We hear it all the time – and it is arguably the biggest challenge facing injection molders these days. We’re talking about the challenge of dealing with outrageously long lead times for new machinery orders.
Supply chain disruptions are taking their toll. Lead times that used to be unthinkable are now commonplace. Many OEM’s in North America are not able to fulfill a new injection molding machine order in less than a year, and some are telling customers their orders will be even longer than that.
So, how is it that LS Mtron Injection Molding Machines can produce new machinery, and have it on its way to customers in just 100 days?
Controlling the Supply Chain
LS Mtron was founded by South Korean tech giant LG Electronics over 50 years ago, to produce injection molding machines for use in their own factories worldwide. Today, in addition to their use at LG, LS Mtron machines are used by thousands of molders around the globe. The company produces over 2,800 new machines per year and is rapidly growing.
Known for its quality products in electronics, automotive, appliances and machinery, South Korea is also a USA-friendly trading partner. Machinery shipped to the US from South Korea has no duties or tariffs.
LS Mtron maintains total control over manufacturing its machines by leveraging the tremendous power of its founding company, LG Corporation, and its related spin-offs. This includes using Korean-made steel from an LS subsidiary, servo motors made by an LG-founded company, and more, including the ability to ship through another LG-related company, LX Pantos. This helps LS Mtron conquer the long lead times many others experience. This is why, when building a new molding machine, LS Mtron can achieve castings to cargo ready in 100 days.
