David Muir of ABC News with Diane Sawyer’s Made in America took a close look at the injection molding process at our plant. He and the CEO of Bodacious Case watched as the 100 ton press molded molten polymer into one of the precision parts for our clients IPhone case. The camera man shot high definition video of the press from several angles sure to get the opening of the still hot mold and release of the cooling part, the star of the interview. The plant with rows of machines in varying sizes was the site for the latest Made in America interview aired Wednesday and Thursday December 5th and 6th.
The case is made of two polymers each with its own melting point and shrinkage properties. The case itself, front and back, are of a rigid polymer allowing the two pieces to fit together. The band a softer polymer has just enough stretch to fit around the sides of the case with the elasticity to hold firmly in place and the flexibility to incorporate hinges for port access.
