Basics of the Injection Molding Process
At its core, the injection molding process is relatively simple, which is why it was initially used to make such projects as buttons and combs. Molten plastic is forced through a mold shaped like the desired finished product. As the plastic cools in the mold, it takes the desired shape and is then ejected. The part is then completed after minimal secondary processing.
The capabilities of this process, however, have evolved considerably over the years. Now injection molding can meet virtually any specification, including extremely complex geometries that would be costly, difficult, or impossible to produce by other means.
Injection molding is a versatile manufacturing process with a long, rich history. From its origins in 1872 to today’s high-production rates, long tool lifespans, minimal tool maintenance, and excellent repeatability, this process has proven itself time after time.
