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.
This review of plastic resins will focus on the essential characteristics of polymers with some examples of popular resins and their applications.
To select the best resin for your manufacturing project, being able to answer the questions below will help guide you to the right material.
The Rodon Group — an industry-leading plastic injection molding company with more than 60 years of experience began offering innovative window and door solutions in 2010.
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.
The Rodon Group is proud to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website. Based on both customer and employee feedback, we’ve streamlined and enhanced our site using the latest technology to provide the best possible user experience for our customers and fellow industry professionals.
With new user-friendly, intuitive design and various new educational resources, we’ve made it easier than ever to get started on your next high-volume project.
Let’s take a look at some of the new features our new website has to offer:
While plastic injection molders will help you determine the size of the machine needed to get the best result, a project designer or engineer will get a good estimate based on some basic information. By knowing approximately what size machine will be required, you can better source a plastic injection molder that will meet your needs.
