Design

With an experienced staff of designers equipped with state-of-the-art software, Rodon will accurately and promptly move your project through concept and design and into the tooling and production phase. We use AutoCAD® networks, CNC-EDM and CNC Machining Centers to meet your "if only we could" goals, as well as your needs for pre-designed components of consistent quality and cost.  The design team has an average of 20 years of experience in building and designing tools that optimize the manufacturing process.  Our turnaround time on new project concepts and designs are second to none in the industry.  Our designers work directly with our tool makers to build tools that maximize part quality.

Tool making

Rodon fabricates the best tooling in the industry and our tool warranty reinforces our claim. As long as Rodon is running a tool that we have built, there will NEVER be any repair or maintenance charges. CNC machining centers, CNC EDM and a highly technical staff ensure quality and precision from concept to completion.

We design tools for high-volume, high tolerance production for the life of your project.   Our tools are constructed from stainless steel mold bases and cavities ensuring optimal mold performance and durability.  For qualified customers, tool financing is available.

Manufacturing

Our plant has 109 presses with a range of 46-400 tons, fully automated and with a full production schedule (24 hours, 7 days a week) during most of the year to maximize efficiency.  Each press is microprocessor-controlled and self-diagnostic, with capacities from fractional to 43 ounces, and clamping force from 46 to 400 tons. Quality control checks of product tolerances, color and physical appearance are made at every step of the manufacturing process.

Material selection

There are hundreds of commodity and engineering resins on the market today.  For over 50 years, The Rodon Group has helped clients select the best possible resin for each product's application.  Once a material is selected, we can offer high-volume purchase agreements on most resins.

Rodon also runs FDA‐regulated products using resin sources certified by FDA, RoHS, REACH, and NSF.  As a manufacturer of children's toys, we are acutely familiar with the standards required for product safety.

Fulfillment and packaging

We pride ourselves on providing Just-in-Time manufacturing to suit the fulfillment demands of each client.  Quality control checks are performed as components are sorted, weighed and sealed for stock or shipment. In keeping with our commitment to automation and conservation, our servo robots provide custom stacking and packaging to minimize cartons and freight charges.
