3 Must-Have Characteristics in a Custom Injection Molding Partnership

The widespread and ongoing disruptions in the plastics industry has given rise to a certain degree of panic. Manufacturers and suppliers are at the mercy of broken supply chains, and solutions for resins, service, and delivery aren’t always readily available.

4 Benefits of Managing Molding Risk Probability with DfM and FMEA

Generally speaking, Design for Manufacturability (DfM) is the process of consciously and proactively designing products to optimize all facets of manufacturing. 

DfM methodology aligns engineering and production in the design phase, ensuring cost and time efficiencies, superior quality, regulatory compliance, and end-user satisfaction.

Central to maximizing these DfM benefits is prioritizing Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) within the larger plastic part analysis to assess risk probability. Identifying and addressing problems early in the product development process prevents costly issues that could impact manufacturability such as plastics selection, tight tolerances, and secondary operations.

3 Injection Molding Post-Processing Solutions That Benefit OEMs

An estimated 80% of a project’s costs are determined within the design phase.1 For injection molded parts, tooling often consumes a good share of the budget and decision-making, but it’s not the only consideration.

Value-added services (also known as secondary operations) are essential and sometimes overlooked during design because of their injection molding post-processing status. However, identifying the proper value-added services early in the project timeline can help eliminate injection molding defects that could ultimately lead to costly fixes.

How To Identify A Molder That Supports Sustainable Injection Molding

From excessive energy consumption and scrap to general resin use, the injection molding process has historically raised some ecological concerns. The alarm is neither surprising nor unique to injection molders or the industries they serve.

However, as some experts project that the earth may be mere decades away from environmental collapse1, there are important choices to be made.

How Injection Molders Improve Value Engineering in Manufacturing

Up until World War II, achieving necessary product functionality at the lowest cost was usually done by any means necessary. However, the war-related scarcity of materials and parts compelled General Electric engineers to find material substitutes.

Many of the substitutes reduced project costs and improved overall product performance — and the standard practice of finding cost-effective manufacturing solutions without compromising product functionality or quality was born.  Today, we know it as "value analysis" for existing parts or “value engineering" for new parts.

How In-House Teams Improve Plastic Injection Molding Automation

Plastic injection molding automation is a staple for custom injection molders, and with good reason. The speed and precision automation lends to producing extremely complex injection-molded parts is unparalleled. Automation also helps realize cost efficiencies by eliminating humans — and the related potential for error — from the process.

With so many benefits, it’s easy to understand why plastic injection molding automation is appealing to OEM and molder alike. What makes it even more valuable is when a custom injection molder has an in-house automation team available to develop creative turnkey solutions to even the toughest customer challenges.
