Injection Molding – Problem and Solution

The Problem:
A plastic parts manufacturer began experiencing unacceptable levels of defective parts in their Injection Molded & Metallizing operations. The company had evidence that the increase in defective parts was due in part to extremely high levels of static electricity generated from the injection molding process and subsequent parts handling.

The Solution:
The manufacturer requested our diagnostic services to measure, document and confirm the occurrences of static electricity in their operations. In addition, the manufacturer requested that we provide a recommendation for eliminating the static electricity and contaminant problems, thereby reducing the number of defective parts.
