The Benefits of Custom Plastic Extrusion

Posted by , on Nov, 2018

Does your company sell or use a lot of plastic tubing, channeling, or other things which require extrusion? If so, you may benefit from a service offering custom plastic extrusion for your business. Here are some good reasons to contract these services soon. What is Extruded Plastic? Extrusion manufacturing creates many products and materials today. First, a solid material gets placed against an extrusion die. It is then pushed through the die, and the material comes out in long sections (like meat going through a meat grinder). This process creates conduit, wiring, gutters, and many kinds of parts used today. How Custom Plastic Extrusion Can Benefit Your Business Do you have a wide range of extruded product needs? If so, you must have specific equipment for each part or material you produce. Unless you have a large manufacturing facility, you may have to stop and change equipment to produce different sizes and types of materials. When you partner with a company offering customized extruded products for your business, you can avoid downtime and added costs associated with equipment changing. Increase Production With custom plastic extrusion services, you can greatly increase your production. For example, suppose you would like to add to your customer base, but you do not have the production capabilities. If you want to increase manufacturing, you may need to buy more equipment or add-on to your facility. The easiest way to increase your output is to hire extrusion specialists. They have all the equipment and materials needed for the job. Cost-Effective By turning over some or all of your extrusion needs to a trusted company, you greatly increase your efficiency. They can give you many kinds of custom extruded plastic materials, and you do not have to make additional investments. There is no need to add employees to the payroll or pay out overtime wages. 2 people like this post. Like...

4 Reasons To Outsource Industrial Product Design

Posted by , on Oct, 2018

For many small companies and startups, as well as OEMs moving into a new line of products, doing everything in-house is simply not time or cost effective. In these situations, it is much easier and a better business decision to outsource specific elements of the projects. When it comes to industrial product design, prototyping and production, outsourcing to the specialized company completing the final production of parts and components makes good business sense. There are several reasons why this is true, and comparing the in-house capacities of the business with the possibilities with outsourcing is a great place to start. Experience with Similar Projects The specialists in industrial product design working with production companies have expertise and experience in working in specific industries. For example, a company manufacturing custom plastic parts and components may have experience in working with companies in the medical device and equipment industry, in the clean room molding processes and in other related areas. Fresh Eyes on the Project In-house teams of engineers and designers can often become tunnel focused on the project and miss ways to streamline or improve on the design. Having someone with expertise and experience can increase the options and possibilities of the design. Cost Effective Production Methods When the industrial product design team also works with the manufacturing processes, they can often see areas in the design that are ineffective, create greater challenges or increase the cost of the production of the part. By working at the design stage to minimize these issues, overall production costs will be kept low while quality control can be easily maintained. Speeding Up Concept to Market Timelines In any industry and with any OEM, time spent in development and design is necessary but also costly to the company. By outsourcing the design, the OEM can budget for both the cost and the time involved in the process, then move quickly into prototyping and full-scale production without putting additional pressure on internal resources and capacity.
