With rubber injection, sand casting, metal fabrication, composite injection molding, and die cast facilities all within one half mile of each other, coordinating and developing new products is trouble-free. You can trust that National Products Inc. will continue to provide products and support to the industries and customers that have made NPI a success.

Product Design and Development

NPI offers full service product design and development services to our customer base. With a talented design staff and access to a large catalog of patented and patent pending products, NPI can quickly and efficiently assist our OEM partners realize their product ideas.

3D CAD Design and Prototyping

Ensure your products are designed and tested using the best possible practices available, including SolidWorks CAD software, FDM rapid prototyping, direct metal casting prototyping, mold design and manufacturing, electrical engineering, laser cutting, stamping, and shake and vibratory testing.

Powder Coating Facility

With one of the most state of the art and highly efficient powder coat lines in the Pacific Northwest, NPI 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 coating facility next door to the die cast facility, castings can be produced and coated all within 24 hours allowing for quick turnaround 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

NPI 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, these products are strong and safe. Castings of high strength and quality are produced in significant volumes to meet the ever increasing needs of the growing NPI customer base. The customer can choose to use products cast from common RAM® Mounts 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

This modern composite and rubber injection molding facility features a vast inventory of machinery to accommodate the needs of customers. NPI has 30 composite and rubber injection molding machines, including a state of the art, two-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 50 g’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.
