As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate global supply chains, many businesses have begun reshoring their operations. This trend is particularly prevalent in manufacturing, although reshoring rates have started to rise throughout the industrial sector in recent weeks. In fact, the Thomas Industrial Survey for April found that 64% of manufacturers are now considering reshoring, compared to only 54% who were thinking about reshoring in March.
As we've progressed from revolutionary inventions such as the light bulb on to the telecommunications age of the radio, phones, and televisions, the methods of manufacturing and product design have evolved as well. Computers, the internet, sustainable power, and everything that comes next is the driving force behind the advances in modern moldmaking in manufacturing. To understand where we are going, however, we must look at how we got here.
While plastic has been used to create a vast number of consumer products, the material’s potential uses expand far beyond children’s toys or storage containers. Today, industry experts rely on plastics to create everything from automotive parts to synthetic human body parts.
At The Rodon Group, we're proud of how far we've come in more than 60 years as a company and it's fun to look back and see the growth and change. We wanted to share that with you, so on October 10 we hosted a company video shoot to give you an inside look at our expansive facility, sustainability efforts, experienced employees, and long history.
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.
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.
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.
