The Challenge

On an injection molded part, a critical area was developing excess flash. Upon a closer look, the issue was inherent to the design of the part & couldn’t be remedied by altering the mold or part.

The Solution

RTD was tasked with designing & building a machine that would be placed on the production floor. The machine would need to remove flash from 4 holes in 15 seconds or less, without leaving residue and with the ability to run 3 shifts a day for approximately 3 years.

The Result

The machine has been running for more than 1 year with only minor maintenance issues. Approximately 150k pcs to date.

I’ve worked with RTD Technologies for more than 10 years. Their response time and quality of work has been exceptional. Whether it’s complicated pneumatic equipment and fixtures or quality/manufacturing gauges, RTD has always delivered a quality product. An excellent supplier.  I would highly recommend them.

I have been working with RTD for 15 years and continually go back based on the precision and craftsmanship they demonstrate in all of the manufacturing equipment and fixtures they make for me. The reliability and consistency is unmatched. I can’t afford equipment issues in a fast-paced production manufacturing environment and I know I can rely on what I get from RTD to meet our expectations every time.
