Thunderbird Plastics holds a wide range of presses, between 400 and 2250 tons of clamping pressure. This allows us to mass-produce objects as small as our canning sleeves for the construction industry (60 grams) to as big as our plastic pallet (8 kg). But this wide range also accommodates a big window of opportunity for limitless new designs.



Thunderbird Plastics can provide full engineering and design services to help you develop professional drawings and 3D models. Our on-site designer will take you through the design process, from “simple idea” to final drawing, to optimize your product for production through plastic injection moulding. From concept to completion, our staff will work with you to make your project a success, starting at the prototyping and development stages, to final production and assembly. Our 40-years experience can guide you through each stage to make sure you have your product on budget and on time, helping make your custom plastic part in the most cost-effective manner. We can help you develop a new product, or improve an existing one. Our staff works closely together, balancing all aspects of a design or logistic decision to be considered in unison and quickly revised. Our customers are therefore offered complete and effective help in making their decisions about design, prototyping, budget, logistics etc. quickly.

We’ve much improved the early design phase with the use of rapid prototyping by additive manufacturing (or 3D printing). This helps the customer get a good idea of how the final product will look by observing and handling a model that mimics the final product. This also helps to detect design flaws before the manufacturing process is initiated, saving costs. The development time is reduced considerably, hence rapid prototyping proves to be a great addition to the process whenever possible.
