As a lights-out manufacturing shop, having a completely flawless quality control plan in place is crucial. Our engineers need to know that our press is outputting consistent parts even when no one is in the building.
Process variability in injection molding is something many companies don't think about when choosing an injection molder. That is, until they start seeing inconsistencies in the parts they're ordering. That's why it is extremely important to work with a company that uses systematic process control for quality assurance.
We chose RJG software to help monitor our part quality. RJG is installed on all of our injection mold presses to ensure a repeatable and accurate manufacturing process. Along with our other automated processes, the software helps us offer lower part prices and shorter lead times.
If an issue ever does arise (which is rare), we can figure out exactly when it occurred so that no time or money is wasted. We will immediately correct the issue and get production back on track to prevent any delays. This ultimately helps us deliver parts that are to specification for both prototype quantities and small volume production amounts.
