Eliminating the “Fire Fight” in Plastic Injection

Plastics production rides a fine line when the goal of low scrap, high yields and sustainable, repeatable systems are being developed.

Quite often you will hear old school molders describing their battle for a robust processing system as “fire fighting” in the world of plastic injection molding. In real terms, “fighting fires” on the production floor is a sign of system failure.
