How Injection Moulding Works
After a product gets designed by an industrial designer or engineer, a toolmaker will then proceed to make a mould from steel or aluminium which will be utilized for manufacturing.
Plastic pellets begin in a hopper where gravity forces them into a heating barrel. Inside, a combination of pressure and heating elements melt the plastic to the required temperature. The molten plastic is then forced into the mould cavity where it is then cooled and solidifies into the shape of the cavity. The mould opens and the part is ejected out of the mould. This process is then repeated. A variety of different size components can be manufactured using various materials including commodity plastics, engineering polymers and high-performance polymers.
Injection Moulding is the perfect solution when you need to replicate a particular plastic part, thousands or even millions of times.
