Orbital approaches every project with the “Moldability of the Plastic”. There are 5 extremely important components to this approach:
- Part Design, Function & Assembly Considerations
- Material Selection
- Tooling Design & Construction
- Plastic Processing Parameters & Set-up
- Injection Molding Machine Equipment Specification
Envision each of these components as part of a system, if one component fails the entire system will fail. This will significantly affect the product launch of a plastic injection molded part.
For example, the part design and end use will drive the type of material selected and specified.
The part design and material chosen will drive the tooling construction, materials, cavitation, etc.
Part design, material selection and tooling will significantly drive the type of equipment, processing expertise and parameters to successfully bring all the “Moldability” components together.
As a firm we have over 100 years of combined experience each with a focused component of “Moldability” and overlapping experiences thereof. We use this knowledge and experience to concurrently engineer every injection molded part from a “Moldability” point of view.
