Automotive parts manufacturing service

VMT has been providing rapid injection molding to leading manufacturers automotive components for more than 20 years.  We understand that the components we produce are on the critical path for prototype evaluation and pre-production testing for a range of automotive applications such as switchgear, trim, fasteners and brackets, and induction components.

Due to the importance of this role, we work very closely with our clients’ design and procurement teams throughout each project to assure we deliver quality components according to a schedule they can count on. We also follow our streamlined production process to make sure the right people are in place from design to part.

automotive components

VMT is one of the leading providers of rapid injection molding services worldwide due to our extremely experienced design and manufacturing teams, proprietary manufacturing expert system, and state of the art injection mold making and molding system in our ISO certified U.S. facilities.

We produce prototype injection components in as little as five days, which allows our clients to compress time to market, increase development iterations, and remain flexible longer before committing to high volume tooling.

We mold any commercially available polymer commonly used in automotive applications including PPA, PPS, PEEK, PAI, and others from leading material manufacturers. We also provide insert molding, overmolding, and a range of standard and custom textures.

Quality You Can Trust With Inspection & Material Verification

Our team of international managers and engineers have experience working with some of the world’s most prestigious electronic equipment manufacturers. Not only do we offer world-class manufacturing services to support you in our ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified facility, but we also offer complete raw material verification through our advanced incoming material testing laboratory. This is crucial for meeting the stringent safety certification requirements for electronic and other powered devices.

Manufacturing Solutions

We also appreciate that you need agile manufacturing solutions when bringing new electronic products to market. To support you VMT has no minimum order quantities or minimum order values. You can invest your resources in developing rapid prototypes and then quickly transition to rapid tooling and larger volumes when you’re ready.

Common Electronics Manufacturing Services

Polyurethane Vacuum Casting

Many great products start out as prototypes that are used to test the fit and function of a design, and transition from a few engineering models to eventual mass production.

Polyurethane vacuum casting is one of the most valuable rapid prototyping methods. Not only is it fast and economical, but the quality of the copies is equal to that of regular production parts – without the investment in hard tooling.

CNC Machining

Advanced multi-axis CNC machines produce unlimited volumes of finished parts from virtually any commercially available raw stock, and they do so quickly and with great accuracy.

We use CNC machining to make enclosures as well as engineering-grade fittings in support of electronic devices made from a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as hard plastics.

Pressure Die Casting

When it’s time to ramp up to larger volumes in metal, there is no better solution than pressure die casting.

We provide pressure die casting in capacities from 160 to 1300 tons. This means we can make cases in aluminum, magnesium or zinc for electronic products that need to be in strong and corrosion-resistant housings. Pressure die casting is also a common way to make heat sinks for higher powered electrical devices like transformers and audio equipment.

Plastic Injection Molding

Our injection molding capacity ranges from 10 ~ 1,000 tons. We are also able to provide micro-sized battery cases, light pipes, mechanical components and fittings for the miniature electronics market. On the larger end of the scale, we regularly make plastic housings and other components up to 800 mm on a side – big enough for the most ambitious applications.

In addition we also machine our own standalone mold tools in P20, NAK80, H13 and S136 steel. And we can offer P20 rapid tooling at the same price as aluminum 7075.
