KASO Plastics understands how challenging it can be to find a quality injection molder. To make the decision-making process easier, we’ve provided a list of frequently asked questions we get here at KASO. You can use these questions to evaluate our team or other manufacturers to find the manufacturing partner that’s right for you.
DOES KASO HAVE AN IN-HOUSE INJECTION MOLD MANAGEMENT PROGRAM?
Your injection mold is your most valuable investment. Here at KASO, we ensure that investment continues to pay off by maintaining a rigorous injection mold maintenance and tool management program to ensure the proper care, cleaning, and maintenance of each mold we work with. Many injection molders put effort into tool maintenance only when there’s a problem. By choosing a manufacturer with in-house capabilities you can ensure frequent and thorough maintenance to ensure the quality of your injection molds is maintained.
DO YOU OFFER IN-HOUSE ENGINEERING?
Beware. Many manufacturers claim this capability, but really offer little in the way of true engineering assistance.
