There are many factors to consider when choosing an injection molding partner. One area to examine is the skill of the molding partner. This may seem like an obvious consideration but it is crucial that OEMs consider the breadth and depth of capabilities of any molding partner being considered.

Simply put, the skill and capabilities of an injection molding partner matters as not all manufacturers are equipped to offer the same solutions. For this reason, OEMs must partner with a manufacturer, like ProMed, that has the proven experience, facilities, and know-how to safely and successfully complete injection molding projects. Below are some of the benefits of working with a skilled injection molding partner, and why skill matters. It should be noted that all of the advantages below lead to more cost-effective solutions and higher levels of customer satisfaction.

  • Broad Material Options: some injection molders specialize in specific material types, so it’s important to know what your potential partner is capable of, and also what they specialize in. It is crucial that OEMs team up with a proven partner, like ProMed, who has experience with a diverse range of materials and will guide you through the selection process to ensure the right material is chosen to achieve the desired final product properties, such as strength, flexibility, and biocompatibility.
  • Able to Achieve Specifications: most OEMs have unique and specific product specifications and it is important that molding partners understand and are able to comply with those specifications. In nearly every case, a skilled injection molding partner can manufacture your part without significant specification sacrifices. Partners should readily collaborate with OEMs, providing alternatives to specification challenges as well as design suggestions to save time and money. If this collaboration is not happening, you have not found the right molding partner.
  • Superb Quality: partnering with a skilled injection molder ensures the necessary production planning occurs in order to meet the requisite regulatory, quality, and commercial standards. The ProMed work force is highly specialized in the manufacturing and quality requirements of medical products.
