Injection Molding Service

Injection molding(Injection moulding) is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould, or mold, and then cooling and solidifying them.

 

The method is suitable for the mass production of products where the same part is being created thousands or even millions of times in succession. It is so popular, because of the dramatically low cost per unit when manufacturing high volumes. Injection molding offers high repeatability and good design flexibility. And it takes a large part in the area of plastic processing.

 

The main restrictions on Injection Molding usually come down to economics, as high start-up costs for tooling for the mold is required, meanwhile design changes are costly. Also, the turn-around time from design to production is slow (at least 4 weeks).

Injection molding capabilities

Rapid tooling

1000 min. order quantity, Low-cost tooling allows molded parts to be produced in as fast as 15 business days at affordable prices.

 

Production tooling

Ideal for large volume production of plastic injection molding parts. Tooling costs are higher than rapid tooling but has significantly cost per unit. The lead-time for production tooling usually takes around 4-5 weeks.

 

Multi-cavity molds

Best for high-volume, repeatable parts, multi-cavity molds contain identical cavities to increase throughput and achieve a lower favorable per-unit cost.

 

Family Molds

Family molds reduce tooling cost by accepting dissimilar shapes into the same mold. This process is ideal for intermediate-volume prototypes of various shapes by leveraging the manufacturing efficiency of molding with the flexibility of custom tooling

 

Overmolding

An existing molded part is installed in the mold, then covered with new material. This two-step process enables multi-material part design flexibility by creating molds with dissimilar materials of construction

Materials used for injection molding

All thermoplastic materials can be injection molded. Some types of silicone and other thermoset resins are also compatible with the injection molding process. The most commonly used materials in injection molding are:

 

 

Polypropylene (PP): 

The most common injection molding plastic material,excellent chemical resistance.

 

 

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS): 

Common thermoplastic with high impact resistance, low cost and low density

 

 

 

 

Polyethylene (PE): 

Good impact strength & weather resistance material

 

 

Polystyrene (PS): 

Lower cost material,not suitable for mechanical application

 

 

Nylon(PA6):

Engineering thermoplastic with excellent mechanical properties and high chemical & abrasion resistance.
