Injection Molding Service
What Are Plastic Injection Molding Services?
Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould, or mold. Injection moulding can be performed with a host of materials mainly including metals (for which the process is called die-casting), glasses, elastomers, confections, and most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed (using a helical screw), and injected into a mould cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity. After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, moulds are made by a mould-maker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminium, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection moulding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest components to entire body panels of cars.
Advantages of Injection Molding
Injection molding is plastic manufacturing process that can produce high quality parts at scale. It’s typically used for low- to high-volume production but our aluminum tooling can also make prototyping runs economical.
1. Low cost at higher volumes
2. Exceptional part cosmetics and surface finish
4. Complex parts
5. Low scrap rate
6. Large selection of thermoplastic and thermoset materials
