Compostable Resin Injection Molding

The Plant-Based Biopolymers we use to mold your product(s) are certified by:Material Certifications

If you have a need for high volume, intricate parts, you have come to the right place. The manufacturing industry has provided businesses with the tools to create plastic injection molded articles for decades, we have now taken the injection molding industry to the next level! 
beyondGREEN biotech, Inc. has spent countless years on research and development creating plant-based resin and a manufacturing method to convert that resin into operational injection molded products.
The best part is, with manufacturing done in Southern California and control on the biopolymer supply, beyondGREEN is able to provide it's clients with a price comparable to that of off-shore plastic injection molding. (Prices do vary on QTY ordered and product specifications)

Single-Cavity molds start at only $1,500.00! 

beyondGREEN biotech, Inc. has earned a reputation for being a US-based, hybrid manufacturer of Extrusion Blown Film and Injection Molding Manufacturing as well as being one to meet the comparative prices of oversees plastic manufacturing. As a BNQ and GREEN America Certified Business, beyondGREEN offers high-quality with low-cost solutions which meet global competitive pricing.
Specializing in close-tolerance injection molding of small certified home and industrial compostable parts, we provide a total concept solution from design and tooling to production, fulfillment, and packaging. 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 core competencies have centered on small, high volume custom compostable components.
Using a combination of on-line vision inspection systems, SPC charting, as well as in-lab test, measurement, and inspection equipment, we ensure tolerances, color, physical appearance, and mechanical characteristics match your specifications. We offer custom packaging, 3D printed prototypes, safety stocking programs, just-in-time delivery, and a number of other additional support services. Molded Products

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 core metal — High volume precision molds are made from hardened steel that can withstand the pressures of a long production run while still meeting close tolerances.
  • The number of cavities — We look to maximize cavities in the mold to maintain the highest level of productivity. In general, we recommend creating one mold per part versus creating a family mold which tends to produce inferior products and has more downtime due to maintenance issues.
  • The mold base — The base holds all of the mold cavities, inserts and components together. The cost of the base is estimated based on the size of the mold and the type of steel used to make the base as well as the customization required.
  • Core/cavity machining — All molds must also be customized. Customization includes the placement of cores, cavities, ejectors, cooling lines, etc.
  • Part complexity — Just as the number of cavities plays a role in determining the cost of the mold, so does part complexity. This includes the surface finish of the final part as well as the number of undercuts required. Turnkey or vertically integrated injection molders

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.
