Injection Works celebrated the arrival of four new replacement and one new additional molding machine to our Mount Laurel, NJ manufacturing facility. Presses sized 190-ton, 190-ton, 240-ton and 420-ton serve as replacements of retired assets, while an additional, fifth 120-ton press brings our total work cell count up to 21. The company expects to offer customers improved service levels based on the enhanced reliability, repeatability and efficiency that these investments will provide. The company’s Value-Adding Secondary Operations Department gains further capability with the addition of two new sonic welding units, one that features a 2,000 watt generator, and a second unit with an even larger 3,000 watt power generator. These new assets will allow Injection Works to provide customers a greater range of size and complexity of components that integrate sonic welding of features such as threaded inserts into their design.
Congressman Andy Kim with Chris Rapacki, CEO of Injection Works New Jersey Congressman Andy Kim spent the afternoon of July 9, 2021 touring the Injection Works facility, meeting with a variety of our staff, and learning about our company and also about our many customer and partners. Our team was also able to share suggestions on how to help make USA-based manufacturing companies like Injection Works even more competitive and successful in the future. We thank the Congressman for taking the time to visit Injection Works and also for all of the time and attention he gave to all of those who he met with today! It was an honor and a pleasure to meet and speak with Congressman Kim, and to have him tour our operation at Injection Works.

KIBBUTZ TZE’ELIM, Israel — Eight tons of trash are piled high at the entrance of a small factory in this tree-lined kibbutz — rotting food mixed with plastic bags, dirty paper, castoff bottles and containers, even broken toys. But nothing is headed for a landfill. Instead, what’s next is a process that could revolutionize recycling. Within hours, the mound will be sorted, ground, chopped, shredded, cleaned and heated into a sort of garbage caramel, then resurrected as tiny pseudo-plastic pellets that can be made into everyday items like trays and packing crates. “The magic that we’re doing is we’re taking everything — the chicken bones, the banana peels,” says Jack “Tato” Bigio, the chief executive at UBQ Materials. “We take this waste, and we convert it.” Such upcycling is desperately needed by a world seeking solutions to the environmental challenges caused by the 2 billion tons of waste generated annually. Turning that trash into treasure has long held allure. Yet attempts have fallen short, and cynics abound. UBQ says it has succeeded where others have failed, creating a radical technology that transforms garbage into the raw materials for plastics manufacturers and earns them a profit in the end. And by diverting household refuse destined for long-term burial, the process will help to reduce landfill production of a powerful greenhouse gas while creating new life for hard-to-recycle plastic. The loop exemplifies a “circular economy,” in which waste is turned into something useful. One skeptic turned convert calls it a breakthrough that could, in the best way, “create very serious disruption.” “If we want to advance to a more sustainable future, we don’t only need new technologies, but new business models,” said Antonis Mavropoulos, a Greek chemical engineer who is president of
The dried coffee bean skin chaff from roasting makes a perfect filler material in plastic parts. Like many commuters, Ford Motor Co. is making a morning stop by Mickey Dee’s for coffee. Only Ford’s coffee run is for the chaff of the dried skin that comes off the beans when roasting them. McDonald’s USA produces millions of pounds of coffee chaff every year, and now Ford is incorporating some of that waste stream into the creation of injection-molded plastic parts like F-150 pickup truck headlamp housings. The chaff serves as a filler in place of talc, which is normally used to help reduce the weight, increase the strength and improve the heat resistance of plastic parts by blending it into the mixture that is used to make parts The coffee chaff doesn’t just turn out to be a sustainable alternative to talc, it actually performs even better than the regular material. Of course, if you could just grind up coffee chaff and stir it into plastic materials, suppliers would likely have been doing so already. Ford’s Research and Innovation Center has developed a process that heats the chaff to high temperatures under low oxygen and then mixes it along with other additives into plastic to create the pellets that plastic manufacturers use to create the end product. Ford and McDonald’s partner with Competitive Green Technologies, which processes the coffee chaff and with Varroc Lighting Systems, which supplies the F-150’s headlamps to Ford. Together, they create parts that are about 20 percent lighter than before and use 25 percent less energy during the molding process, but which have significantly better heat properties than headlight housings made with talc. “The coffee chaff is even better than the talc material we are replacing,” said
As evidence of our continued Commitment to Quality throughout the organization, Injection Works has adopted and recently earned certification to the latest ISO 9001:2015 Quality System standard. International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001:2015 is the most updated standard of its kind and focuses on quality management systems and performance, assisting companies to develop a management system that aligns quality with their wider business strategy. Achieving this latest certification required Injection Works to build upon our 12+ years of established ISO 9000 certification by demonstrating a superior focus on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction through a measurement intensive risk-based methodology, with the final result being a full recertification audit by our registrar, SGS, in May 2018.
