From plastic trinkets and toys to automotive parts, bottles, and containers to cell phone cases, the plastic injection molding process has been widely used to make parts and components. In fact, many of the products we use in our daily lives are made using this injection molding technology. But why do manufacturers prefer this injection molding technology to make plastic products? The answer is that technology offers a variety of benefits. Here are some of them.
Suitable for producing complex and precise products
Freedom to choose from a wide range of materials
Reduced manufacturing costs
Highly efficient production method
Generate less waste and go green
One of the main advantages of plastic injection molding technology is the ease with which complex plastic precision parts and assemblies can be designed. Compared to other technologies, injection molding will be found to feature very small tolerances. For this reason, it is also widely used for the production of automotive parts.
There are a large number of plastic materials available for the plastic injection molding process. There are materials such as antistatic plastics, thermoplastic rubber, chemical resistant plastics, and bio-compostable materials with color matching or masterbatch coloring.
Injection molding is an automated process. Since automation reduces manufacturing costs, overhead costs are also reduced. In addition, with the reduction of labor, the total cost of manufacturing products is also reduced.
Once the injection mold is designed according to the specifications given by the customer and the injection molding machine is pre-programmed, the actual molding process used to produce the part becomes very fast. The mold is locked before the melt is injected during molding, and because the melt, which has good flow, causes little wear on the mold cavity, large quantities of injection molded products can be produced in one set of molds. High productivity makes plastic injection molding efficient and cost-effective as well.
For injection molding, the repeatability factor of parts is very high. Even straight sprue and runners (i.e., the residual plastic pieces produced by tunneling plastic from where they reach the actual mold) can be reground for material reuse.
With all these advantages in mind, it is easy to understand that injection molding technology is a very beneficial, useful, and efficient process for producing a wide range of plastic products.
