Powder Coating Facility
With one of the most state of the art and highly efficient powder coat lines in the Pacific Northwest, National Products Inc. applies a high quality finish to many of its cast products. Nearly fully automated, castings are washed, dried, powder coated, and cured without the need for human intervention, and without introducing human error. Both speed and efficiency lend themselves to a quality finish and lower product cost. With the powder coat facility next door to the die cast facility, castings can be produced and coated all within 24 hours allowing for quick turn around times and product delivery. Using state of the art processes, NPI has taken every opportunity to assure that all processes are achieved in the most environmentally conscious manner.
Die Cast Facility
National Products Inc. has a modern and efficient aluminum die casting facility. Machines are capable of running molds having anywhere from 1 to 24 cavities, with the possibility for additional capacity depending on customer needs. Complete with all the support equipment necessary to create a look and finish free of sharp edges or corners, RAM products are not only strong, but are also safe. Castings of high strength and quality are produced in significant volumes to meet the ever increasing needs of the growing RAM customer base. The customer can choose to use products cast from common RAM dies or take full advantage of the in-house design team to create a custom mold to produce parts specific to their application. NPI will create and store the mold and produce castings as you need them. Freedom to choose, freedom to create, and freedom to grow are what sets NPI apart from other manufacturers.
Composite and Rubber Injection Molding Facility
NPI has a modern composite and rubber injection molding facility with a vast inventory of machinery to accommodate customers’ needs. NPI has 16 composite and rubber injection molding machines including a state of the art, 2 color co-injection machine for running high volume parts efficiently and cost effectively. Each machine is capable of running thousands of parts per day and can be ramped up depending on customer demand. Most of the injection molding machines are equipped with fully automated robotics and the latest controller electronics. Our composite facility is equipped with a fully automated vacuum fed material delivery system.
Shock and Vibration Testing Facility
Installed in 2009, NPI has added a new state of the art shock and vibratory test center. Our electro-dynamic machine allows for both vertical and horizontal orientation of test samples and high stress testing with up to 50g’s of applied force. Accelerometers are attached to the mounting system as well as the device to achieve real time feedback and accurate report generation. We will be expanding on these capabilities in 2013 with the addition of a new 100g horizontal crash sled capable of the most brutal military crash test standards and re-deployable air bag simulator.
