Injection Molding

Plastics are non-metallic compounds produced synthetically from a wide range of organic polymers like polyethylene, nylon, PVC, etc. Plastics are molded into different shapes, sizes and forms. The soft forms of plastics are hardened into different molds for manufacturing parts for domestic commercial uses. The process is called molding. Technically speaking, the process of manufacturing thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials is called plastic molding. In this process, organic polymers are sent through a hot barrel for melting and mixing into a mold. After that, it is left for a few hours to cool and solidify into different molds according to desired shapes and sizes.

There are different types of molding practiced in industrial process. Injection molding is highly popular among these. Besides, there are blow molding, extrusion molding, matrix molding, and compression molding followed for manufacturing various articles.Injection molding is popular for producing thin-walled plastic parts having extensive uses in plastic housings.

Injection molding is probably the highest used molding process for manufacturing various parts from plastic materials. As the name suggests, injection molding process uses the injection of a host of materials like confections, glasses, elastomers, and many thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers into the mold. Here, a heat-softened plastic material is forced momentarily from a cylinder to send into a relatively cool cavity (container) to give an article a desired shape. The injection molding process needs a molding machine, raw plastic materials, and a mold.
