What is Injection Molding?
Injection Molding is the process of injecting plastic into an aluminum or steel mold to form the part. Injection molding is a great process for low and high volume manufacturing. It is widely used in the medical, automotive, industrial, construction and consumer product industries. Some advantages of injection molding are high production rates, repeatable high tolerances, the ability to use a wide range of materials, low labor cost, minimal scrap losses, and little need to finish parts after molding. Some disadvantages of this process are expensive equipment investment, potentially high running costs, and the need to design moldable parts.
