Developing the Right Plastic Injection Molded Part
Developing the right injection molded part to satisfy your company's needs can prove to be a difficult task. The process may involve taking a rough idea for a part through to engineering design, tooling construction, part production, and ongoing quality assurance. In some cases, if the process moves through different suppliers, you lose control....and quality.
Do you need custom molded, close tolerance parts? Look for a job shop that will take your ideas from rough concepts to finished, high quality parts, all through in-house operations. An advantage is having all of the injection molding machines manufactured internally, assuring customers of the newest innovations available and minimizing downtime for any maintenance.
Leading suppliers employ a team concept in the development of your part's needs. Working closely together, each internal group provides input into the planning, design, production and quality assurance of the final product. The emphasis on quality begins in a modern production environment where cleanliness is a hallmark. During production, meticulous care in setup and frequent monitoring of the process parameters ensures consistent products. Completed parts are inspected and tested as well as monitored via Statistical Process Control (SPC).
Custom molding strengths focus on the ability to hold close tolerances with unmatched repeatability. That means each part - whether molding thousands or millions - meets a high quality standard. To keep pace with new technology, a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system can electronically monitor the molding process, to ensure the highest quality levels.
Look for a versatile range of molding capabilities for close tolerance parts, including threaded parts and also parts with metal inserts. Does your prospective plastic injection molder stock a sizeable in-house inventory of common resins to meet just-in-time orders and to obtain volume-buying discounts? A complete range of engineered resins such as Ultem* and Ryton** and other high performance polymers will take care of all your specific needs.

Unmatched Repeatability in Every Production Run
Look for a shop that serves a number of different markets with close tolerance, high quality plastic parts, focusing on industries such as Automotive, Plumbing, Appliance and Electronics. A big plus is expertise based on total in-house capabilities from engineering design and custom tooling of molds, to injection molding production and quality assurance.
Do they manufacture close tolerance precision parts with high quality repeatability? Standard manufacturing capacities produce part sizes up to 10 oz, using a wide range of high performance, engineered resins. And with insert molding capability, metal inserts can easily be molded into plastic parts, providing significant labor and time savings.
Custom Molding Solutions
Your prospective molder's history of performance sets the stage for their future with you. Look for someone who has molded millions of pieces for virtually every type of industrial business and looks forward to working with you to solve your custom molding needs.
