Custom Moulding


At Measom Freer, we put the customer first. We believe you should be able to source the exact plastic product you require – without having to make sacrifices. That means not settling for a colour that doesn’t suit, a capacity that isn’t quite right or a plastic that fails to meet your commitment to the environment. For both our own and our custom moulding we only work with responsibly sourced recyclable and recycled thermoplastics.

As well as manufacturing and stocking recyclable plastic bottles and packaging we also specialise in the design, development and manufacture of bespoke products. Attention to detail and a personal touch are paramount to the service offered and we thrive on producing a solution for even the most demanding packaging challenge.

 

What is custom moulding?

Our custom moulding service involves designing and producing a plastic product exactly to your specification and requirements.

We can manufacture bespoke packaging, flexible polythene bellows, technical mouldings, parts, components, bottles, jars, boxes, caps, plugs, measures, spatulas, scoops, spoons, tubes, fasteners and more.

Types of Custom Moulding we offer:
  • Blow Moulding -  Plastic blow moulding is a manufacturing process for forming hollow plastic parts like bottles and containers. Here at Measom Freer we use Extrusion Blow Moulding; a hot tube of plastic material, called a parison, is forced through an extruder and captured in a water-cooled mould. Once the mould is closed, the parison is cut, the mould moved over to a blowing station, then air is blown into the top or the neck of the container pushing the plastic out to meet the cavity within the mould. When the hot plastic material is blown up and touches the walls of the mould the material cools rapidly and the container maintains its rigid shape. One of the key benefits of blow moulding is that it can be used to manufacture complex shapes – something that can be of tremendous value for such things as product branding and identity We can utilise this process for capacities up to 2 litres and it is ideal for plastic bottles, containers and unusual items like plastic bellows. We can use most thermoplastics for blow moulding, including PVC, HDPE, rHDPE, LDPE, PETG, rPETG, Bioplastics, rPP and PP, with up to 2-litre capacity.

  • Injection Moulding -  Plastic injection moulding is the process of melting plastic pellets (thermoplastic polymers) that once molten, are injected at pressure into a mould cavity, which fills and solidifies to produce solid parts like caps,measuring scoops, components and parts. This process can be used with most recyclable thermoplastic materials, and we can mould up to a shot weight of approximately 350g. Injection moulding is able to produce large volumes of quality parts at a high rate of speed and with accuracy.


How we work

Our Design Department and In-House Toolroom are equipped with the latest CAD/CAM facilities for component design, 3D visualisation and modeling. We can manufacture prototypes of your required designs for you to evaluate before full production - so you can be confident the final product will look exactly as you’re expecting and function as required.

Within the Design Department and Toolroom we continually invest in cutting edge technology (pardon the pun!) and modern equipment allowing us to manufacture tooling to exacting British Standards.

We can accept most file formats, including IGES, SLDDRP and STEP. We use Solidworks for our design which is a hugely flexible system which can generate 3D models for the customer to view with a downloadable viewer (eDrawings).  This helps the customer see thier designs and helps the design process go smoothly.

Need a competitive price? We always strive to offer fair pricing and cost-effective services, which is why we have 24-hour production cycles to ensure maximum output at economical prices.
