Kenson Opens Molding Technical Center

Kenson Plastics (Warrendale, PA) has launched a technical center at its manufacturing facility. A designer and manufacturer of pressure-formed plastics used in the medical sector, the company will operate the technical center with a dedicated engineering staff and full-time engineering manager. The purpose of the center is to work closely with customers to originate or assist with product design and part development.

Utilizing CAD/CAM software (three seats of Mastercam X4), the engineering staff undertakes design revisions to meet customers' needs. The quality manager works with the engineering staff and is an integral part of the initial design phase. This team effort helps ensure that proper tolerances are specified as they relate to pressure forming and vacuum forming. Additionally, Kenson is currently in the process of achieving ISO registration and will be compliant by the third quarter of 2010.

Once the design phase is finished, the company's engineers follow the project throughout the preproduction model-making, tooling, and manufacturing processes. The company employs a coordinate measuring machine and eight precision CNC machines with three- and five-axis capabilities to produce and evaluate models and design parts.
