Custom injection molder The Rodon Group (Hatfield, PA) announced a facility expansion and the acquisition of a new 720-ton hybrid injection molding machine for large parts.
The expansion includes an additional 125,000 square feet of space at a secondary location in Hatfield, PA. The area will allow Rodon to grow with its diverse customer base and allow for improved process flow and future advances of the company’s injection molding capabilities.
The new 720-ton injection molding machine enhances the capacities of Rodon Group’s existing 118 molding presses, offering a range of fractional to 107 ounces and clamping forces ranging from 46 to 720 tons. “With a much higher tonnage capability than those of our existing machines, the new press allows us to offer greater production flexibility for large part injection molding and improves our capabilities for customers that are looking to manufacture these types of parts,” said Jill Worth, Digital Marketing Lead.
“As plastic injection molding methods continue to advance and evolve, allowing for enhanced flexibility and more sophisticated customization options, molding companies must be able to stay ahead of the curve in order to offer clients the latest technologies and highest-quality end products that suit their needs in a changing market,” she added.
