The Reasons Why We Use Injection Molding


Injection Molding

 

It is fast. There is a reason why plastic injection molding is one of the most common technologies for extended production runs: it's fast. How fast? While the speed depends upon the complexity of the mold itself, generally only about 15 to 30 seconds pass between cycle times.

 

It is accurate. Plastic injection molding is such a precise method that it can fabricate almost every type of plastic part. There are certain design limitations, but the molds that are created allow the final product to be very precise. In reality, accuracy is typically within 0.005 inches.

 

It's resourceful. With so much attention being paid to sustainability nowadays, it's commonplace for product developers to choose processes that benefit the environment and minimize waste. Plastic injection molding isn't just an efficient, effective procedure, but additionally it is resourceful. That's because just as much plastic as is necessary is used to produce the part, and because surplus plastic can be ground up and recycled after use.

 

Low labor costs. Injection molding equipment typically runs with a self-gating, automated tool to keep operations streamlined and production ongoing, requiring minimal supervision.

 

Ideal for creating high-strength components. One cool advantage of plastic injection molding is that fillers can be added to components during processing, reducing the density of the liquid plastic when incorporating enhanced strength to the finished part. Plastic injection molding is an ideal process for businesses or products where parts need to be strong.

 

Flexibility. Besides being an accurate production process, plastic injection molding is also a flexible one. By this we mean that it's easy to change the type of material that's being produced in addition to the color that the item is being produced in.

 

A smooth finished appearance. Plastic Injection Molding is a process to produce parts that require little to no end finishing. That is because all parts that come out of the mold are about the closest thing to a finished look. Yes, the surface finish is really that good right out of the mold! That is why injection molding needs less labor.

 

Cheaper than plastic machining, long-term. The creation of a mold can be expensive, with the cost being a few thousand dollars. But after the mold is created, you can produce an extremely large volume of plastic components at a minimal cost. Because of this, large production runs using plastic machining can cost up to 25 times greater than plastic injection molding.

 

Co-injection molding. Injection molding machines have the ability to process a couple of different plastics at the same time.

 

It's widely used. Just look around -- you're sure to see loads of products which were likely made with the process.
