5 Advantages of Plastic Injection Moulding

Plastic Injection moulding is a popular way of producing plastic products because the method is extremely flexible. Here are 5 core advantages of using plastic injection moulding:

  1. Fast production & Great Efficiency

By using plastic injection moulding you can produce huge numbers of parts per hour. Depending on the tool each cycle could be just 15-30 seconds. The moulds are specifically designed for the product and the machine pre-programmed to the exact pressure required ensuring a seamless and efficient process.

  1. Material and Colour Flexibility

When having your tool made you can change the material and colour of the part that you’re producing. You can also use a variety of plastics simultaneously, which can be achieved through co-injection moulding. This helps to reduce the limitation of only using specific types of plastic.

  1. Labour Costs Low

Plastic injection moulding is an automated process performed through machines, which can regulate and manage the process. This highly reduces manufacturing costs because overheads will be extremely reduced. Your parts can be made with little or no labour on top of the production.

  1. Design Flexibility

Injection moulded parts have an almost limitless amount of flexibility, you just need to be able to design around certain restrictions. Our design guidelines can provide more detail on the design parameters of plastic injection moulding. Plastic injection moulding allows for intricate and multifaceted shapes within the design of the product and this would be extremely complicated to achieve through other moulding methods.

  1. Low Waste

With plastic waste being a hot topic, it is important to recognise that the majority of plastic waste from production can be recycled and it is often grinded up and reused.
