Our Customers’ Top Choice for Value-Added Services

Injection Molding Presses

With Westec being an entirely in-house injection molding company, we can vertically integrate processes and be the “one-stop-shop” solution our customers need. Having our operations in one facility consolidates accountability if issues arise.  It streamlines the entire process so that completed products are made quickly and efficiently.

No matter what our customers require with their specific components, Westec can deliver expert value-added services. As an example, Westec has a customer who had a molded part that required an ultrasonically welded sub-assembly be ultrasonically welded to a base part.  The customer struggled with successfully joining the two components.  Westec’s team investigated the issues and determined vibration welding the second weld instead of ultrasonic would guarantee a stronger bond.  To ensure the assembly was functional and the part’s multiple chambers were fully welded,  each assembly was then pressure-tested and leak-tested on a custom inspection unit that examined each chamber individually. The result of Westec’s efforts was an expertly crafted component our customers could trust was made to the highest possible standards.
