Applications for Injection Molding

Many businesses look to trusted companies like Decatur Mold to handle their injection molding services, which is the most common method of parts manufacturing. The reason this process is so popular is because of the many advantages it provides, including the ability to use a large variety of materials, high production rates, a long tool lifespan, minimal tool maintenance, and excellent repeatability, to name a few.

The injection molding process is relatively simple as well. Basically, molten plastic is forced into a mold (such as a die or a tool) that is shaped like the desired finished product. The plastic cools in the mold and takes the shape of the product before it is ejected. The part is completed after minimal secondary processing. Some common applications of injection molding include:

  • Wire Spools
  • Bottle Caps
  • Packaging
  • Automotive Dashboards
  • Pocket Combs
  • And Many More

There are a number of fields that benefit from injection molding services, including the consumer and appliance industries, the automotive industry, the military and defense industry, and the medical industry. If your company can benefit from injection molding services, contact Decatur Mold today. We have been performing this process for more than 50 years, and we look forward to working with you.
