Injection moulding is a fast and efficient way to produce large quantities of uniform, high-quality parts. It is also highly versatile, allowing for the production of complex shapes and a wide range of materials.
Overall, it is a versatile and widely used manufacturing process that allows for the production of a wide range of products with a high degree of precision and consistency.
How do we work with injection moulding companies?
Although not all our graphics and coating methods can be applied during injection moulding, we can assist in the following ways:
- It uses thermoplastic raw materials and others (acrylic, nylon, PVC etc.) to form products.
- Our paints are suitable for printing on these materials in order to give a permanent result
- Our post mould label-free graphics systems are definitely an option worth considering. Please contact us to discuss application methods and suitability
- Regardless of which raw material you use for injection moulding in your factory, whether they are thermoplastics or not, we can supply you with a suitable paint system and method to mark it.
- We can supply functional coatings e.g. antistatic, anti-slip, flame-retardant
How does it work?
Injection moulding is a manufacturing process in which melted plastic or other materials are injected into a mould to create a variety of products, such as automotive parts, medical devices, and consumer products.
The process begins by melting the material in a barrel using heat and pressure, before injecting it into a cooled mould under high pressure. The material then solidifies within the mould, taking on the shape of the mould cavity.
Rapid & micro injection moulding
There are two main types of injection moulding:
Here is a brief overview of each:
Rapid injection moulding is a manufacturing process that uses technology to produce parts quickly and efficiently. It involves injecting molten plastic or other materials into a mould under high pressure, allowing the material to cool and solidify into the desired shape.
One of the key benefits is its speed, as it can produce parts much faster than traditional manufacturing methods. Additionally, it is highly accurate and produces parts with consistent quality.
Rapid injection moulding is often used to produce small, complex parts for a variety of industries, including automotive, medical, and consumer products. It is also an environmentally friendly process, as it generates minimal waste and can be used with recycled materials.
Micro injection moulding is a manufacturing process that involves injecting small amounts of molten material into a mould to produce precise, miniature parts. It is a specialized service that requires precise control over the injection process to produce parts with dimensions on the micro scale, typically less than 1 millimeter in size.
Furthermore, it is used to produce a wide range of micro components, including medical devices, electronics, and automotive parts. It offers a high level of precision and accuracy, as well as the ability to produce parts with complex geometries.
One of the key benefits is its cost-effectiveness, as it allows manufacturers to produce small quantities of high-quality parts at a lower cost than other manufacturing methods.
