Plastic Injection Moulding Process
The manufacturing process of plastic mouldings is ideal for creating customised moulded parts for almost any industry.
First, we fit the desired mould (made to your custom requirements) and then plastic pellets are fed into our modern injection moulding machines that range from 30 to 150 tonnes in size. Molten plastic is created from these melting plastic pellets and this is injected into the mould cavity. The plastic cools and solidifies to the cavity’s configuration and shape. The mould opens to eject your part and is ready to start the process again to complete your order of injection moulded parts.
This process allows high-volume production of moulded parts and countless variations to suit your needs, enabling you to customise your tooling, materials, thermoplastics and colours.
Injection Moulding vs CNC Machining
Injection moulding creates through addition while CNC (computer numerical control) machining creates through subtraction.
CNC machining uses milling tools to cut away from a larger solid piece of material to carve out your desired shape, using instructions controlled by a digital file.
On the other hand, injection moulding fills a mould tool of your desired shape with molten plastic to solidify into the part you need.
Because of the difference in speed, timings and overall methodology, injection moulding as a manufacturing process promises a better price per part, especially when working with large volumes. It is the ideal process for producing a high volume of plastic parts.
Markets & Industries
Our custom plastic moulding clients form part of a wide range of markets, including but not limited to:
We can serve our clients in these diverse sectors because of our ability to manufacture both small and large volumes of bespoke plastic injection moulding parts at the best price.
Our procurement network includes suppliers from Europe, North America and Asia.
