What is thermoplastic injection molding?
Thermoplastic injection molding is the process of melting plastic pellets and injecting this liquid plastic into a metal mold. When cooled, the plastic takes on the shape of the mold cavity. An injection molding machine allows us to automate this process to create a high volume of parts with great consistency.
What are some of the advantages to injection molding?
For some of the following reasons, injection molding is a popular choice for high volume orders.
- Automated process makes for faster production speeds.
- Less manual labor reduces production costs.
- High level of repeatability.
