Plastic Injection Molding

Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials.

Material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the mold. Molds are made by a toolmaker from steel, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part.

Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels of cars.
