Deciding which material to use is one of the first decisions that one must make when designing a new injection-molded product. The additives and material you choose considerably affect the look and feel of the part, what the process will be, and how the plastic will flow through the injection mold. Read as the experts at this plastic...
Injection mold gates are openings that enable liquid plastic to be injected into the mold. To determine the type of gate to use as well as the ideal location, it’s important to consider the type of product being manufactured. The gate’s size carries equal importance as it affects the quality of the finished part. Here, our plastic injection...
Picking the right injection molding company for creating quality plastic parts is quite important. If you pick the wrong company, you might end up with defective parts, the wrong material, and late deliveries. But telling the good manufacturers apart from the subpar ones isn’t easy. Here are some questions you can ask your plastic parts manufacturer to determine...
Injection molding is a manufacturing process that uses a mold to rapidly manufacture plastic parts in bulk. The raw material for injection mold is plastic resin, so we are mainly focus on plastic injection molding. When using injection molding to manufacture plastic parts, you first feed plastic pellets of your chosen material into the machine’s barrel through a...
Injection molding is a common technique used to make plastic items and parts. The process involves melting plastic pellets at high temperatures and passing the molten plastic into a plastic injection mold through a nozzle. The finished product is ejected from the mold after proper cooling. The final shape of the product depends on the mold design. This...
The manufacturing process can be a tad complex and there are a range of factors to take into account when selecting an injection molding partner that best suits your production requirements, unique products, and your industry. The best place to start is by gaining a rudimentary knowledge of the plastic injection molding process. This process uses plastic resins...
The use of gears can be traced back to ancient times when it was first made using stones. Today, we use injection molded plastic gears. Plastic gears didn’t promise many applications initially as operators weren’t sure how this material would perform when in contact with chemicals, moisture, and exposed to different temperatures. However, today, plastic gears have become...
Thermoplastics are the most common materials used in injection molding processes. ABS is a rigid and tough thermoplastic material used to produce several plastic parts for common and industrial use. The properties of the material give the parts increased tensile strength and durability. Moreover, plastic is relatively inexpensive, leading to lower production costs. Learn all about the ABS injection molding process...
We are seeing a dramatic shift in the world of transportation as more people are shifting away from traditional cars to get their hands on electronic vehicles. Sales of electric cars doubled in 2021 to a new record of 6.6 million and are projected to grow even further in 2022. The increase in demand for eco-friendly transportation options,...
