10.25 inches in length, 9.79 inches in width, and 3.60 inches in height. The covers were constructed to be cupola white. To ensure our premium products met precise client supplied specifications, we performed a series of thorough inspections. We examined each product to make sure the color matched the sample provided. We then ensured that there was no short shots, gas traps, or sinks in the show area. We also inspected each part to ensure there were no scuffs and scratches caused by the staking process.

After manufacturing was complete, Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association packaged and labeled all parts, readying them for delivery. Within a three week turnaround period, Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association was able to manufacture and deliver a series of ABS plastic toilet pump covers to our client in New York State. Successfully meeting our customer's expectations for quality, we now produce 10,000 covers for this client per year.
