Injection Moulding

Injection moulding is one of the prime process for producing plastic parts. It is a great process for producing large volumes of identical parts at a fast pace. This process is suitable for both high precision engineering components right the way through to disposable consumer goods.

 

Most thermoplastics can be processed by Injection Moulding and count for the majority of all plastic products. Virtually all sectors of manufacturing use injection moulded parts.

 

Here is a list of the typical materials used: 

 

  • Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene ABS
  • Nylon PA
  • Polycarbonate PC
  • Polypropylene PP
  • Polystyrene GPPS

 

Injection moulding is a flexible process in which adapts to various plastic shapes and sizes making it possible to design even the most difficult of parts, these can include products such as; disposable razors, electrical switches, power-tool housing and automotive bumpers.

 

At CJ Tool and Mouldings, we can help you get the perfect design whilst potentially making you a cost saving. This is through our addition no charge service known as the ‘Innovation Filter’. It is within this service where our experienced team will identify areas of improvement at every step of the injection moulding process. To find our more, follow the link, innovation filter.

 

In summary, the injection moulding process consists of adding the selected material into the specialist machine via a hopper. The machine consists of a heated barrel equipped with a reciprocating screw. This feeds the molten polymer into a temperature controlled split mould via a channel system of gates and runners. The polymer is injected into a mould tool that defines the shape of the moulded part.
