For over six decades, The Rodon Group has provided innovative manufacturing solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. As an ISO 9001:2015 certified plastic injection molder, we offer high-quality custom parts in high volumes and at low costs to clients in the following industries:
A mold is a hollow form typically made from stainless steel that has plastic injected into it to manufacture a plastic part. The plastic is inserted into the mold cavity, which is a hole in the mold shaped like the desired part. Molds are only used in mass production because of the cost involved in designing and manufacturing them. Because molds are critical to the production process, it is essential they are accurately made.
The Rodon Group expands facility to now include custom, large part plastic injection molding capabilities.
As plastic injection molding methods continue to advance and evolve, allowing for enhanced flexibility and more sophisticated customization options, molding companies must be able to stay ahead of the curve in order to offer clients the latest technologies and highest-quality end products that suit their needs in the changing market.
Turnkey manufacturing is a process where one company oversees all aspects of a project's production from beginning to end. They handle all project phases: starting with the initial design phase, and progressing to machining/tooling, then to quality assurance, and finally to the manufacturing, packing, and shipping stage of production.
Manufacturers across the country benefit from sourcing plastic injection-molded parts from a high-quality turnkey manufacturer. On this page, we discuss a few of the best practices regarding the plastic part acquisition process, as well as some of the design possibilities you can achieve when working with a trusted turnkey plastic injection molder.
Rodon uses innovative automation processes to provide superior solutions for windows and doors. Since 2010, our technicians have used 3D design, tool fabrication, plastic injection molding, and robotics technology to craft the most economically molded components on the market. Beyond customized product solutions, Rodon stocks high-quality standard window parts as well. Fabrications made from nylon, polypropylene, celcon, vinyl, and similar materials are produced for high rates of weather and thermal resistance.
Plastic injection molding has a language all its own, and with hundreds of unique terms, it can be difficult to learn the language. To help, we put together a list of the 15 more commonly used terms to know when discussing plastic injection molding, mold parts, machinery, materials, and problems. We hope you find this to be a useful resource.
Injection Molding Terms:
Resin is the raw material used to create the finished part in the plastic injection molding process. With hundreds of commodity and engineering resins available on today’s market, the material selection process for plastic injection molding may seem daunting at first, so research your options carefully, and consult with an experienced plastic injection molder to help determine the ideal choice.
The cost and quality of manufactured parts rely on the accuracy and speed at which they’re produced. Industrial manufacturing uses plastic injection molding to keep material costs down while maintaining the capability for high-level production. The key concept is accuracy, especially for industries that require intricate or complex parts.
Plastic injection molding is an extremely versatile method of producing plastic parts and has multiple advantages over other methods of plastic molding. Not only is the process simpler and more reliable than others methods, but it is also extremely efficient. Both of these are primary reasons why it has become a standard process in virtually every industry demanding high-volume components and parts.
After 62 plus years of experience in the industry, we have heard virtually every question a customer could ask. To help you make an informed decision on your plastic injection molding project, we’ve outlined some of the most common questions – and their answers from our previous blog articles– below.
