The injection moulding process is one of the preferred methods for manufacturing parts & products. It has many advantages and is extremely versatile. After the moulds have been designed to the customer’s specifications, injection moulding is simple, reliable & also efficient.
Efficient & Cost-Effective
Once the mould is in place & the press is pre-programmed, plastic injection moulding takes very little time – allowing for a high production rate from a single mould.
Due to the extreme high pressure during the injection moulding process, the plastic is pressed hard against the mould. This high pressure allows complex and intricate designs to be integrated into the mould design so they can easily be manufactured at no extra cost.
It is possible to use fillers or blowing agent in injection moulds. These blowing agents can be used to reduce the density of the plastic to make it less rigid but still remain a similar structure.
The majority of the injection moulding process is performed by machines which a single operator can manage & control. This helps reduce the manufacturing costs bringing the individual piece price down, which can be passed on to the customer.
Due to the precision of the machinery, very little waste is produced. The majority of the waste that is produced is reground & re-used.
