Email marketing is the oldest form of online marketing, and it's only gotten more bigger as the use of email increases. No matter how many new types of marketing come into being, from video to social media, none ever replaces email marketing as a way to market products and generate visitors.

Email marketing is the oldest form of online marketing, and it's only gotten more bigger as the use of email increases. No matter how many new types of marketing come into being, from video to social media, none ever replaces email marketing as a way to market products and generate visitors. The following email marketing techniques have been shown to work well.

Our first item is to mention that one of the keys to sustainability with email list marketing is to keep things ethical and upfront at all times. Just doing that helps to build trust and solidify your relationship with subscribers which is crucial to success. Naturally, avoiding even the appearance of spam-like behavior is of utmost importance. As you probably know, one practice with email spammers is they purposely make it hard to get away from them - unsubscribe. However, for honest marketers that's never a problem because any auto responder service that is used will require the inclusion of an unsubscribe link in each email. That is a necessary step, but for honest marketers there's never a problem with that. That is also a measure that can help you, too. But it's also a trend that has been going on because countries all around the world are concerned about the spam problem. There are only good reasons for doing things the right way, perhaps the most important reason is it will be more profitable. Giving your subscribers and potential customers as much control as possible helps them to feel like you have respect for them, and that will go far and speak volumes for you. Using ethical standards in all your email campaigns will help to make your success a long-term proposition.

You can also use the technique of offering your subscribers a bribe. Everyone likes to receive gifts or something for nothing. By delivering free bribes or gifts to your subscribers, you can boost your subscription rate and grow your list. This idea can be profitable for you by using it on two separate groups.

It can be used as a way to bring you fresh subscribers, but it can also be used to get your current subscribers to work on your behalf to bring you more traffic. This is how you grow your list and also make the most out of it. If you want to get more subscribers, conversions and sales you have to apply tactics like this. Free offers also have the potential to turn viral if enough people forward the message and bring you more traffic.

Focus on your stats and on what they say. Of email marketing services give you the information on where your current campaign will carry you and what your stats are. You must be sure to monitor all activity from your clicks and opens to unsubscribes. When you're just getting starting with your campaign, try out different types of formats and place your link in different areas to see how your subscribers respond back. Compare the outcome and see how it is possible for improvement.

Injection molding is a popular manufacturing method for many reasons. It has proven especially valuable to those in the consumer product development sector, since plastics are a primary component of many consumer products, and injection molding is one of the best ways to manufacture plastics. Let’s take a quick look at the three major phases of the injection molding process, and then discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the process.

Injection Molding Process, Basic Step 1: Product Design 

Design is one of the most important facets of the production process because it’s the earliest opportunity to prevent expensive mistakes later on. (Of course, determining whether you have a good idea in the first place is also important, but more on that here.) There are many objectives to design for: function, aesthetics, manufacturability, assembly, etc. The right design is one that accomplishes the required objectives to a satisfactory level, but it may take a lot of creativity to get there. Product design is most often accomplished with computer aided design (CAD) software, like SolidWorks. (Click here for nine pro tips on how to best use SolidWorks in design and engineering.) Proficiency with CAD software is vital because it allows for quicker iterations and more accurate prototyping if necessary.M

Design and engineering for injection molding 

Some specific ways to avoid costly mistakes during the product design process are to plan for uniform wall thickness whenever possible, and to gradually transition from one thickness to another when changes in thickness are not avoidable. It is also important to avoid building stress into the design, such as corners that are 90 degrees or less. (Read more about Injection Molding Defects here.) 

A skilled team of design engineers will be able to brainstorm, design, and improve upon a variety of solutions to meet the particular complexities of a specific project. The design team at Creative Mechanisms has combined decades of experience creating elegant solutions to complex problems. Meet some of our team here, here, or here, or visit our Customer Testimonials page to see what previous and current clients have to say about our product design capabilities. We think you’ll be impressed.

Injection Molding Process, Basic Step 2: Mold Design 

After a looks-like, feels-like design has been tested and slated for further production, the mold (or die) needs to be designed for injection mold manufacturing. Molds are commonly made from these types of metals: 

Hardened steel: Typically the most expensive material to use for a mold, and generally the longest-lasting (which can drive down price per unit). This makes hardened steel a good material choice for products where multiple hundreds of thousands are to be produced. Prehardened steel: Does not last as many cycles as hardened steel, and is less expensive to create. Aluminum: Most commonly used for single cavity "Prototype Tooling" when a relatively low number of parts are needed for testing. Once the injection molded parts from this tool are tested and approved, then a multi cavity steel production tool is produced. It is possible to get many thousands of parts from an aluminum tool but typically it is used for lower quantities. 

Beryllium-Copper alloy: Typically used in areas of the mold that need fast heat removal or where shear heat is concentrated. 

Creating Prototypes In Injection Molding MaterialJust as with overall product design, mold design is another opportunity to prevent defects during the injection molding process. We have previously written blogs on the Top 10 Injection Molding Defects and Avoiding Mistakes in Injection Molding, but here are some examples of how poor mold design can be a costly mistake: 

Not designing the proper draft: This refers to the angle at which the finished product is ejected from the mold. An insufficient draft can lead to ejection problems, costing significant time and money. Improperly placed or sized gates: Gates are the openings in a mold through which thermoset or thermoplastic material is injected. Each will leave a vestige (scar), which can create aesthetic or functional problems if not properly placed. 

The number of parts (cycles) required, as well as the material they will be made of will help drive decision-making as to how and with what materials to create the mold.

Injection Molding Process, Basic Step 3: The Manufacturing Process 

When a product has been properly designed, approved, and die cast, it’s time to start the actual manufacturing! Here are the basics of the injection molding process… 

Thermoset or thermoplastic material in granular form is fed through a hopper into a heating barrel. (Learn more about the differences between plastics in our PLASTICS course.) The plastic is heated to a predetermined temperature and driven by a large screw through the gate(s) and into the mold. Once the mold is filled, the screw will remain in place to apply appropriate pressure for the duration of a predetermined cooling time. Upon reaching this point, the screw is withdrawn, the mold opened, and the part ejected. Gates will either shear off automatically or be manually removed. This cycle will repeat over and over, and can be used to create hundreds of thousands of parts in a relatively short amount of time.

DIY Injection Molding 

I wanted to make solid plastic parts for some of my amateur science experiments. There are a number of ways to make things out of plastic, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Often just cutting raw material to the desired shape works best. Some plastics can be cast by pouring a liquid resin with hardener into a mold (see “DIY Rotocaster,” Make: Volume 41). Vacuum forming works well for making things out of thin sheets of plastic (see “Kitchen Floor Vacuum Former,” Make: Volume 11). I considered making a 3D printer, but for the few plastic parts I envisioned needing, it wasn’t worth the time and money.
Plastic injection molding has been around since thermoplastics were invented. It’s a great way to make many copies of a part quickly, and what I like best is that it’s easy to reuse old plastic objects to make new ones.

So I built an injection molder based on the plans in Vincent R. Gingery’s book Secrets of Building a Plastic Injection Molding Machine. David Gingery could be considered a forerunner of the Maker Movement — he and his son Vincent have written a whole series of books on building tools for the machine shop.

This project should cost between $100 and $200. It depends a lot on where the metal is purchased. I had a lot of the metal already, left over from other projects. Try to find a friendly local iron dealer, rather than getting the metal online or from a hardware store. They’ll often let you pick through their cut-off pile and sell it for almost scrap prices.

The basic idea in Prototype model is that instead of freezing the requirements before a design or coding can proceed, a throwaway prototype is built to understand the requirements. This prototype is developed based on the currently known requirements. Prototype model is a software development model. By using this prototype, the client can get an “actual feel” of the system, since the interactions with prototype can enable the client to better understand the requirements of the desired system. Prototyping is an attractive idea for complicated and large systems for which there is no manual process or existing system to help determining the requirements. 


The prototype are usually not complete systems and many of the details are not built in the prototype. The goal is to provide a system with overall functionality. 

Advantages of Prototype model:

Users are actively involved in the development 
Since in this methodology a working model of the system is provided, the users get a better understanding of the system being developed. 
Errors can be detected much earlier. 
Quicker user feedback is available leading to better solutions. 
Missing functionality can be identified easily 
Confusing or difficult functions can be identified 
Requirements validation, Quick implementation of, incomplete, but functional, application. 


Disadvantages of Prototype model:

Leads to implementing and then repairing way of building systems. 
Practically, this methodology may increase the complexity of the system as scope of the system may expand beyond original plans. 
Incomplete application may cause application not to be used as the 
full system was designed 
Incomplete or inadequate problem analysis. 


When to use Prototype model: 

Prototype model should be used when the desired system needs to have a lot of interaction with the end users. 
Typically, online systems, web interfaces have a very high amount of interaction with end users, are best suited for Prototype model. It might take a while for a system to be built that allows ease of use and needs minimal training for the end user. 
Prototyping ensures that the end users constantly work with the system and provide a feedback which is incorporated in the prototype to result in a useable system. They are excellent for designing good human computer interface systems .

Rotary kilns are used to uniformly heat lime, cement, carbon, fertilizer, stone and other aggregate materials. As the kiln turns the heated material is mixed, and new material becomes exposed to the flames and hot combustion gasses. Kilns are typically heated by a large flame introduced at the exit end of the process. The hot combustion gasses are then passed along the length of the kiln in a counter-flow direction. Many plants capture the hot gasses as they escape the entry end, and use this heat to pre-heat the product before it enters the kiln.

Kiln plants with two and three station rotary kilns from KHD Humboldt Wedag are top of the line. One reason: highly efficient precalcining systems, which were developed by KHD Humboldt Wedag, revolutionizing the clinkering process.

Rotary kilns no longer have to function as calciners which mean that they can be substantially smaller in size. The advantage for customers is lower investment and operating costs. These systems quickly gained excellent reputations among our customers.

Rotary dryers are almost always used for drawing moisture out of a material. Typically, they operate at temperatures between 800º – 1400ºF. Rotary kilns, however, are concerned with causing a chemical reaction. Therefore, they need to operate at much higher temperatures, between 1000º – 3000º.

Rotary kilns are designed to withstand much higher temperatures than a rotary dryer. Typically, if you are dealing with a direct fired rotary kiln, it is refractory lined with a brick or castable lining. This lining protects the steel shell. Rotary dryers are typically not lined, and their steel is not able to withstand such high temperatures. If you are dealing with an indirect rotary kiln, the kiln is not normally lined, so the shell of the drum has to be made out of a temperature resistant alloy instead of steel.
