Plant-Based Resin Injection Molding Capabilities and Process:
1) Part Design: Versatile, reliable and cost-effective plant-based injection molding is used across a range of industries and is purposed for businesses of all types which need complex, intricate part shapes with an added sustainable factor.
With our team of experienced CAD and SolidWorks designers, we concentrate on aspects such as; wall thickness, rib design, boss design as well as corner transitions, weld lines, gate placement and adequately placed vents. Doing so ensures the injection molding process is problem-free and efficient so we can provide you with a top-notch finished part.
2) Tooling: beyondGREEN biotech, Inc. fabricates some of the best tooling in the industry, and our tool warranty reinforces that claim. As long as beyondGREEN is running a tool that it has built, you will never see any repair or maintenance charges. We design tools for high volume, high tolerance production for the life of your project. Our tools are constructed from stainless steel mold bases and cavities ensuring optimal mold performance and durability.
A quality precision mold, built to last for years is an investment and an asset to your company. Several variables impact the cost of an injection mold:
The combined effort of our designers and toolmakers results in molds that ensure quality, precision tolerances, and optimized cycle times. We have the capacity to mold parts with complex geometries and variations in wall thickness. Our maximum part size is 10” square, although our primary concentration revolves around parts with even smaller dimensions.
3) Manufacturing and Automation: Before a production mold is ramped-up and running, a sample mold is created to test the cavitation and the resin. This vital step can help avoid costly reworks of an injection mold. If any problems surface, they are addressed before the production mold goes into service.
Injection molding machines come in all shapes, sizes and configurations. The selection of the machine will depend on several variables including the size of the mold, the number of cavities and the resin.
Injection molding machines are classified or rated based on tonnage, or more specifically the clamping pressure or force. Presses can run in size from less than 5 tons of clamping pressure to over 4000. The higher the press ton rating, the larger the machine.
When the production mold is finalized, and the machine is prepped, manufacturing begins. An initial run will be thoroughly examined for any part defects. If none are found, full production can begin. Depending on the part and the agreement with the molder, quality checks can take place on a regular basis. They will check for strength, color correctness, and any common defects that can occur like flash or warping.
Now it comes down to inventory. You need to be sure you have the right quantities in the right place at the right time. At beyondGREEN we keep a safety stock for our clients to ensure we can meet any unseen demands. We also monitor the quantities on hand, in real-time, so we can help our clients estimate their future needs.
We utilize an MRP system (Material Requirement Planning system). This tool allows the manufacturing team at beyondGREEN monitor jobs from the minute they are initiated to the time they are delivered including all of the downstream impacts. Our demand-driven planning allows us to meet the JIT manufacturing needs of our discerning clients. beyondGREEN's manufacturing team’s experience with cycle times, resin properties, and part demand has resulted in a 99.9% satisfaction rating.
