Company Profile

A pioneer and world leader of in-mold rheological control technologies, Beaumont Technologies is revolutionizing plastics injection molding. As the inventor of MeltFlipper® and other injection molding technologies, Beaumont offers a broad range of plastics engineering services, including:


Beaumont has earned a reputation for challenging accepted standards in plastics flow and mold design as well as hot and cold melt delivery systems. Our approach is to apply critical thinking and engineer science-based solutions that enable our customers to mold faster and more consistently at less cost.

Beaumont’s team of plastics engineers approaches each project by questioning everything to learn how can we help our customers become more efficient and optimize part quality and molding processes to improve the bottom line. Simply stated, our goal is to enable our customers to become world class molders.

As Seen In Plastics Technology

The iMFLUX low-pressure process “breaks the rules,” such as molding thick-to-thin-to-thick in this PP demo part.

Moving Toward ‘Autonomous Molding’ with a Uniform-Low-Pressure Process
A new low-pressure injection molding process has aroused interest among molders and machine suppliers. In his second article on iMFLUX, the inventor of the process explains how it is evolving to support the overall industry goal of self-correcting molding processes that can compensate for common causes of variation to maintain consistent part quality.

Instilling pride of workmanship is a top goal of Natech’s in-house training programs. Here, head quality auditor Andrew Dunham examines electrical enclosure parts with operator Carla ____.

To Succeed in Manufacturing, Focus on Your People First
It’s not easy being a custom injection molder in the NYC metro area. For Natech Plastics, the key is developing employees’ skills and commitment.

Sodick MS100 all-electric injection molding machine

Injection Molding: All-Electric Two-Stage Machine Debuts at NPE2018
All-electric Sodick V-Line injection molding press of 100 tons is a first for Plustech.

Melt temperature increase versus backpressure and screw speed

Injection Molding: No, Backpressure Does NOT Raise Melt Temperature
It’s a classic confusion between cause and effect. Melt temperature rises when screw speed is increased. Check out this data.

Beaumont Tech Buys Material Characterization Business from Autodesk Moldflow
A trainer in mold analysis and supplier of simulation services acquires testing facilities used to obtain materials data needed for accurate simulation.

Tooling at NPE: Valve Gates & Multi-Tips Top the News
There’s no letup in development of sophisticated hot-runner nozzles and controls. Here’s news in these and other tooling products at the show.

Building 'foundational knowledge' and critical thinking skills.

Beaumont Creates American Injection Molding Institute
Beaumont Technologies , Erie, Penn., is launching an injection molding certification program, hoping to fill the yawning skills gap facing the industry with some very well-known instructors.

A New Look at Evaluating Fill Times For Injection Molding
One of the important process parameters to establish and record for any injection molded part is its injection or fill time. Research research reveals the limitations of popularly taught methods of establishing this critical parameter.

Victrex 90 PEEK for medical pipettes

High-Flow PEEK Makes Small, Intricate Pipette Tips
WEB EXCLUSIVE: An unfilled grade of Victrex 90 Series high-flow PEEK from Victrex USA was used to mold small medical pipette tips.

TOOLING AT NPE: Hot Runners & Coinjection Grab Spotlight
Tooling innovations at NPE focused primarily on multi-cavity closure and medical applications, though there was also a substantial emphasis on large automotive and appliance parts.

Brand-New Test Method Relates Material, Mold & Machine
It's the first material characterization method developed specifically for evaluating the injection moldability of a plastic melt.

New Way to Characterize Moldability Of Resins & Part/Tool Designs
Experienced injection molders have long known that a resin’s melt flow index (MFI), measured under very low-shear conditions, provides very little information about how it will process under many orders of magnitude higher shear in an actual mold.

Why Multi-Cavity Molds Fill Unevenly
Balanced filling is critical for making identical parts, achieving high CPKs, holding tight tolerances, and getting “good” data from design of experiments.
