Injection Molding Enclosure


Deciding on the proper plastic manufacturing process for your enclosure project can be challenging.Some of the factors that will affect your decision when it comes to choosing the right plastic manufacturing process for your project.


Custom Plastic Injection Molding Enclosure

The plastic injection process is similar to a conventional process where solid plastic pellets are heated until they melt.Through a specialist machinery, a sheet of plastic is then turned into an enclosure shape.So how do you choose between these plastic manufacturing processes? Here are some pointers:


Speed to market

Since custom enclosure manufacturing usually takes a few weeks to a couple of weeks to prototype, this process can be quicker compared to injection molding.


Injection Molding or Custom Machining?Quantity is a crucial factor!

The amount of money that's required to produce a custom enclosure is also a factor that influences the cost of production.Since the process does not involve the use of tools and moulds, it's usually cheaper to produce a custom enclosure than a standard one.Custom enclosures are thus more cost-effective for prototype development and affordable for start-ups to test their market.


Enclosure design longevity

If you're planning on altering the design of your plastic case in the future, then it's not worth the time and money to invest in another mold tool.Instead, it's better to use a machine tool instead of a tool that's already been used. This saves a huge amount of money and allows you to work on different parts at any point. Another benefit of using plastic machining is that it allows you to change the design at any point.For instance, if you already have an existing case and want to add a component, just follow the steps mentioned above.


Use of advanced speciality plastics

Although injection molding is commonly used for enclosing plastic cases, many high-quality specialty plastics can only be manufactured through this process.Also, worth noting that with machining, you can have different material options within the same production run.
