Plastic Injection Moulding is the process of forcing melted plastic in to a mould. Once the plastic has cooled, the part can be ejected. Injection moulding is often used in mass-production and prototyping. Plastic injection moulding is one of the main processes for producing plastic products. It is the most efficient way to produce any plastic article due to its fast process and high production capabilities for a comparatively low cost, in a variety of materials.
The plastic Injection Moulding Process
The process involves melting either thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic and injecting it into an aluminium or steel mould in the shape of the desired product, then cooling. The cooled product is then ejected from the plastic injection moulds in its finished state; it’s an extremely simple process with very minimal labour costs and fast turnaround on product.
