As any manufacturer can tell you, not all parts are created equally. While a standard washer can be simple and fast to manufacture, other parts — like numbered knobs on ovens, for example — may require requiring multiple production processes or highly specialized services.
If your part isn’t designed with the proper materials, it can lead to poor performance — or even failure — of the application it’s used in. Take the marine industry, for example. Plastic motor parts in water vehicles must be able to withstand
Let’s talk about thermoplastic injection molding — not just about the quality, or the cost value or fast turnaround. We’d like to take a deep dive into the complete plastic injection molding process — from design all the way to packaging and shipping. Utilizing
There’s no better time to invest in plastics manufacturing, according to recent reports in FuelFix and Natural Gas Intelligence. The shale boom and access to abundant natural gas is spurring cheaper prices and reshoring opportunities for plastics manufacturers. Now, “America is one of the most attractive places
Compared to conventionally machined metal parts, plastic injection molding is more cost-effective, offers better design flexibility, and produces products that are lighter. In fact, plastics can reduce the weight of parts by 50%, produce less scrap material, and can be formed into more complex shapes
A lot is at stake when you create a new injection mold. If you get the design just right, you will have a mold that cycles quickly, increases productivity, lasts the test of time, and, because it does all of these things, improves your bottom
