5 Major Advantages to Using Plastic Injection Molding for the Manufacturing of Parts
1. Precisionplastic injection moulding part
Plastic injection moulding is perfect for very intricate parts. Compared to other techniques, moulding allows you to incorporate more features at very small tolerances. Have a look at the image to the right. You can hold this moulding in the palm of your hand and it has bosses, ribs, metal inserts, side cores and holes made with a sliding shut off feature in the tool. That's an awful lot of features on a small part!
2. Material choice
There's a vast amount of materials available for plastic injection moulding. A range of standard materials, but also things like antistatic plastic, thermoplastic rubber, chemical resistant plastics, infrared, biocompostable...and with colour compounding or masterbatch colouring you have an endless choice of colours as well. The moulding above is boring black, but it's made out of PPO which is an extremely rigid and flame-retardant material.
3. Automation to Save Manufacturing Costs
Plastic injection molding is an automated process. A majority of the injection molding process is performed by machines and robotics which a sole operator can control and manage. Automation helps to reduce manufacturing costs, as the overheads are significantly reduced. Furthermore, with reduced labor force the overall cost of manufacturing the parts is reduced and this cost saving can easily be passed on to the customer.
4. High Efficiency
Once the injection molds have been designed to the customer’s specifications and the presses pre-programmed, the actual molding process is very quick compared to other methods of molding. Plastic injection molding process hardly takes times and this allows more parts to be manufactured from a single mold. The high production output rate makes plastic injection molding more cost effective and efficient.
5. And for the green-minded - little waste
Part repeatability is very high for injection moulding. Even the sprues and runners (the leftover bits of plastic created by the 'tunnels' through which the plastic material reaches the actual mould) can be reground and the material reused. You can explore this in more detail on our environmental impact of injection moulding page.
