Injection Moulding FAQs
What is Plastic Injection Moulding?
Plastic injection moulding is a widely used manufacturing process for producing a vast range of plastic parts and products. It involves melting plastic material, injecting it into a specially designed mould or cavity, and allowing it to cool and solidify to take on the desired shape.
Why is injection moulding used for plastic?
Injection moulding is used for plastic because it offers numerous advantages that make it one of the most popular and efficient methods for producing plastic parts and products. High precision, efficiency, speed, versatility and consistency – these are the key reasons why injection moulding is the preferred choice for plastic.
What are the most common plastic materials used for injection moulding?
Injection moulding can be used with a wide variety of plastic materials, each with its own unique properties and characteristics such as Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polycarbonate (PC), Nylon (Polyamide, PA), Polyoxymethylene (Acetal, POM), Polyurethane (PU).
Why is injection moulding not suitable for large products?
Injection moulding is less suitable for large products due to limitations in mould size, equipment capacity, and material distribution challenges, which can result in uneven cooling and structural issues for larger items.
How do I know if injection moulding is the right process for my product?
Injection moulding may be the right process for your product if it involves producing high volumes of small to medium-sized plastic parts with precision and consistency, but you should consult with an experienced injection moulding tooling company to evaluate feasibility and cost-effectiveness for your specific project.
6. How long does it take to build an injection mould?
The time to build an injection mould tool can vary significantly depending on complexity, but it typically takes several weeks or months, including the design, machining and testing phases.
