From actuators and radio assemblies to sensors, switches, and instrument cluster components, Phillips-Medisize’s expertise in the automotive market makes us a knowledgeable and trusted resource for the successful development of concepts from drawing board to assembled product.
The best design for automotive manufacturing
At Phillips-Medisize’s two design development centers, our experienced team members facilitate seamless project flow through industrial design, design engineering, CAD, finite element analysis, Moldflow® analysis, rapid prototypes, models, and stereolithography.
By employing value-added work cells that include automatic material supply, close tolerance injection molding presses, process monitoring systems, and custom automation built in-house for assembly and packaging, Phillips-Medisize is able to ensure adherence to rigorous ISO 9001 and TS 16949 quality standards, tight control to specifications, and part repeatability for high-volume and high-cavitation production.
Metal Injection Molding (MIM)
In addition to plastic, Phillips-Medisize has been working with the metal injection molding process for over 16 years. Known for producing functional components with highly complex features, superior surface finishes, excellent corrosion resistance, a reduced need for secondary operations, and material properties comparable to wrought, MIM is widely accepted as a cost-effective alternative to the die casting, investment casting, machining, and press and sinter processes.
Phillips-Medisize continues its commitment to unsurpassed quality, while addressing increased demand for exceptional decorative finishes, including laser etching, in-mold decorating, electroplating, pad printing, multi-shot molding, and hot stamping, all of which are complemented by automated assembly, testing, and distribution to complete program requirements.
From under-the-hood components found in pressure monitors to plastic and metal molded parts for steering and braking systems, Phillips-Medisize’s complete capabilities provide a one-stop-shop for functional molding applications.
Automotive OEMs rely upon Phillips-Medisize’s expertise in functional molding to consolidate components and enhance product functionality and ease of assembly. Phillips-Medisize is able to expedite the manufacturing process without compromising quality by utilizing smart work cells, which include RJG process monitoring systems, automated in-line quality tests, and robotic acceptance or rejection systems.
With over 437,700 square feet of manufacturing space, Phillips-Medisize is equipped to handle high-volume programs numbering in the millions.
With strict adherence to lean manufacturing, the entire product development process is streamlined to improve profitability, increase customer satisfaction, and minimize lead time.
With extensive experience in design through manufacturing, decorating, and assembly and strict adherence to Six Sigma quality efforts corporate wide, Phillips-Medisize project teams have just one goal in mind – to meet or exceed customer’s expectations for quality, cost, delivery, and overall service.
