Plastics Are Our Specialty
Some engineering firms specialize in metals. Others “specialize” in everything. The Madison Group focuses all its resources and energies into understanding the intricacies and subtleties of plastics. We learn how they interact with designs, materials, manufacturing processes, installation techniques, and service environments, and then put that knowledge to work for you.
The Madison Group can help you take advantage of opportunities and help you avoid failure. Some of the ways we help our clients:
- Material Selection and Design Consultation
- Materials Composition Analysis and Characterization
- Mechanical Property Evaluation
- Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
- Product Integrity and Safety
- Reverse Engineering
- Service Life Evaluation
- UV Radiation
Not only do we understand how a small change in temperature, for example, may affect a plastic's strength and stiffness over time, we understand how to analyze and modify one or more elements of the chain of events that occur when producing plastics - from manufacture to the point of failure, whether it's during mold design, processing, installation, or in-service use.
The Madison Group devotes all of its resources to understanding the intricacies and subtleties of plastics.
Plastics vary widely in how they respond when subjected to mechanical loading, temperature, and chemicals. While these are favorable properties when designing a component, relatively minor changes in part geometry or material composition can dictate if a final product is functional or flawed. The Madison Group engineers see problems daily because potential issues were not recognized in the design stage. Partnering with us prior to manufacturing can help to avoid potential problems and ensure a successful project.
Using our vast experience in processing, mechanical behavior, and failure of plastics, The Madison Group can evaluate your plastic part or design.
