Plastic injection molding
Injection molding process refers to the process of producing a semi-finished product of a certain shape by pressing, injecting, cooling and disintegrating.
Injection moulding can be performed with a host of materials mainly including metals, (for which the process is called die-casting), glasses, elastomers, confections, and most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers.
Advantage: Injection molding is the most common modern method of manufacturing plastic parts; it is ideal for producing high volumes of the same object. High efficiency & precise, can realize automation operation. The products can be shaped by simple to complex, from small to big. What’s more, the injection products are easier upgrading. The technology is suitable for mass production with complex shape product and processing field. The mold lifetime is long, the cycle time is short.
Application of plastic injection molding technology:
Injection moulding is used to create many things such as wire spools, packaging, bottle caps, automotive parts and components, gameboys, pocket combs, some musical instruments (and parts of them), one-piece chairs and small tables, storage containers, mechanical parts (including gears), and most other plastic products available today.
