What Is Injection Moulding in Plastic?

Injection Molding

Plastic injection molding products is the most commonly used manufacturing process for plastic parts. The plastic is melted in an injection molding machine and then injected into a mold, where it cools and solidifies into the final part.

This is a rapid manufacturing process that can produce large quantities of identical plastic products in a short period of time.

High-performance plastic materials that can withstand high temperatures are replacing the metals traditionally used to make plastics.

Plastic injection molding is a common method of producing plastic parts used in the medical, aerospace, automotive and toy industries.

Plastic injection molding may seem like a very complicated process to people making complex products, but it's not.

Many Common Products

In fact, many common products, including many disposable products, are made using this industrial technology, such as Lego bricks and plastic cutlery.

As a result, the number of applications, and the number of potential products that can be produced, is infinite, and of course it is important to remember that the process must be carefully designed and produced to produce accurate molds.

What uses can injection molding be used for?

Injection molding is used to manufacture a wide variety of widely used products. If you look around your desk/house, you will find a large number of injection-molded products, including bottle tops, remote control cases, console caps, syringes and most plastic products.
