FOD Tool Control Solution
One emerging industrial issue is that of managing FOD with strict Tool Control. Plastic Engineering has developed Tool Control methods that are effective for managing both Foreign Object Damage and the cost of Tool Control. Find out how we can help cut costs while setting up Tool Control methods in the workplace.

How It Works
As Easy as 1, 2, 3!
Purchase the lightbox system for on-site use to quickly photograph tools or parts.
Submit photos to Plastic Engineering by email or by using our secure FTP site. Our team will then convert the photo to a CAD file using our custom software solution.
After the file has been converted, it will be uploaded to a CNC router or waterjet to produce your shadowboard, also known as a tool or part drawer. PlaSteel will retain a database of your files for future use as needed.
Our Patented Materials
This is nothing new, except that we can cut it to match the specific requirements of your tooling and part kitting needs. STATA-LITE will break down over time though, just like any other foam.
This is our answer to standard foam break-down and FOD concerns. STATA-CELL will not break down like foam, and the difference in price is negligible. STATA-CELL is our most popular solution.
- Lime Green
- Light Blue
This material sits between STATA-CELL and STATA-LENE in both cost and performance. Like STATA-LENE, this material is chemically inert. It is also exceptionally rigid and will never break down. (You could run it over with a truck and it would laugh at you.)
- Light Gray
- Light Blue
STATA-LENE is our answer to the ESD dilemma. This will be our recommendation for any clean room or FOD Critical environment. As a result of material cost, this option generally costs about twice as much as our STATA-CELL.
- Black (Blue ESD Mat is used to create two-toned effect for visual management)
