Injection Molding Plastic
We are researching the customized injection molding plastics space, specifically serving medical and consumer end markets.
Injection molding plastics can be complicated by shooting multiple materials successively, and adding other components in the machine to create a fully integrated part made of multiple materials.
These companies produce components such as inhalers, epipens, syringes, etc. For medical companies (e.G. Eli lily, j&j, pfizer), and customized, rigid components for makeup, detergent, and food products (for p&g, unilever, etc.) that are differentiated from the standard packaging for 75%+ of all products in the category.
We are looking to speak to people throughout the value chain – product designers, injection mold makers (create the mold to shoot plastic into), molders (using the mold to produce the part), and end customers (p&g, j&j, etc.). In particular, the best people to speak with are:

Injection Molding Machine Designing
We are the global leader in open innovation competitions with clients ranging from fortune 1000, large-scale not-for-profits, and governmental agencies. With more than a decade of experience, we have a proven track record of crowdsourcing innovation solutions from the world’s smartest people, who compete to provide ideas and solutions to important business, social, policy, scientific, and technical challenges. We are an authorized zintro partner.
We have found that often times professionals with experience in adjacent areas of expertise can help to deliver the best solutions.
During the operation of injection molding machines it is crucial that the (moving) molding tools are aligned, so that the resulting parts of the injection molding are defect-free and consistently produced to the quality required.
Hence, our client for this challenge is seeking mechanisms and designs that can improve the performance of their injection molding machines by guaranteeing the alignment (parallelism) of inner and outer molding tools during operation.
This is a theoretical challenge that requires only a written proposal to be submitted and offers $15,000 as an award.
If you are interested in participating in the challenge, please reply back via zintro and i will send you the full details and required information.+17 Other Responses
Plastic Injection Molding Medical Devices
My organization would like to better understand 3d metrology, ct scanning and the various other technologies available (blue and white light scanning, etc.) in order to source these services properly for our plastic injection molding projects for the medical device industry. Our tolerance requirements are often +/-.001 on a part that is 2 inches long and we are not sure which technologies will offer the best solution and integration with our processes and organization.+8 Other Responses
