HANLON CONSULTING is Australasia’s most experienced and successful independent plastics engineering consultancy.
We have an exceptionally broad range of experience to draw on to help ensure the plastics packaging or componentry you need can be created efficiently and effectively.
We provide professional technical advice relating to:
Plastics materials technology including plastics material selection and evaluation of material performance. Selecting the correct plastics material for specific products is a critical early element of the product development process, and Hanlon Consulting have both the training and experience required to assist.
Plastic product design or appraisal and verification of your designs. We have the experience required to not only ensure the most efficient use of plastics materials and achievement of minimum product weights, but the knowledge required to optimise the product’s design for cost efficient manufacture.
Mould design and the sourcing of new moulds from a global network of potential local and off shore suppliers. Mould design needs to crucially match not just the product quality requirements, but also the long term production expectations for the product. Mould testing and approval processes must be comprehensive and robust to ensure your investment is secure.
Plastics processing technology encompassing all the elements which go into the actual manufacture of products made from plastics materials. Hanlon Consulting have the experience and contacts to assist with the selection of the most appropriate plastics production equipment, and also the equipment to supply the services required to support production equipment. We understand the systems, organisation and processes required to efficiently operate plastics production equipment.
Project management of either a completely integrated project or one part of a broader project. The consultancy can point to many of these in the past. Many of our core business skills such as planning, coordination, proactive management, communications skills, and adhering to timelines are crucial for managing projects of all types and sizes for clients.
Commercial research and the subsequent development of alternative product or manufacturing solutions as required. This can require not just innovation skills but also a deep knowledge of both plastics materials and alternative potential manufacturing technologies.
Expert witness services not only in relation to plastic products and components, but to broader aspects of manufacturing and manufactured products in general. The consultancy has a consistent track record of providing Expert Witness services for both patents and copyright over many years.
Training and technical education in the plastics industry which has been a very significant part of the history of this business. The consultancy has not only the technical expertise to develop relevant training programmes, but also the experience and communication skills to deliver this training. Training can relate to both national training standards or specific in house programmes.
