What is Injection Moulding?
Injection molding is a method to obtain molded products by injecting plastic materials molten by heat into a mold, and then cooling and solidifying them. The method is suitable for the mass production of products with complicated shapes and takes a large part in the area of plastic processing.

With the right tool design and a scientific molding approach to process optimization, injection molding can help manufacturers produce highly complex, detailed plastic parts in large volume with virtually no deviation.

The key to consistency is reliance on the comprehensive data collection and analysis techniques at the center of scientific molding, as well as the engineers trained in the process. Specialization is required to accurately develop and document the specifications, settings, and steps required to create a tightly controlled and repeatable manufacturing process.

The strength and durability of plastics have greatly increased over the years, and today’s lightweight thermoplastics can withstand even the harshest environments on par with — or better than — metal parts. There are countless engineered materials to choose from for constructing complex injection-molded applications. High-performance blends and hybrids can also be formulated to meet very specific part requirements and characteristics, such as high tensile strength.

Cost Savings
Labor costs are typically relatively low in plastic injection molding, in comparison with other types of molding. The ability to produce the parts at a very high level with a high output rate helps with its cost efficiency and effectiveness. The molding equipment typically runs with a self-gating, automatic tool to keep operations streamlined and production ongoing, requiring minimal supervision.

Choosing the right material and color for a project are two of the essential factors in creating plastic parts. Due to the wide variety of both, the possibilities are almost endless. The advances in polymers over the years have contributed to the development of a large selection of resins from which to choose. To ensure you select the right resin for your project, keep in mind the following variables: impact strength, tensile strength, a flexural modulus of elasticity, heat deflection, and water absorption.
