Injection Molding Products
Manufacturers that specialize in injection molding products have to consider many things during production. These companies need to balance customer specifications, machine capabilities and multiple projects while producing quality products. Every business that procures injection molded pallets should work with designers on a list of reasonable expectations for each project.
Establish Goals for Injection Molding Products
Clients should discuss the various materials used during production with their designer. There are many materials available to use for injection molding. Depending on the project needs, your engineer will be able to advise you and together decide which material works best for your requirements. It is wise to work with a molder who is familiar with a variety of materials to ensure that you are getting the best one for your application. Polypropylene and high density polyethylene are two common polymers used. There are many more however such as nylon, styrene and low density polyethylene.
Some manufacturers are able to add blowing agents which result in structural foam products. Structural foam products reduce material yet have high impact strength. Structural foam is ideal for many packaging applications.
The final necessary point of consensus regarding injection molded pallets is customization features. These features vary depending on machine capabilities and post-production methods used by manufacturers. Most companies can produce pallets, containers and boxes with simple designs and different colors to avoid mix-ups during shipping. Other methods for identification may be striping, labeling or bar coding. Another very useful option offered by only a few manufacturers, are seat belts used for securing a pallet load rather than the traditional banding. Fewer still, offer urethane inserts to protect very delicate or sharp parts in the payload. This is an excellent way to protect parts that have been nearly impossible to ship efficiently in the past.
Robinson Industries Inc. uses true injection molding and structural foam to produce pallets and trays. They also have the capacity for the seat belt option and urethane inserts discussed above.
