Low Volume Injection Molding Service

TEAM MFG is a OEM manufactuer, who speicialized in low volume injection molding. low volume plastic injection molding, low volume insert molding, low volume overmolding, low volume silicone rubber molding are our the scope of our low volume injection molding services. No matter for the low volume manufacturing or the mass production, we can offer the best solution to meet your needs,

What is the process of injection molding?

Inject molding is one of the manufacturing processes which widely used in volume prodcution. The basic working principle of injection molding process: the plastic is heated and melt in the injection machines, then inject the liquid material into the mold cavtiy, cooling down the plastic on mold, then eject our the form part. We can simply define the process by 5 steps, they are mold closed, injection, cooling period, resin plasticized, ejection. As injection molding process is stable, it is popular used in manufacturing, TEAM MFG is one of expert injection molding manufacturer in China, we understand the tooling and molding process, we apply the low volume molding service to make your custom parts at small volume.

What injection molding is used for?

As mentioned above, Injection molding process is widely used in plastic parts manufacturing, nearly all the plastic parts can be made by injection molding. It is a fast and stable process, which is used for large number of identical items from high precison engineering compoments to disposal consumer goods. The products by injection molding cover lots of industries such as medical, sport, electronic, transportaion, military, automotive etc, we can see the injecftion molded part easily on our daily life!

Plastic Injection Molding Types at TEAM MFG

As one of professional injection molding supplier in China, TEAM MFG can offer a series of injection molding types

  1. Prototype Mold - prototypes molding from 5 to 5000 parts.

  2. Bridge Mold - low volume production from 5000 to 100,000+ parts.

  3. Production Mold - mass prodcution for 100,000+ parts.

  4. Clear Plastic Molding - molding part in clear/transparent with glossy or texture finish.

  5. Unscrewing Mold - molding part with thread features.

  6. Insert Molding - molding metal, multiple metals or other materials into a single molding part.

  7. Overmolding - plastic overmolding on a metal, plastic or other materials to create a single molding part.

  8. Silicone Rubber Molding - molding parts in soft materals such as tpe, silicone, or other rubbers.

Advantages of Injection Molding

Injection molding is important process in manufacturing, here, we share the advantages of injection molding:

  1. Fast production and stable quality.

  2. Introducing automation to cut down labor costs.

  3. Design flexiblity.

  4. High-output from low volume molding to mass production.

  5. Diversities injection materials avaiblable.

  6. With low scarp rates under strict quality controls.

  7. Overmolding and insert molding available to reduce the secondary process and save costs.

  8. Hunderd thousands of colors can be chosen.

  9. Product consistant on every batch.

  10. Glossy and texture finishes directly on the mold.

  11. The injection molded parts can be strengthen.

Today, injection molding is not only used for medium and high volume production, it is one of the best process suitable for low volume manfuacturing, low volume production, high mix low-volume manufacturing, TEAM MFG is one of the expertise manufacturer who specialize in these volume manufacturing.

Low Volume Injection Molding 

Low volume injection molding also call short run injection molding, small run injection molding, low volume molding, it is a kind of injection molding process which used for on-demand custom low-volume plastic parts. It is popular due to the same high quality injection molded parts but less investment both on tooling and molding. 

Prototype Tooling for Low Volume Molding

Prototype tooling also known as soft tooling, it is one kind of rapid tooling. At TEAM MFG, typically the tooling material for prototpe tooling is aluminum, steel or Chinese P20, the tooling life time usaually at around 10,000 shots. This method is usually used for low volume injection molding, which the other prototyping methods can't reach as the parts needed in special properties which other prototyping materials can't acheive. In the other sides, some customers just need low volume injection molded parts to show the ideas to investors, or the designer just need low volume plastic parts worked as prototypes to test their design.

Bridge Tooling for Low Volume Manufacturing Up to 50,000+ Shots

Comparing to prototype tooling, bridge tooling is more strong, it has the longer tool life time up to 100,000 shots. At TEAM MFG, we ususally build our bridge tooling by better steel such as S136H, NAK80 etc with a standard mold base. This kind of tooling is good for the customers who have injection molding volume 1000 to 5000 parts per month, it is good to test the market and have design upgrade.
