Earth Day, observed each year on April 22, serves as a celebration of the birth of the modern environmental movement. Started in 1970, Earth Day was sparked by the country’s burgeoning understanding of how contemporary industrial practices were negatively impacting the environment. The celebration was designed to bring awareness to many of the dangers affecting the environment — air pollution, water contamination, habitat destruction, and so on — and to encourage people to take action in protecting their surroundings.
Manufacturing high-quality custom parts requires a full team of experienced professionals; design and engineering, tooling, troubleshooting, quality control, packing, and shipping service providers must all be vetted and sourced, and communication among different vendors must be facilitated and organized. Working with a turnkey manufacturer eliminates these stressors, allowing for a complete, and one-stop manufacturing solution from an experienced contractor.
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. Let's take a look at the top six advantages of this process:
In a recent Q&A, Ray Merritt — a toolmaker and moldmaker with over 50 years of experience — sat down to discuss what he does for The Rodon Group, how times have changed since he started out in the business of toolmaking and mold making, and what the industry can expect going forward.
Colored plastics are used every day in a huge range of applications and settings, but very few people know — much less stop to consider — how these hues are achieved. With the help of Penn Color, a knowledgeable and experienced local colorant manufacturer who has a longstanding partnership with The Rodon Group, we have gathered information and insights into how the plastic products we know and use every day get their colors.
With Halloween right around the corner, we thought it would be appropriate to discuss some of the scary things to look out for when it comes to defects that can impact the quality of your plastic injection molded part.
Next Friday, October 6th is National Manufacturing Day. As a U.S. manufacturer, we are proud to be participating in this annual event for the sixth time and excited to open our doors to students and educators from local technical schools and colleges.
Since our founding in 1956, The Rodon Group has crafted billions of high-quality plastic components for all types of applications, earning us a reputation as one of the industry’s best high-volume injection molding providers for both standard parts and complex custom projects.
Used in all types of industries, plastics provide versatility and strength across a wide range of applications, from automotive body parts to human body parts. Each application requires a special manufacturing process that can mold the part based on specifications.
