What Makes Plastic Injection Moulding So Popular?

Plastic injection moulding is a type of manufacturing that is used to produce plastic parts. People use it across many different industries from appliance manufacturing, and toy manufacturing to the healthcare sector. There are countless injection moulding applications as the manufacturing process is extremely versatile. It is one of the go-to types of manufacturing due to it being simple and more reliable than other methods, it is also very cost-efficient. Here at Stephens Plastic Mouldings, as part of the Stephens Group enterprise, we are proud to have been manufacturing plastic mouldings for years. Equipped with the team, the machinery, and the skills, we can support even the most diverse areas of injection moulding applications.

Here Are Some Key Advantages Of Plastic Injection Moulding:

1. High Efficiency and Fast Production

There are many reasons why injection moulding applications belong to all sorts of industries, and one of them is the fact that plastic injection moulding is incredibly efficient. The process itself is very fast in comparison to other manufacturing methods and has a very high production output rate. The speed of injection moulding will of course vary from project to project (and of course the machines used). However, on average only about 15-120 seconds pass between each cycle time.

As a result of the short period between cycles, a larger quantity of moulds can be produced in a limited amount of time – therefore increasing potential revenue and profit margins.

2. Complex Parts

At Stephens Plastics we have the capacity to accommodate complex injection moulding applications, whilst still guaranteeing uniformity across even the largest batches of products. Key design elements will be taken into account during the design process, in order to optimise the effectiveness of high volume injection moulding whilst retaining the quality and precision that you need. Getting the design right is imperative, as the wrong design could create costly mistakes. The right design will allow parts to be made consistently and of high quality.

3. Strength

Strength is a key factor that must be determined when designing a plastic injection moulded part. We’ll work with you to establish if any parts of the product need to be flexible and which parts will be rigid in order to adjust the integrating ribs or gussets and ensure your product will come outfit for purpose every time.

4. Plenty Of Choices

When it comes to creating plastic parts, choosing the right material and colour is essential. At Stephens Plastic Mouldings, we have a wide variety of both. Meaning the possibilities are endless when it comes to manufacturing plastic parts.

5. Low Labour Costs

Labour costs are relatively low in plastic injection moulding, due to the fact that the moulding equipment is mostly automatic and once going, requires little input from our technicians. As it can produce parts at a high output rate too with minimal supervision, it is highly cost-effective.
