High-Quality Plastic Injection Molding in Action

September 8, 2022

You may have heard that Boeing received preliminary regulatory clearance from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) at the end of July. This approval is a milestone for Boeing and allows them to start moving forward after largely halting deliveries since 2020. It also demonstrates the highly-regulated nature of the aerospace industry and why quality is so essential. That’s one of the reasons we are proud to serve this industry through our full-service plastic injection molding capabilities.

Chemist’s Corner – Part II: Success From Failure

September 7, 2021

“Failure is success if we learn from it.” — Malcomb Forbes

When a component fails, it is imperative that the root cause of the failure be determined quickly and accurately, and that proper corrective measures be taken in order to prevent future occurrences. When Molded Dimensions is asked to provide an estimate for a part that is not meeting the expectations of a customer, they will request samples of the part and take it through a simple five step process:

Chemist’s Corner — Why Parts Fail

July 27, 2021

This is the first of two articles about parts that fail and why. Rubber components are generally known for their durability, elasticity, strength, and reliability. However, when subjected to certain conditions, the rubber material is susceptible to fatigue and failure. These can be avoided through proper testing and good chemistry, but if a part does fail to meet your performance expectations, how do you determine why?

Technically, there are a number of possible causes related to a rubber part failure, but three leading indicators would come from knowing the component’s working environment, tolerance for temperatures, and mechanical performance. Let’s look at each area:

Silicone Products Can Be Found All Around Us

January 27, 2016

silicone-partsSilicone rubber is an elastomer that combines silicon, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.  It is a material that maintains its properties at very high and low temperatures, making it desirable for use in many applications.  Because of this, you see silicone used in your everyday home life in the kitchen as spatulas, and even oven mitts. In the office, Postit® note utilizes silicone-based adhesive systems.  This material offers such diversity that it is also used in many industries including automotive, medical, and power distribution, along with many more

Dating back to ancient times, the Romans used silicon-based sand to make glass.  In the 1930s, Chemists of Corning Glass and General Electric are credited as having created the first silicone polymers.   Recognizing the potential of the polymer, Corning Glass and General Electric spun off a group called Dow Corning in 1943 to continue the development of the material, which we use today.
