Given the promised speed and generally low price points, commodity injection molders are attractive to OEMs in many industries. However, deals struck with these molders — overseas and domestically — can pose potential problems in communication and quality, among other issues.
In this age of global competitiveness and tough regulation, superior quality is the name of the game in differentiating you from competitors and increasing your market share.
OEMs in various industries are designing increasingly complex components, products and devices with higher injection molding tolerances that must meet stringent quality standards, regulatory compliance and cost-effectiveness. This can be achieved through scientific molding, the best designed and controlled manufacturing process possible.
There isn’t a whole lot that injection molders can do to speed up how long it takes to receive hard tooling. While they wait, however, they can take a number of key steps to streamline the product development process, up to and following the completion of the actual injection mold—saving up to a week or longer in lead time.
Manufacturers of medical devices and other medical applications often turn to a complex injection molder for help correcting defects in their engineered plastic components. At Kaysun, we actively seek to prevent defects before they even occur by using a design for manufacturability (DfM) approach that incorporates a comprehensive mold flow analysis and extensive plastics engineering experience to identify any potential issues in the design phase and determine the best strategy to produce defect-free parts.
Defect-free, low-cost critical use injection molded parts are the intended result of any project. But, how do you get from start to finish and remain on time, on spec and on budget?
Critical-use medical device manufacturers are faced with keeping pace with technological advancements and earning market share while simultaneously producing extremely precise and reliable medical products. Meeting all these challenges is a tall order, and utilizing the scientific molding process can help.
