Plastic Injection Molding

High-Precision Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic injection molding can best be defined as the process of converting molten plastic into semi-finished and finished goods. Thermoplastic polymer pellets like acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polycarbonate (PC), polyethylene (PE), and others are fed from a holding funnel into a conveyor. 

The plastic is melted to a predetermined temperature for a specific duration of time, and then directed to a mold, which forms the plastic into the desired part. The mold itself determines the part’s size, configuration, and dimensions. After the part is created, the mold is immediately cooled, and the part is removed from the mold.

The end result is a lightweight molded plastic component. Plastic molded parts can withstand extremely harsh environments and typically have fantastic mechanical properties, including exceptional impact resistance and chemical resistance. This makes them well-suited for a wide array of applications and products.

Prototype Injection Molding & Production Capabilities

Maintaining a competitive advantage in today’s markets means introducing new products and product upgrades faster than your competitors. The company that shortens its time for new designs and upgrades will reap the rewards. This is where plastic injection molding truly shines. Injection molding isn’t just for producing large volumes of semi-finished and finished goods. It also plays a vital role in prototype manufacturing.

A faster turnaround on prototypes through plastic injection molding means engineers and designers can immediately ascertain the new design’s viability. If that plastic component is part of a larger assembly, engineers can quickly determine if the component fits or if further design changes are needed.

We can create the precise mold necessary based on various factors such as precision of the cavity size, position of the cavity and the number of cavities in the mold design—just to name a few. With our processes, the options are endless. We will create a prototype or end use product to fit your exact specifications. We do rigorous tryout testing to ensure all prototypes are up to the tasks that are required of them.

Press Size & Capabilities

We have a variety of press sizes to choose from. Depending on how much clamping force or pressure is required for your specific mold, our machines are equipped to handle various tonnages. Our state-of-the-art machines can handle multiple press runs.

Plastic Injection Molding Applications

You’ll find plastic-injection molded components in your car, in your house, when you’re out and about, and when using your mobile phones. We rely on plastic every single day. Some plastic products help protect our loved ones, and others help simplify how we work, play, and live. Read our blog about more plastic injection applications here.

While it’s pretty easy to pinpoint the benefits for consumers, there are other critical industrial and commercial applications for plastic parts. The automotive, transportation and aerospace industries are heavily reliant on plastic to reduce the weight of their frames, components, and subcomponent parts. For these companies, reducing the overall weight of cars, trucks, and airplanes is critical to optimizing fuel efficiency. The electronic, construction, pharmaceutical, and agricultural industries also depend on plastic components.

Two Shot Molding

Two-shot molding allows us to create multi-material or multi-colored prototypes and parts without adding extra assembly steps. These process is a great way to achieve efficient and cost-effective manufacturing that is guaranteed to produce durable components. Two-shot molding allows for extra flexibility with designing prototypes since it allows us to make complex geometries with more aesthetically pleasing parts.

In-Mold Electronics

In-Mold Electronics is an integrated technology with injection molding and printing circuits, and is derived from the traditional In-Mold Labeling and In-Mold Circuit process. IME changes the traditional manufacturing process from PCB to the printed circuits, mounts components including resistor, capacitor, photoelectric sensor, LED and IC on the film. This process offers significant cost reduction, easy assembly and light weight options.
