Our 125,000 square foot manufacturing plant contains over 117 state-of-the-art injection molding presses that run 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

Automation abounds at Rodon, from our 3D computerized design capability and automated tool fabrication processes to our computerized and automated plastic injection molding machines and robots The entire Rodon facility is setup to produce the highest quality most economical plastic injection molded components in the industry.

Facilities list

Highly automated and fully robotic

Injection Molding Facility

Our presses are managed by an expert staff that continuously evaluates the condition of equipment to ensure state-of-the-art performance. Every machine is equipped with a robot, either a robotic picker or a full-blown servo-robot. Parts are counted and boxed as they are made and automated conveyors index the box out of the way and install an empty box in its place.

Baxter, our first adaptive manufacturing robot assists with completing repetitive production tasks and complements our highly automated facility.

Microprocessor-controlled and self-diagnostic

Each press is microprocessor-controlled and self-diagnostic, with capacities from fractional to 43 ounces, and clamping force from 46 to 400 tons.

Quality control at every manufacturing step

Quality control ensures that product specifications, color, and physical appearance are met at every step of the manufacturing process. Products can be 100% inspected using a KEYENCE Vision Inspection system. Parts requiring dimensional checks of a higher level can be inspected on our Mitutoyo QuickVision System.

Just-In-Time shipment

Quality control checks are also performed as components are sorted, weighed and sealed for stock, or prepared for Just-In-Time shipment.
