Utilizing Mechanical Advantage to Reduce the Footprint of Plastic Injection Molding Machinery

Posted by Dave Scaglione on Nov 15, 2018 8:00:00 AM

What if I told you that bigger is not always better? Many engineers know that this is the case when it comes to injection molding machines. Larger injection molding machinery is less portable, more difficult to house and typically requires more maintenance. If a machine exists with the same clamping force, half the footprint at a lower cost, why wouldn’t you use it? A superior design utilizing mechanical advantage makes this possible. In this blog we’ll show you how mechanical advantage works, and how the V-Mold can reduce the footprint and costs of plastic injection molding.

Prototyping Plastic Parts with Vertical Injection Molding Technology

Posted by Dave Scaglione on Nov 8, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Idea, product concept, initial design, prototype, final design, bridge production, market feedback, and final production are all phases that a new product may go through before it can be mass produced and sold successfully. Moving through these various phases quickly and economically is critical to the success of a new product launch. Vertical Injection Molding Technology should be considered as an efficient solution to both prototyping plastic parts and bridge production phases of the new product launches. This technology enables you to prototype plastic parts more easily and move to full production faster.

How to Reduce Injection Molding Costs with Low-Volume Injection Molding

Posted by Dave Scaglione on Oct 25, 2018 8:00:00 AM

We all face the challenge of reducing manufacturing or product costs. One key to success is having the right tools. You could use a sledge hammer to hang a picture, but a tack hammer is no doubt the better choice. When developing plastic parts and moving from design to a working model prototype, you need the manufacturer’s version of a tack hammer for the job. Using low volume injection molding (LVIM) can significantly reduce injection molding costs in a variety of ways.
