3 Reasons To Use Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic injection molding is by far the most common way of mass-producing plastic objects, but if you're new to the design and production game, here's a brief refresher. A material feeder, also known as a 'hopper,' is where plastic granules are poured; a heated barrel melts the granules down; a rotating and reciprocating screw mixes the molten plastic and creates the pressure needed for injection; and finally, a steel injection mold cavity tool, which is made to take on the shape of your final product.


Here are three incredible advantages of Plastic Injection Molding:

 

It’s Cost Effective:

 

The cost-effectiveness of plastic injection molding is one of its most enticing features. Manufacturing expenses and overheads are greatly lowered because the majority of the process is automated. Don't get us wrong: automation doesn't mean cutting shortcuts; on the contrary, it enables more precise and accurate plastic injection molds. The features of this process that drive precision include computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM).

 

It’s Sustainable:

 

Product designers (and the rest of us) are more conscious of factors in product design that benefit the environment and reduce waste. Plastic injection molding is environmentally friendly since it only utilizes as much plastic as is required to make the product. Not only that but any leftover plastic can be crushed up and recycled after usage.

 

It’s Adaptable:

 

Plastics in various forms? There's nothing to be concerned about. Multiple plastics can be utilized in co-injection molding, removing the burden of having to be exact. Co-injection molding machines are specifically developed to combine several types of plastics to make your desired final product with precision, so you won't lose any of the advantages of injecting with a single type of plastic.

 

Plastic injection molding is one of the most popular processes for producing plastic parts, and for good reason. If you are looking for injection molding services then call us today!
