In-house Services

Injection moulding is not always a fully automated process as machine operators may be required at the press and operations may have to be completed outside of the production cycle.

Toolsprocesses being completed out of production cycle

At Pentagon we realise that customers can require additional services to produce their finished components. This can be to reduce initial cost to meet a particular budget or to achieve a feature which cannot be completed in standard tool configurations.
