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.
With patient lives and staff safety at stake, the medical and pharmaceutical industries require adherence to strict safety and quality standards. Medical and pharmaceutical parts must be able to meet stringent quality and traceability standards, and all steps of the manufacturing process must be carefully monitored. In these sensitive industries, liability is essential.
To ensure consumer health and safety, the food and beverage industry must adhere to stringent specifications— requiring nontoxic parts, BPA-free components, and FDA certification. For plastic injection molding in these food service applications, various food grade materials must be used.
How often do you source a plastic injection molder? If you are like most companies and purchasing managers, probably not very often. Typically, once you have selected 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.
Although metal-to-plastic conversion was introduced in the 1950s, with the invention of engineering-grade resins, many manufacturers today are unfamiliar with the advantages of this versatile technique.
Speed and efficiency in plastic injection molding equate to cost savings. So, it is no surprise that robots play a significant role in improving the manufacturing process. From simple sprue pickers to complex automated End-of-Arm Tooling (EOAT), the industry is taking advantage of this automation trend.
As we discussed in the first part of this blog series, turnkey manufacturers provide a one-stop shop for customers in search of quality custom parts; the process begins with a new design and ends with a final product requiring only “the turn of a key” to get started. Design, tooling, production, packing, and shipping are all managed in one place, by a single team of experts. Material selection, professional sourcing, and even invoicing are streamlined for low pricing, high quality, and optimal efficiency.
