Does ‘Scientific Molding’ Make a Difference?

MRPC, for one, swears by it. The results, the firm's managers say, are less scrap, faster startups, more repeatable setups, more stable processing, and better troubleshooting. As reported in our February Processor Strategies, this $20 million medical custom injection molder in Butler, Wis., launched a program last year to train and convert all its 140 employees to the philosophy and methods of Scientific Molding. Two of its managers, Jeff Randall, v.p. of engineering, and Brunson Parish, senior process engineer, received formal training in Scientific Molding from some of the best trainers and consultants in the industry. Now they are training the rest of the staff—even material handlers—in what Parish calls a “business-changing method”—one that's becoming almost a necessity in the highly quality-conscious medical industry. There’s a white paper on the subject on the company’s website.
