Injection Moulding Facts


  1. Injection moulding is a manufacturing process ideally suited to produce large quantities of identical, one piece components. Products produced can include; bottle lids, plastic combs, small pieces of furniture and many complex and automotive and electrical industries.


  1. The process used allows for high production output rates and you can even use inserts within the mould. This means fillers can be applied for added strength. As the process is fully automated, there is a relatively little labour contribution resolving in a cost effective solution.


  1. Injection moulding is preferred all around the world as you can use multiple materials whilst utilizing co-injection moulding. Recent advances in injection moulding technology have allowed the process to be expanded into more industries than were possible in previous years. The number of materials that can be used with injection moulding is expanding by more than 500 annually


  1. There is typically very little post production work required because the parts usually have a very finished look upon ejection. The specialty about the machine is that all scrap can be reground to be reused, making injection moulding a very eco-friendly solution.


  1. Printed Injection Mould Tools (PIMT) are now being used in correlation with 3-D printed inserts to form the basis of an injection mould. 3-D printed inserts are made from materials that are not resistant to high heat, so they are not suitable for large production runs. Instead, PMIT technology has become particularly helpful during the prototyping phase and part testing.


  1. Injection moulding uses a molten material which allows for a production of detailed and intricate parts. This means that the moulds themselves must be carefully designed. Once a mould is ready, the products it creates don’t often need modification.
