Injection moulding is one of the key processes for producing plastic articles. It is a quick process and is used to create huge numbers of identical items from high precision engineering components to disposable consumer goods. Injection mouldings count up a significant proportion of all plastics products from micro parts to large components. Practically all sectors of manufacturers use injection moulded parts. The flexibility in shape and size possible through use of this process has constantly extended the margins of design in plastics and enabled significant replacement of traditional materials.
The basic injection mold making process is as follows:
- Products design department provides product information to the injection mold design department, injection mold designers complete cost analysis and provide it to the manager.
