Kokomo, IN (PRWEB) May 25, 2005
BMJ Mold and Engineering has announced a new way to control costs associated with plastic injection molding. The company, through innovative engineering, has pioneered a method of providing plastic molders an extended warranty program that guarantees no additional mold costs while using a BMJ mold. Company founder and CEO, Mike Eikenberry adds, ÂMold repair has always plagued companies because it is a variable cost. We have essentially made that a fixed cost under the BMJ program.Â
BMJ will offer the extended warranty program on any mold it designs and builds, and in some cases, on molds it rebuilds. ÂThere are several plans available.Â says Eikenberry. ÂSome allow for scheduled preventive maintenance and/or repair as needed. Alternatives are to simply send the customer the required details and instructions for proper mold maintenance and diagrams for in-house repair.Â
This dramatic step can be taken by the 37-year-old Kokomo, Indiana, company because as Eikenberry points out, ÂAll molds built by BMJ are designed to be easily repaired and maintained. It is all in the construction. High wear and/or weak steel areas are inserted with easy to remove and replace high quality steel inserts. Each inserted area has a specified location and identification indicated on location maps provided with the mold. Each insert is constructed in such a way as to make it impossible to install in the wrong place or incorrect orientation. Even ejector pins are identified in the same manner resulting in simplified replacement.Â
BMJÂs Premium Extended Warranty plan also allows for work to be sub-let to a local tool shop previously approved by the customer and BMJ, or molds can be shipped to BMJ for warranty service. ÂItÂs simple,Â says Eikenberry, Âwhatever works best for the customer.Â The Premium Extended Warranty Program at BJM Mold and Engineering is effective immediately.
