As well as providing proprietary project solutions, Plastiape can offer support service to companies intending to engineer products of their own conception, joining project development at any phase.


The Research and Development Centre deals with all activities necessary for designing, engineering and industrializing products, whether simple single-piece items or complex devices with multiple components and designed for assembly with total automation and functional control of every unit produced.

Plastiape has decided to maintain all its development and industrialization activities within the company, concentrating them in a single workgroup. Faithful to a logic focused on skill and customer service, it requires those dealing with the development of a product to be completely aware of the manner in which every project detail may affect the functionality of the moulds and production equipments. The designer must also know how to translate the qualitative requirements of the product into adequate control specifications, so that the item will be ensured stability of performance throughout its life-cycle. Only a global vision of the entire design and production cycle can provide the customer with a rapid, reliable service, reducing error margins to a minimum and combining technical project effectiveness with product manufacturing economy.
