Insert efficiencies into your plastics injection job shop with E2 Manufacturing Software

From quotes to quality and everything in between, E2 Shop System helps you manage your shop.

In 1868, John Wesley Hyatt became the first to inject hot celluloid into a mold, producing billiard balls. He and his brother, Isaiah, patented an injection molding machine that used a plunger in 1872. The process remained more or less the same until 1946, when James Hendry built the first screw injection molding machine, revolutionizing the plastics industry. Roughly 95% of all molding machines now use screws to efficiently heat, mix, and inject plastic into molds.

Plastic injection molding shops have come a long way. Some shops take a job from cradle to grave by building the tool and/or mold and producing the parts as well. Other shops simply produce molded parts from a customer-supplied mold. However far your shop takes a job, it’s easier to finish every job according to your shop’s standards if you have ERP software.
