What is Injection Molding?


It is a cost-effective way to create plastic parts in low to high volumes. The process involves injecting molten plastic material into a mold and ejecting the solidified parts. The injection molding process repeats a hundred or thousand times. The mold cost is amortized and drives down the injection molding cost per part to a few dollars or even less as the process uses the same mold to create each piece. The plastic molded parts have consistent quality. The molding process has more materials, colors, cosmetics, polishes, and surface finishing options than 3D printing or CNC machining.

Customized Injection Molding Cost - Overview


Customized injection molding doesn’t have any fixed cost. The cost for the custom injection molding production will depend on how you would like to use our services. Also, the various factors or requirements of your project will contribute to the overall price you need to pay. The cost of customized injection molding can be divided into two parts. First, the cost of the entire production operation. Second, the cost for the mold creation or tooling process.

 

Cost for the Entire Injection Molding Operation

The entire operation injection molding cost will be determined by the services you are using from the start of production until the production is finished. The cost will be included in the final products you receive once the production is finished. You will receive the final products according to your specified project requirements after paying the full cost of the entire injection molding operation. Some after-sales services will also require you to pay for the additional cost, such as when you need to revise the final products or make any alterations to your prototypes.

 

Injection Mold Cost/Rapid Tooling Cost

Creating the mold will also incur you some initial costs for the injection molding production. Often, the cost for the mold or the tooling process will be separated from the overall cost of the injection molding process. The injection mold cost will be payable during the initial stage of your injection molding process, after the blueprint design for the mold has been submitted to us.

 

The mold creation process might take some time to complete. It will depend on the complexity and features of the mold. Also, the production for the plastic parts can be started only after the mold is ready. You can use both rapid manufacturing or conventional manufacturing processes for the mold creation, each of which will also differ in price.

 

Important Aspects that Will Affect the Customized Injection Molding Cost

● The readiness of your design blueprint, as well as the complexity or intricacy of your product design.

● Raw materials you will use for the plastic products and mold, including the material type and grade or quality.

● The type of manufacturing technology to use, such as rapid manufacturing or conventional manufacturing.

● The tooling process and various aspects of the mold, including design, features, material, and so on.

● Your project requirements, which include the deadline you set for it.

Various additional processes involving the creation of your plastic products, such as branding, pad printing, and so on.


DIY Injection Molding or Outsourcing Services?


If you need some small volume parts(such as some simple plastic moulding trim) without excellent cosmetic and stable dimensions, DIY injection molding to mold these plastic moulding trim can be a solution. But if you need volume complex parts in good finish, pretty color, and excellent dimensions, outsourcing injection molding services should be the best option. You can but good quality parts with small costs in China, consider TEAM Rapid for your next projects! We also offer liquid silicone for molds!


Frequently Asked Questions


What Is Injection Molding?

Injection molding is a forming process by injecting molten material into a mold to produce parts in small volumes to 1,000,000 +. It can be performed with various materials such as elastomers, glasses, confections, thermoplastic, thermosetting polymers, and metals(for which the process is known as die casting).

What Is Plastic Injection Molding?

Plastic injection molding is a branch of injection molding. It is a cost-effective and reliable method to produce solid and plastic parts and products in any volume. The process involves high pressure to force a molten liquid polymer into a hollow mold. It is removed from the mold when the polymer is cooled and solidified, and the cycle repeats. Every repeated process is called a shot. The more shots mean the more number parts you have gotten.

How Much Does injection Molding Cost?

Injection molding costs can be $100 or far more than $100,000. Part material, part size, order size, part complexity, mold cavity numbers, molding cycle time, labor cost etc are the factors that affect the costs. Injection molding can be cheap over the long run, but the unit part price is high to set up for a small volume. We usually suggest that clients go ahead with injection molding for quantities over 500+ needs.

How Does Injection Molding Work(How Injection Molding Works)?

There are several steps for injection molding:
1. Get ready for the mold and injection material.
2. Pull up the mold and locate it on the injection machine.
3. Clamping.
4. Injection.
5. Dwelling and cooling.
6. Ejection.
7. Trim the gate if needed.

How to Make Injection Molds?

There are several steps to make injection molds:
1. Mold design.
2. Order steel and mold base.
3. Steel inspection.
4. Rough CNC process.
5. Heat treatment.
6. Fine CNC process.
7. Electrodes machining.
8. EDM & Wire EDM.
9. Polishing/Texture.
10. Mold components inspection.
11. Fitting & Assembly.
12. Mold trial.
Some steps can be parallel processed, such as we can do mold CNC machining and electrode machining in the meanwhile by two different machines. For prototype mold or bridge mold, heat treatment can be eliminated due to the less volume.

How Much Do Injection Molds Cost?

The mold cost ranges from 1000 USD to 100,000+ USD, which depends on the material, size, structure, complexity etc.
A simple, small, single-cavity open and closed steel mold can cost as little as 1000 USD.
A complex, large, multi-cavity, multi-sliders steel mold can cost upwards of 20,000 USD to 100,000+ USD.
