There are several benefits to having an ISO Registered mold shop for construction of plastic injection molds. Injection mold suppliers today are expected to meet tight tolerances, and even tighter deadlines. With just-in-time delivery, this leaves no room for error.
Plastic injection mold suppliers must follow a detailed checklist to ensure that all issues are addressed ahead of time, prior to cutting steel. When Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is performed, critical issues are brought to light prior to mold construction, thus ensuring a quality job the first time.
In addition to APQP, ISO Registered injection mold suppliers must consider all inputs into their process, and evaluate their effectiveness of reaching the process goals. All goals should have quantifiable measurable data, and those goals must be audited internally and externally.
Any deviations from the course of satisfactorily attaining your goals are required to be explored with corrective actions, or an 8D response. These requirements ensure that all processes are meticulously followed, resulting in a consistent process, which is required for consistent quality product.
Many injection molders are required to be registered to ISO standards, especially when supplying industries that require a high level of consistent quality product output. When injection molders supply the automotive industry with precision components, they must rely on a top-notch, quality driven mold construction shop.
