The process of plastic injection molding is designed to produce precision parts at a low cost. The part design must be developed to maximize the efficiency inherent in high-volume molding. With the right design, parts can be made consistently and with quality. Without a good design, costly processing mistakes can be made.

Experience and knowledge

The design engineers at Rodon have over 20 years of experience not only designing molds but building them as well. This background gives our in-house team the ability to find creative solutions to even the most challenging design manufacturing problems.

Our experienced designers are equipped with state-of-the-art software including Solid Works. They assess the part design and make modifications and recommendations based on key product requirements including product usage and function. They look for answers to questions such as:

  • How will the part be used? What is its application? Is it a standalone product or a component of a larger assembly?
  • What are the dimensional and tensile requirements?
  • Does the part need to withstand elements, pressure, chemicals?
  • Does this part meet our requirements for volume and size?

Taking all of these manufacturing factors into account is a challenging task and one that requires a strong knowledge base, not only of mold design but the injection molding process as well. It’s the first key step of our concept to completion manufacturing solution at Rodon, and we strive to get it right from the start.
