Overview of Injection MoldingManufacturers are constantly coming up with ways to make the cost of production lower and the quality and quantity of the product higher.

It is much quicker and cost-efficient than other methods of manufacturing. It has also given manufactures and designers more options for their products.

Cost-Efficient

Saving money on production is the biggest advantage of plastic injection molding. There is no cutting involved which means there is no scrap material that is wasted. Also, there is minimal finishing involved in plastic molding. Molding is also much quicker than other methods.

The Process

The mold is created and clamped. Plastic resin is then melted and injected into the mold where it is allowed to cool until it is solid. When it is sufficiently cooled, the piece in ejected from the mold. The finishing work consists of trimming off the excess plastic which is then reheated and recycled. The cycle continues with another batch of plastic resin. (more…)
