Hatfield, PA – This week The Rodon Group released a new eBook on plastic processing and injection molding, titled “An Introduction to Plastic Injection Molding”. The resource guide contains information to help designers, engineers and purchasing professionals navigate the world of plastic injection molding.

The goal of this publication is to make the reader more knowledgeable about what goes into creating a plastic part. It is written to provide a basic understanding of the presses, the processes and the cost factors involved in plastics manufacturing.

“We are excited to be able to offer a free reference guide to those navigating the complex world of plastic injection molding. We felt that creating a guide that easily explains the processes and terminology would be of great value to those looking to create a part using this form of molding. Plastic injection molding may not be rocket science, but it is a very complicated manufacturing process. Through this eBook, the readers will be better prepared to tackle their next plastic manufacturing project.” states Kevin McGrath, VP of Sales and Marketing at The Rodon Group.”

Each chapter of the eBook is dedicated to one specific aspect of plastic processing. Topics include:
