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.
Injection Works invests in In-House Pad Printing capability to further reduce product delivery lead time and costs to clients
Many products require one or a few post-molding decorating steps in order to be deemed complete and saleable to customers. As the frequency of requests for this type of service continues to grow at Injection Works, we decided to bring this function in-house, and become experts in the field of pad printing. The firm purchased a new Cemec All-Color-Capable Pad Printing machine with a cliché capacity of up to 3 inches. As redundant steps related to outsourcing and transporting product to and from an independent decorator is eliminated, clients will benefit from lower overall product costs and reduced lead times.
Injection Works adds to Custom Resin Component Mixing capability with a new 4-Component Gravimetric Blending System
The Injection Works Production Team has invested in a state-of-the-art 500# per hour gravimetric blender designed to accurately and repeatedly mix up to four different raw material components for use in the injection molding process. Custom-blended resin mixes can help clients achieve better performance from their products, and differentiate their products in the marketplace, giving them an edge over competitors. This blender can be remotely programmed using Wi-Fi technology, saving valuable set-up time on the production floor.
