Glossary of Cosmetic Defects Terms

Injection molding is a complex technology with possible production problems; these can either be caused by defects in the molds or more often by part processing.  The Society of Plastics Industry produced a list of glossary terms and definitions for typical cosmetic defects for custom injection molded parts in “Cosmetic Specifications of Injection Molded Parts.”

The definitions are based on typical terms used in the injection molding process and where applicable to post molding activities.

Samples of our Abilities…

OEM/Industrial Industries

Clean Room Environment

These value add operations can be performed in our general molding facility and our Class 7 (10K) clean room facility, whether it’s utilizing our skilled labor or our collaborative robots and automation. We have the ability to perform simple to complex operations depending on your requirements, if you don’t see a service listed, please ask we provide several custom operations per customer request.

Increased Efficiency With Robotics

Automation and robotics are heavily-integrated throughout our injection molding processes and post-molding operations by separating runners from parts, feed and unload injection molding presses, assemble components, sort and package parts, and more. The utilization of this automation gives our customers an advantage by increased throughput and overall time & cost-savings.

Our continued investments into technology has given us the ability to offer additional services. We understand the ultimate goal is cost-savings for our customers’ so we have positioned ourselves as a full-cycle manufacturing partner through enhanced processes and advanced technology.

Collaborative Robotics

Custom Molding Markets

We utilize Baxter, Sawyer and Universal robots to perform highly specific actions with an extremely high degree of accuracy. Our in-house dedicated automation team focuses on programming our robots to achieve increase throughput and cost savings.

End-of-Arm Tooling

OEM/Industrial Industries

We offer a variety of options that are available to industrial robots and automation customized to match the product being handled and can perform a variety of manufacturing tasks.  These task require use of vacuum cups, grippers, nippers, sprue pickers and sensors.

Advantages of our QRM Approach

Supply-Chain

Our ERP system (IQMS) gives us the ability to provide a customer portal capability which reports in real-time. This gives our customers the ability to view the status of their project at any given time. Customers may place orders, view product availability, check on order status and shipping status, view production information plus run customer specific reports.

Offering KANBAN shipping of stocked inventory and Just-In-Time Delivery from blanket orders to delivering your parts as you need them which is all tracked and managed through our ERP system. We have our own delivery trucks, so we offer a no charge for regular scheduled deliveries within a 100 mile radius.

Project Management

To be your committed manufacturing solution, our team can support every aspect of your custom injection molding and business needs. Our Project Management Office (PMO) manages new mold builds, tool transfers, and new projects. They examine the entire scope of your project, timeline & cost management, material selection, design & development and overall integration with your engineering team.

Essentially, you receive a dedicated team of professionals that collaborates, communicates, coordinates and executes. In addition, we have dedicated R&D injection molding machines to aid in initial sampling and validation to accelerate all phases of your project and transition into full production.

  • Scientific Injection Molding Process & Benefits – Part I
    In a manufacturing environment filled with predictive and data-based methods, why should your molding process stray away from what seems to be the normal buzz words over the past decade? Or why should OEM’s allow injection molders in their supply chain that don’t use more advanced molding techniques then the remaining 70% of the suppliers […]
  • How Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) Contributes in Speed-To-Market Goals
    For the past 30+ years we’ve heard about Lean manufacturing, but when you don’t have a high-volume production job should you still be primarily using Lean Manufacturing principles? The solution developed over 20 years ago to handle those high mix low volume manufacturing jobs is Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM). This approach doesn’t look at making […]
  • Injection Molding Supply Chain Solutions to Reduce Complexity
    Consolidate your supply chain. This has been the goal of many OEM’s for the past 15+ years, and suppliers continue to evolve with the market demands to provide more than solely their core competency as a “solution”. Crescent Industries started out with simple value add capabilities to remove some operations the OEM needed to perform […]
