How often do you source an injection molder? If you are like most companies and project managers, not very often. The good news is, once you have selected on an injection molder to work with, you are likely to stay with them for a long time as long as they keep producing quality plastic parts.
Advancements in plastic injection molding technology allow manufacturers greater flexibility and sophistication in part design. At The Rodon Group, we are continually incorporating the newest technologies to remain on the cutting-edge of molding techniques in all sectors. This commitment to growth and innovation has allowed us to continue providing the highest-quality products to our customers.
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.
One of the most common questions for those looking to source a plastic injection molder is “How much will a plastic injection mold cost?” It's one of the most important questions, since the actual mold represents the most significant expense in upfront production costs. That being said, many factors go into determining the full cost. With any custom injection molding project, your injection molder should be able to give you the final price tag. In this article, we will review the variables that can impact the cost so that you can be better informed when making a mold purchasing decision.
Ever since its introduction in the late 19th century, plastic injection molding has revolutionized the way we create plastic products. Although the technology has evolved significantly over the years, many injection molds today still fall into two main categories: hot runner and cold runner systems. Each of these systems has their own benefits and limitations which make them better suited for specific applications.
Understanding the differences between these technologies can help you have a more productive and informed discussion with your plastic injection specialist to determine the most feasible option for your unique application.
In today’s ever-evolving world of manufacturing, plastics are being used to make everything from automotive body parts to synthetic human body parts. To create critical components and ensure optimal performance, many manufacturers choose to make use of plastic injection molding.
When creating a product that requires molding plastic parts, you have several processes to choose from, depending on the type of application and type of part you want to produce. Injection molding and blow molding are the two most popular ways to produce high quality, cost-effective plastic parts.
But before you dive into researching different molders and manufacturers, you want to arm yourself with the differences between these two processes. Here's a quick guide to help you differentiate:
With hundreds of commodity and engineering resins available on the market today, the material selection process for plastic injection molding jobs can often seem daunting at first.
At The Rodon Group, we understand the unique benefits and properties of different types of plastics and work closely with clients to find the best fit for their project.
This review of plastic resins will focus on the essential characteristics of polymers with some examples of popular resins and their applications.
