The basics of Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic injection molding is a methodology that impels liquid plastic into a specific mold to make fully customized things like name plates, plaques, different types of signs and products related to branding elements. Once the plastic gets completely cooled, it is released from the mold to create an array of plastic parts for different types of purposes and industries.

The most popular use of injection mold equipment is made in:

  • Name plates of appliances
  • Name plates for industrial equipments
  • Branding and the license plates of the vehicles
  • Emblems of the cars
  • Recreational products and product identification

Trends in India’s Plastic Mold Industry

More than 90% of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) in India is consumed in food packaging with drinks/beverages forming almost 80% of the food packaging segment. As such there is a constant demand for high quality of products and services from plastic mold manufacturer. On this score, Acme Disys, a New Delhi-based company has risen to the occasion in providing preform mold solutions on a turnkey basis.

These molds range from 4 to 750 grams with neck sizes varying from 12 to 150 mms and Cap molds up to 72 cavities. On their part, the actual users look out for specially designed modular concepts that facilitate simplified exchange of inserts, simplified usage, low maintenance and problem free user benefits. This ISO certified company is also engaged in the design and manufacture of injection mold equipment to suit the customers’ needs.

On February 09, 2015, a global market research agency released the findings of its study titled ‘India – Recycling PET Market Outlook to 2019 – Growth Led by Inclining PET Bottle Availability and Production Capacity’. This study conducted in October, 2014 provides a comprehensive analysis of the of the various aspects such as market size, segmentation by end uses and future projections of the recycled polyester staple fibre, polyester sheets or films and polyester straps. This report also has covered prevalent trends and developments in the recycling PET industry, Government regulations, growth drivers and SWOT (strengths-weaknesses-opportunities-threats) analysis of the industry.

Challenges in PET Packaging

A recent survey projected that the global plastics industry has witnessed a continuous shift of production bases to low-cost Asian countries. With increasing foreign investment and rise in the number of new manufacturing establishments in the region, Asia has become the largest and the fastest growing market for plastics in the world.

In particular, India has turned out to be a fertile ground for the packaging sector representing almost 60.0% that is expected to reach 10.0 million tonnes by 2020. On this score, China has posed quite a tough challenge. This is the scenario for the FMCG sector whose products solely rely on plastic based packaging of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) technology.

These trends have been a boon for plastic mold manufacturer since PET bottles, jars and allied containers with higher shelf value and attractive features have literally replaced glass and other materials. In this context, the user of the packaging facilities has to rely on a reliable and reputed manufacturer of molds such as the New Delhi-based Acme Dysis for solutions on a turnkey basis.

Plastic Injection Molding in a Nutshell

There are many conspicuous examples of moulds in our daily life. Have you ever wondered that how various objects around us acquire their shape? The answer to this is injection Molding (IM). The idea was conceived in 1930s and gained popularity when manufacturing plastic commodities led to greater scrap wastes and extended production time while devising alternative manufacturing technique.

Difference between injection molding and conventional metal die casting

The basic difference between injection molding molds and metal die casting is that the latter requires molten material (metal) to be poured in the casting; however, the former needs the melted plastic residuals to be injected forcefully into the mold.

 What kind of plastic is suitable for molding machines?

 The notion of using ‘any kind’ of plastic for getting the desired shape is gravely wrong. Thermostat plastics such as nylon, polystyrene, polythene and polypropylene are ideal for IM technique. Continue reading
