Material Cost Reduction
Sometimes, prices from outside suppliers rise for materials in the molding process. When one of our customers was faced with a major price increase, we worked with them to develop a viable alternative.
Knowing that the pending increase would hurt our customer’s productivity, we searched for a solution that would contain costs while maintaining consistency and high quality. The material in question was a colored blend. Burbak found that the base resin and the colorant could be purchased more economically as separate resins. We then purchased a blender to accurately mix the base resin and the colarant, and feed it into the injection molding machine. After our customer qualified the material, they achieved a significant cost reduction.
