In-House Engineering Support
Using advanced injection molding tools and technologies isn’t enough for making complex, critical-use plastic parts and products of the highest quality. Engineering services that fully support product development — including design, testing, manufacturing, and assembly — are also critical for success.
Being able to rely on a wide range of plastics engineering services is increasingly important as critical-use plastic and products become more complex in size, geometry and function. Kaysun offers a full range of in-house engineering services that provide just the right amount of customized support, including:
Design for Manufacturability (DfM) — also known as Design for Manufacturing — is the process by which products are consciously and proactively designed to optimize all facets of manufacturing.
Specially trained injection molding engineers use the insights gained from DfM to identify and resolve potential moldability issues, simplify part design and tooling, select appropriate plastics, and maximize production and cost efficiencies. Since these steps are taken during the initial design phase, the benefit is twofold. It aligns engineering and production to prevent costly rework and ultimately save manufacturers time and money.
With more than 25,000 engineered resins to choose from, material selection can be a challenging task. Our deep knowledge base in materials saves clients time, energy and expense by identifying the best materials for the molds and parts. Kaysun also helps customers with short- and long-term strategies to overcome resin shortages.
The tool — or "mold" — is the most important investment OEMs can make to ensure the quality of their plastic parts. Kaysun engineers completely manage the process of tool design, build, and maintenance to optimize production and maximize longevity.
Many manufacturers don’t know that plastic parts can be injection-molded with the same tight tolerances and perform just as well (or even better) than their metal counterparts. Companies can expect to achieve an overall cost savings of 25-50 percent by converting to plastic parts without compromising quality or functionality.
Constantly looking ahead, we use our engineering experience to foresee issues in production before they happen. With a thorough understanding of manufacturing processes and the ability to predict how products will be inspected, we can ultimately create a better design and start each program off on the right foot, enabling the opportunity for optimal efficiency and success.
Kaysun's in-house Quality Lab is a hub for cross-functional collaboration, comprehensive testing, and injection molded part and process quality management. Critical processes include moisture content testing, fatigue testing, CMM inspection, and CT inspection.
Also referred to as secondary operations, value-added services include sonic welding, plastics machining, heat staking, insert assembly, and potting/sealing. Customized assembly operations can also be carried out in cleanroom conditions when needed.
