Among the techniques for the transformation of plastic materials, the most widespread is custom plastic injection molding.

In this industrial production process, the plastic material is melted (plasticized) and injected at high pressure into a closed mold.

The Advantages of This Type of Processing Are:

  • high productivity
  • low production costs, given the high automation of processes
  • possibility of producing parts with complex geometries, very small, but also very large
  • Production of products with different colors and materials.

Like professional custom plastic injection molding companies, we also deal with this plastic processing technique: our factory boasts an efficient and complete fleet of presses equipped with manipulator robots with a clamping force of up to 1,800 tons , to print even large items.

We provide Greater custom plastic injection molding Technologies

In addition, in our production department of over 2,500 square meters we also carry out over- injection and molding with nitrogen, a gas that allows us to quickly create hollow objects internally.

Plastic extrusion: characteristics and potential

L ' extrusion is a plastics processing technique which allows the creation of a constant section products (called "extruded") such as pipes, rods, plates and various plastic sections type.

Its characteristic is to create objects of great versatility.

The extrusion technique is good to use with metallic materials (such as steel, aluminum, lead, or copper), plastics and in general with materials that have high plasticity. The types of plastics that can be used are diverse, including PVC, PE, PP and PA, as well as rubber.

How does extrusion work?

In this technique, the material, which must be pasty, comes to pass by compression through a shape ("matrix" or "die").

  1. the plastic material, in the form of small granules, is heated and then melted
  2. then the shape is given by compression through the matrix
  3. the plastic is finally subjected to a cooling-consolidation process.

What professional custom plastic injection molding offers?

Extrusion is certainly one of the most used techniques in our factories, to obtain products with constant thicknesses and with great versatility of application.

In particular, we can make sheets with thicknesses that can vary from a few millimeters to a few centimeters and rounds from a minimum diameter of 20mm to a maximum of 300mm.

The importance of finishing in plastic processing

The custom plastic injection molding process is not possible to complete until the finishing touches give with the finishing process.

The finishing of plastic articles is in fact fundamental for the quality of the articles, both in terms of performance and aesthetics.

Each year at our company we process more than 16,000 tons of plastic material. Let's find out together how the objects produced in our factory.

The assembly

The assembly of the articles takes place directly in our production department to offer a faster and more flexible service. Being made directly by us, we have direct control over every phase of the process, thus guaranteeing further precision and accuracy.

Hot welding

The heat sealing is the ideal technique for all the welds of the watertight plastic, even for large parts. It also allows you to make three-dimensional welds or internal walls, even thin or complex shapes. There are many advantages, such as high quality in terms of resistance and hermetic seal, and time savings.

Custom plastic injection molding Labeling

In addition, custom plastic injection molding allows you to optimally print high-resolution images.

Thanks to our automatic labeling line we can apply self-adhesive labels from reels with a maximum diameter of 280 mm.

Automated cutting

In addition to welding and labeling, we finally make high-precision cuts thanks to the aid of 6-axis anthropomorphic robots that simulate the movements of the human arm, reducing time and ensuring high precision.

The blow molding technique is a production process used to obtain hollow plastic products, such as bottles or flacons.

With this technique it is possible to obtain objects - even with thin thicknesses - for mass production, thus reducing costs.

How does custom plastic injection molding work?

The process is simple and intuitive:

  1. a plastic preformcomes inside a special mold
  2. compressed airblows into the mold from the outside , so that the preform adheres to the walls of the mold
  3. The object is then cooled and the mold opens, thus releasing the finished product.

What we offer for blow molding?

Blow molding is one of the plastic molding techniques that we most use for the processes requested by our customers.

What do you get?

  1. Completed project on time.
  2. Mold made in accordance with the statement of work.
  3. A quality end product.
  4. Nice pricing policy.

The cost of custom plastic injection molding depends on:

  • terms for development;
  • additional design features of the mold;
  • the need for subsequent manual processing;
  • special requirements for the project.

Injection molding of plastics: stages

  1. Design and 3D modeling of the mold is developed based on finished data or using a finished product.
  2. Manufacturing of a mold for plastic injection based on a 3D model.
  3. Test casting to check the correct geometry of the product and conformity of the mold to the TOR.
  4. Modification of the mold in case of identification of defects.
  5. Delivery of the project to the customer.

What is the main advantage of custom plastic injection molding?

Custom Plastic Injection Molding 2021

The main advantage of custom plastic injection molding is a very short production time. After creating a 3D model, and the use of materials with different properties, you can proceed easily. At the same time, the products do not have external differences and fully correspond to products.

Why custom plastic injection molding techniques is suitable?

Custom plastic injection molding is suitable for testing the technology. The surface texture depends on the prototype's 3D printing technology. Accordingly, if you want to get the quality after the injection molding machine, then you need to refine the prototype. In most cases, this is manual labor and to reduce it, we use stereolithography technology in 3D printing prototypes.

How many cycles does a 3D-printed mold withstand?

Below you can see that 3D printed forms can withstand a sufficient number of cycles to produce small batches of goods. This is quite inspiring information, because small-scale production has always been costly and troublesome. 

Traditional metal molds are expensive and depend on long-term supplies. And this significantly affects the cost of small-batch products. The use of the custom plastic injection molding for printing molds significantly reduces time and material costs.

You can order figurines of your favorite characters from precious metals, create objects of unusual shapes for the interior.

The use of 3D printing is used in many industries, but it is important for jewelry also because it eliminates the costs associated with the loss of precious metals. Any errors associated with gold are too costly.

Benefits of plastic injection molding parts

The use of plastic injection molding parts with 3D printing is a turning point in jewelry, as this approach allows you to optimize production with many advantages:

  1. Thanks to the use of 3D printing services, you can create real works of art, jewelry of a very complex shape, with an abundance of small details. The printing wax layer is up to 16 microns thick.
  2. 3D printing allows you to create prototypes of jewelry, molds for further equipment from wax. Also, this method is suitable for obtaining master models for investment casting.

Methods and stages of prototyping

Before 3D printing a prototype, it is good to create it in a special program on a computer. It is the use of a 3D printer that is the most popular and affordable way to create prototypes. 

 Another way to create a prototype is 3D milling. This method also allows you to create a prototype of any complexity, but it will take more time than using a 3D printer.

The main stages of plastic injection molding parts prototyping include:

  1. Model preparation. To do this, you will need to use special software that allows you to make a 3D model.
  2. Model creation. The main stage of prototyping.

Technology features of plastic injection molding parts

Prototyping and plastic injection molding parts 3D printing of objects is a procedure for creating an object based on special devices. Most often, a 3D printer is used for prototyping, which allows you to print a product quickly and inexpensively. This is due to the minimal use of consumables and the low cost of the raw materials used.

Printing is carried out from the bottom layer, gradually printing all layers. The result will be a volumetric prototype of the future product, on the basis of which it is possible to understand the main mistakes and make adjustments before the product is sent to mass production.

Sphere of using 3D modeling and prototyping

Prototyping of various objects is used in different fields of activity:

  1. Manufacturing a prototype of an object before releasing it into serial production. This will allow you to identify all problems, estimate the size, weight and other characteristics of the product and, if possible, correct the deficiencies even before the product is released into mass production.
  2. Printing layouts for demonstration to the customer or potential clients of future objects. This will make the advertising campaign more visual.
  3. Printing of test samples of products. If it sways individual parts, then they should go up to the main object. Testing a prototype product will allow you to identify any flaws and make adjustments.
  4. Production of objects in different colors and scales in order to choose the best option that will be used in serial production.

Plastic injection molding parts is an ideal solution for Prototyping

Plastic injection molding parts and prototyping is the ideal solution for quickly and cheaply creating a sample of products before launching them into mass production.

 Thanks to high precision and detailing, the finished prototype will be the most visual example of the product. And the shorter print times and affordable manufacturing costs make 3D printing ubiquitous.

The right tool in the shortest possible time: Injection molding of plastic products

diy plastic injection molding

Plastic products have become part of our daily life. It is impossible to imagine any production without them. To make a plastic part, the technology of diy plastic injection molding products is most often common. 

This technique allows you to produce serial products, as well as create individual copies. Furthermore, using special equipment, you can create miniature parts weighing 10-20 grams, as well as heavy workpieces.

Diy plastic injection molding Positive Factors

The technological process of creating products by injection molding of plastics consists of several basic operations. First, the molten material come into a mold installed on a special machine (injection molding machine), kept in it for a certain time, then it cools.

This casting is a cyclical method that affects productivity. This method is inferior to a continuous diy plastic injection molding process. The advantages of this technology include:

  • Any brand of plastic is recycled;
  • Manufactured products are always of the highest quality;
  • The ability to manufacture products of any, even very complex shape;
  • Creation of thin-walled parts;
  • No additional processing is needed;
  • Fully automated process

Disadvantages of injection molding technology

The main disadvantage of this technique is good to consider:

  • High cost of equipment
  • Complex service
  • Adjustment of the injection molding machine should be good to perform only by highly qualified adjusters.

To manufacture a new product, it is necessary to design a special mold, analyze future costs, and configure equipment according to individual parameters.

Diy plastic injection molding Production technology

To get a quality part, you must strictly follow the technological requirements:

  1. The plasticizing temperature is always 10 degrees higher than the plastic flow rate. If it exceeds 20 degrees, the viscosity of the polymer decreases, and the productivity begins to increase. However, this leads to a strong release of harmful substances, accelerated aging of the plastic.
  2. The temperature of the material must be higher than the temperature of the mold. Moreover, it must be well heated so that uniform filling occurs.
  3. The diy plastic injection moldingcycle time depends on several parameters. Thermal conductivity of plastic does not affect the performance of a given technological process, the characteristics of the heating cylinder. Similarly, the duration of the process depends on the dimensions of the mold, as well as the temperature of the melt.

Depending on the used closing mechanism, certain technological parameters must be observed:

  • closing forces;
  • generated pressure;
  • Total low tide area;

Then the possibility of manufacturing the desired product on the existing equipment (injection molding machine) is must. Waste generated after casting is subject to recycling. They can be good to use to create other details.

It would seem that injection molding is simple: melt the plastic, pour it into a mold, let it cool and pull out the casting. But plastic molding is constantly improving.

The world's largest injection molding machine

The world's largest injection molding machine designed in 2013 and built by Infiltrator Systems in Winchester, USA. The most powerful injection molding machine produces products for septic tanks. Similarly, the mold installed in the Infiltrator injection molding machine weighs 190,508 kilograms and forms a 110 kilogram polypropylene half of the tank.

Do you need diy plastic injection molding molds for reliable temperature control?

  1. Thermostat pump for sufficient flow rate of thermostatic fluid
  2. Moreover, Temperature difference between inlet and outlet not less than 4 ̊C
  3. Serviceability of the valve that limits the maximum pressure of the thermostatic fluid
  4. All listed conditions

When should the mold safety mode be activated?

  1. At the point of contact between the punch and the die
  2. Until the moment the punch touches the die
  3. Approximately 5 seconds before complete compression of the mold
  4. From the very beginning of the punch movement

Unrecyclable waste

  1. Products with mechanical damage, chips, cracks
  2. Incompletely molded products
  3. Furthermore, Products showing signs of overheating (thermal decomposition) over the entire surface
  4. Large or hollow sprues

The problem of the residual diy plastic injection molding melts bed?

  1. Ensure pressure transfer to the end of the material make-up
  2. Prevent backflow of the melt, flowing out of the mold
  3. In addition, Eliminate auger bouncing during injection
  4. Prevent the flow of melt from the nozzle after retraction of the injection unit

The task of the reactive pressure (backwater) of the material

  1. Displace the air drawn in together with the granulate towards the inlet
  2. Improve the mixing quality of the melt
  3. Moreover, dispense a constant amount of material
  4. All listed conditions

During the diy plastic injection molding casting process, an underfilling defect appeared on the manufactured product. Indicate how you will start to fix the problem?

  1. Add a dose of material. If the defect does not eliminate within two cycles, then add the injection speed
  2. Wait for 5 more cycles to complete. If the diy plastic injection moldingcasting process does not stabilize, then start adjusting the parameters
  3. Furthermore, pour raw materials out of the hopper to check that there is no caked lump in the feed zone, or that the secondary material is hanging. If there are no obstacles to loading raw materials, then we increase the temperature of the material cylinder
  4. Evaluate the change in injection time according to the readings of the monitor. If the injection time has increased, then immediately check the heating of the nozzle, the cleanliness of its bore

In the process of casting, the mold ceased to go out to the pressure. Your actions?

  1. Add the force of locking the mold and inspect the resulting product
  2. Similarly, Change the on / off positions of the mold protection mode, guided by the actual location of the punch
  3. Inspect the mold for the presence of a foreign object or breakage in it, and then decide to adjust the protection mode
  4. Moreover, Stop the injection molding machine, call the manager.

Auger revolutionized injection molding

The original diy plastic injection molding process remained unchanged until the end of World War II. But after the devastation, there was a massive demand for inexpensive plastic products.

diy plastic injection molding 2021

Rotating, the auger heats the plastic. The pellets pushed forward and pressed against the barrel. These shifts create friction and heat the plastic 60-90% of the heat required to melt. The rest of the heat comes by the cylinder tape heaters.

Plastic Injection Molds: The Challenges

Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturing

We are well aware of the problems faced by those involved in the production of molds for plastic. The processes required to arrive at the final solution can dramatically affect times and costs. For this problem you need a reliable plastic injection molding manufacturing.

Complexity

Generally, an injection mold consists of many complex cavities, inserts and cooling channels.

Relevant Costs and Times

Making an injection mold with traditional methods involves high tooling costs and long delivery times.

High wear

Mold tools must be able to withstand repeated impacts and exposure to high temperature polymers.

Similarly, improving the overall efficiency of the process is essential to preserve margins and meet the deadlines set by customers and in this, professional plastic injection molding manufacturing represents a reliable ally.

The advantages of additive manufacturing in plastic injection molding manufacturing

3D printed molds and inserts are much cheaper, easier and faster to make. Moreover, using a 3D printer in making injection molds makes the whole process more efficient.

Geometric freedom, reduced machining

Additive technology in plastic or metal allows obtaining complex geometries and cavities in a simpler way, avoiding complex manual processing.

Lower construction cost

The cost of making a mold is often influenced by the need to make changes to achieve the desired final result.  Similarly, the 3D printing makes the most economic process.

Resistant materials

Metal and polymers resistant to high temperatures and mechanical stress to make additive molds that resist wear in short cycles. In addition, start your journey to improve efficiency through 3D printing today.

  • Inserts for molds with shaped metal channels
  • Create more efficient technical inserts with metal 3D printing

Reduce the material used and build lightweight inserts while maintaining wear resistance with a Desktop Metal 3D printer. Furthermore, it improves part quality and reduces cycle time, lowering costs and increasing productivity.

Plastic injection molding manufacturing:  The advanced alternative to reduce time and costs!

Basically, PolyJet ™ technology is a 3D printing method that allows companies to build in-house injection molds, quickly and easily. Moreover, it uses liquid photopolymers that gets the shape of desired geometry. 

We can position prototypes using plastic injection molding manufacturing efficient way. Furthermore, it is good to create prototypes of the same material required for the finished product.
These precision prototypes provide realistic examples of finished products and can be used to collect actual performance data in real-world applications.

Shape you future plastic injection molding manufacturing Project

When you have a project in mind, be it large or small, creating a prototype is definitely an important step to take. Doing a test before going into production, in fact, minimizes the possibility of evaluation and calculation errors which, if not discovered in time, would lead to waste and costly rework.

In particular, the so-called rapid prototyping with 3D printing comes to the rescue in plastic molding projects. It is a set of industrial techniques useful for creating a prototype, in a relatively short time, starting from a three-dimensional mathematical definition of the object (CAD).

Why it is useful for companies to create prototypes?

Having a prototype of the object you want to produce allows you to carry out various preventive tests , so as to verify its ergonomics, functionality, assembly, aesthetics.

3D prototypes in plastic molding projects therefore have several advantages:

  • facilitateshape, size and assembly tests
  • they help in the development and correct definition of the product.

A realistic prototype also represents a very effective tool for marketing actions and can be useful to all the different company areas to have a more concrete vision of the project: from Research and Development, to the Technical Office, to Marketing, to Production.

In whole process you need professional plastic injection molding manufacturing.

The plastic injection molding manufacturing techniques

The techniques for creating prototypes are numerous using plastic injections molding manufacturing. The ones we usually use are those illustrated below: according to the different needs of our customers, we direct each project towards the most suitable technique.

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)

The technology called Multi Jet Fusion (acronym MJF) employs a printhead of the ink jet nozzles to selectively apply melting agents and detail on a nylon powder bed. The fusing agents give heat to the material by melting the particles to allow the creation of a solid layer. 

After each layer is created, the powder is redistributed on the bed and the process repeats until the piece is complete.

This process allows for a good surface finish, small details, reliable mechanical properties and short lead times.

Polyjet

Polyjet is a technology quite similar to MJF: also in this case molding heads are used and for this the final result is quite similar.

The main difference is in the removal of excess materials and support structures to arrive at the final geometry.

Plastic injection molding manufacturing technique gives precise and detailed results, but is not suitable for large quantities of parts.

SLS sintering

Using a laser radiation as in stereolithography, in the case of sintering the construction material, that is the nylon powder, is aggregated by a heat adduction that melts the particles stably, solidifying them.

This technology allows building parts with very complex geometries and with small details. The material is mechanically and heat resistant and can be further processed (eg painting and assembly of threaded inserts).

The Advantages of Additive Manufacturing in Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturing

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturing 2021

The construction process in Fused Deposition Modeling is based on the deposition of material by an extrusion head which, layer by layer, creates the object. Various materials can be used according to requirements.

The plastic injection molding manufacturing technology allows to create both aesthetic and functional prototypes, as well as to realize small productions thanks to the excellent properties of the materials that can be used.

For each project, a specific solution

Listening to the needs of our customers, we know how to best address each project, so as to create prototypes that reflect the physical-mechanical characteristics of the piece as much as possible , before moving on to mass production.

We can position prototypes using plastic injection molding manufacturing efficient way. Furthermore, it is good to create prototypes of the same material required for the finished product.
These precision prototypes provide realistic examples of finished products and can be used to collect actual performance data in real-world applications.

Shape you future plastic injection molding manufacturing Project

When you have a project in mind, be it large or small, creating a prototype is definitely an important step to take. Doing a test before going into production, in fact, minimizes the possibility of evaluation and calculation errors which, if not discovered in time, would lead to waste and costly rework.

In particular, the so-called rapid prototyping with 3D printing comes to the rescue in plastic molding projects. It is a set of industrial techniques useful for creating a prototype, in a relatively short time, starting from a three-dimensional mathematical definition of the object (CAD).

Why it is useful for companies to create prototypes?

Having a prototype of the object you want to produce allows you to carry out various preventive tests , so as to verify its ergonomics, functionality, assembly, aesthetics.

3D prototypes in plastic molding projects therefore have several advantages:

  • facilitateshape, size and assembly tests
  • they help in the development and correct definition of the product.

A realistic prototype also represents a very effective tool for marketing actions and can be useful to all the different company areas to have a more concrete vision of the project: from Research and Development, to the Technical Office, to Marketing, to Production.

In whole process you need professional plastic injection molding manufacturing.

The plastic injection molding manufacturing techniques

The techniques for creating prototypes are numerous using plastic injections molding manufacturing. The ones we usually use are those illustrated below: according to the different needs of our customers, we direct each project towards the most suitable technique.

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)

The technology called Multi Jet Fusion (acronym MJF) employs a printhead of the ink jet nozzles to selectively apply melting agents and detail on a nylon powder bed. The fusing agents give heat to the material by melting the particles to allow the creation of a solid layer. 

After each layer is created, the powder is redistributed on the bed and the process repeats until the piece is complete.

This process allows for a good surface finish, small details, reliable mechanical properties and short lead times.

Polyjet

Polyjet is a technology quite similar to MJF: also in this case molding heads are used and for this the final result is quite similar.

The main difference is in the removal of excess materials and support structures to arrive at the final geometry.

Plastic injection molding manufacturing technique gives precise and detailed results, but is not suitable for large quantities of parts.

SLS sintering

Using a laser radiation as in stereolithography, in the case of sintering the construction material, that is the nylon powder, is aggregated by a heat adduction that melts the particles stably, solidifying them.

This technology allows building parts with very complex geometries and with small details. The material is mechanically and heat resistant and can be further processed (eg painting and assembly of threaded inserts).

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

 

The construction process in Fused Deposition Modeling is based on the deposition of material by an extrusion head which, layer by layer, creates the object. Various materials can be used according to requirements.

The plastic injection molding manufacturing technology allows to create both aesthetic and functional prototypes, as well as to realize small productions thanks to the excellent properties of the materials that can be used.

For each project, a specific solution

Listening to the needs of our customers, we know how to best address each project, so as to create prototypes that reflect the physical-mechanical characteristics of the piece as much as possible , before moving on to mass production.

Your Comprehensive Guide on Plastic Corner Molding in China

Sharp edges no doubt look great. But, they can be huge trouble when molding plastic parts. They increase stress concentration which can lead to part failure. These sharp edges most commonly occur in non-obvious places such as a strengthening rib. For this reason, plastic corner molding in China tries to avoid it at all costs. Want to learn more about the design considerations for injection molding? This guide will tell you everything that you need to know. Keep reading!

plastic corner molding in China

Design Considerations for Plastic Corner Molding in China

There is a huge risk of error while designing corners for plastic corner molding in China. These issues can range from small surface faults to some grave problems that can impact the performance and the functionality of the product. These errors can occur due to many problems such as the process of the molding, the material used, and the tooling design.

We have listed some obvious mistakes that make occur while molding the edges of a plastic product below. Let’s take a look at them.

1.      Flow Lines

Flow lines look like a curvy pattern and are of a different color than the rest of the area. These lines occur due to difference in the cooling speed of the material when it flows in multiple directions in the mold. They most commonly appear on the narrower sections of the molded component.

Sometimes, they are even visible as ring-shaped bands on the surface of the product near the entry points. Although these lines do not impact the integrity of the product, they can be unpleasing to the eyes. Moreover, the consumer may even reject the product if they found flow lines on it.

2.      Warping

Warping is another common defect that occurs during plastic corner molding in China. It is a sort of deformation that appears when different parts of molded products are shrunk unevenly. When the shrinkage is uneven, it puts stress on different parts of the product. As a result, bending of the finished part takes place.

It occurs when the cooling process takes place too quickly. Furthermore, the excessive temperature can sometimes make the problem worse. Another reason for warping can be the mold design. When the walls of the design are of uneven thickness, this may also result in warping.

3.      Burn Marks

These marks look like rust-colored or black discoloration and may appear on the corner or the surface of the molded plastic part. Generally, these marks do not affect the integrity of the product unless the product burns so much that it is degraded.

So, why do these marks occur on plastic products? Well, the most common reason that they appear is because of the trapped air, overheating, and resin during the mold cavity. So, if you want to avoid these burn marks, you must lower the melting temperature and reduce the injection speed.

4.      Sink Marks

For those of you who don’t know, sink marks are depressions that appear on the surface of the product that is extremely flat and smooth. These marks appear in the plastic product when its inner molded part shrinks.

When the inner part shrinks, it pulls the material from the edges inward. So, what causes the depression in the surface that was smooth and flat before? The sink marks appear when the molded material takes a lot of time to cool down.

This results in shrinkage which then pulls the material from the edges inwards before it has the chance of cooling down. As a result, depressions in the form of sink marks occur.

5.      Air Pockets

Air pockets are air bubbles that are trapped in a finished product that is molded. Although it is considered a small defect by the quality control professionals, the large and numerous voids have the power of weakening the plastic product.

That’s because the air is below the surface of the product where the molded material should have been. Unsuitable molding pressure is one of the most common causes of air pockets or vacuum voids. The inadequate molding pressure forces the air that is trapped in the product from the mold cavity. As a result, air pockets may occur in the edges of the plastic molded product.

6.      Jetting

Jetting is a kind of a corner molding defect that appears when a jet of molten material is injected into the mold cavity. The major cause of jetting is all the extra injection pressure.

When the material solidifies before the cavity is filled, it results in jetting. It does not only look unpleasing to the eyes but it can result in the weakness of the product as well. Therefore, it should be avoided at all costs. You can reduce the injection pressure and increase the mold and material temperature to avoid jetting.

7.      Weld Lines

Weld lines are another common molding mistake that appears in the products of plastic corner molding in China. These lines appear on the surface of the edges where the molten material has converged after splitting into different directions in the mold.

This results in hair-like weld lines. These lines have the capability of weakening the strength of the product. Therefore, they must not be taken lightly and should be avoided at all costs.

So, how can you avoid weld lines in your plastic molded products? Well, the answer is extremely simple. All you need to do is increase the temperature of the material during molding and raise the speed and the pressure of the injection.

Final Words

Although sharp edges look pleasing to the eyes, they are not suitable for plastic corner molding. They can result in the weakening of the product. For this reason, they must be avoided at all costs.

We hope the above mentioned defects will help you identifying the molding defects when you see one so that you can avoid them later. For more information, reach out to us and we will be happy to assist you.

Contract manufacturing is an extremely popular option for a lot of manufacturers out there. This option is not only time-saving but incredibly cost-effective as well. Moreover, the product will also have a specialized partner that will do a portion of the work to launch a new product in the market. For this reason, the manufacturers choose to have a contract partner that will do all the work related to injection molding services. Since it is the preferred method of a lot of people, its demand will increase in the current year as well. More and more service providers will shift to the small-scale contract manufacturers that will take care of the manufacturing process for them.

3.      More Reshoring

The global pandemic that started in the year 2020 reflected the weakness in logistics all over the world. Not only this, but it also showed how many industries took advantage of trade options that were available to them outside the US. Since a lot of low-cost options for offshore companies were stopped due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the need for reshoring rose.

More and more companies are reshoring their manufacturing and tooling. That’s because the companies are realizing that their tooling will no longer be brought back to the US. This is why the year 2021 is reflecting a huge shift in recovery services. These services are playing a huge role in helping the companies retrieve, inspect, and get back their tools as soon as possible.

4.      More Focus on Sustainability

Sustainability is an extremely important subject that will continue to grow in the year 2021. That’s because it has a huge impact on the climate as well. The goal this year is to decrease wastage and cut emissions.

In addition to this, recycling will continue to trend in the year 2021 as it has been for the past few years. The recycling goal this year is to reach 100% recyclability.

Injection molding is a manufacturing process that is used by the plastic injection molding factory. The manufacturers use this process for the mass-production of plastic parts that are completely identical. Not only this, but the plastic parts that are produced are of good tolerance as well. The process involves melting polymer granules and then injecting the liquid into a mold.

plastic injection molding factory

The plastic injection molding factory manufactures a lot of products such as car parts, kitchen appliances, and electronic enclosures. But, several factors might affect the quality of the final design of the product. Want to know more about it? Keep reading then.

What is the Process of Plastic Injection Molding?

Plastic injection molding is the process of engineering plastic molds. That’s because plastic has resilient qualities. It allows the easy absorption of heat. Plastic injection molding is not only used in engineering applications but consumer products as well.

It is capable of producing identical plastic products that have high volumes. Moreover, the cost incurred by the plastic injection molding factory is extremely low as well. The molding machines are extremely easy to maintain and produce identical batches that quite impossible to differentiate.

How Do Injection Molding Machines Work?

Primarily, the injection molding machine is constructed with three main parts. These parts are known as the injection unit, the mold, and the clamping unit. The clamping unit is the most important part of the entire plastic injection molding process.

The main purpose of the injection unit in an injection molding machine is to melt the raw plastic and direct it into the mold. To carry out its assigned work, it consists of the reciprocating screw, hopper, and barrel.

The next step is to manufacture the mold. The mold is just like the negative part of the photograph. The texture of the mold is transferred to the injection molded part of the molding machine.

You will notice the clamping and the ejection system at the farthest side of the injection molding. The clamping system of the machine serves two main purposes. It not only keeps the parts of the mold shut tightly but also plays an important role in pushing the part out of the mold once the molding is complete.

What are the Applications of Plastic Injection Molding?

The resistance to heat and other chemicals makes plastic injection molding extremely popular. Due to its popularity, plastic injection molding is used in a lot of industries. Some common applications are mentioned below.

  • Electronic Appliances
  • Home Appliances
  • Automotive Parts
  • Construction Appliances
  • Engineering Equipment

What is the Reason behind the Popularity of Plastic Injection Molding?

Plastic injection molding is a common manufacturing process among plastic injection molding factories. That’s because of the benefits that this manufacturing process offers. Let’s take a look at some of its amazing advantages below.

  • Recyclable
  • Easier to glue
  • High tensile strength
  • Low cost
  • Strong impact resistance
  • Suitable for extreme temperature
  • Scratch resistance
  • Shock absorbance
  • Easier to color
  • Heat resistance

Some Common Designing Defects Incurred By a Plastic Injection Molding Injection Factory

Sometimes, a defect may occur in the design of the final product of the plastic molding. The plastic injection molding factory incurs these defects due to several reasons. Let’s check out some common designing defects below.

1.     Warping

When a certain part of the plastic product cools down faster than the other parts, it starts shrinking. The shrinking of that specific part can result in permanent bending of the object. That’s due to the internal stress that the product faces. This is what warping is called. The parts of the plastic product that have thick walls than other parts are more prone to warping.

2.     Sink Marks

When the inside of any part of the plastic product solidifies quicker than its surface, a small sink mark may appear in that specific part. This is why it is known as a sink mark. The parts of the plastic product that have a higher risk of sinking are the parts that have poorly designed ribs or have thick walls.

3.     Drag Marks

Another common defect in the design of a plastic product manufactured by a plastic injection molding factory is known as drag marks. It occurs due to the shrinking of the plastic. That’s because when the plastic sinks, it applies pressure on the mold.

As a result, the walls of those specific parts will slide during the ejection process. Not only this, but the walls will also scrape against the mold. This may result in drag marks. The parts that are more prone to drag marks are the parts that have vertical walls.

4.     Knit Lines

When two flows of a plastic product meet, you may notice it developing hair-like discolorations. These hair-like discolorations are extremely small. That’s called knit lines. The parts of the product that are more prone to knit lines are the ones that have holes in them. Knit lines not only ruin the aesthetics of the product, but it makes the plastic product weaker as well.

5.     Short Shots

Short shots may occur in plastic products that have extremely thin walls. Sometimes, the air that is trapped in the mold can block the flow of the plastic during the injection molding process. This might result in the product coming out as incomplete. For this reason, it is extremely important to design products that have a flawless design. When the design is good, it will improve the flow of the melted plastic.

Final Words

Plastic injection molding is extremely popular among the manufacturing industries these days. That’s due to the many benefits offered by this process. For this reason, many plastic injection molding factories are using it as well.

But, some common design defects may incur if you do not observe the process closely. This is why you must observe the entire process extremely carefully. For more information, contact us now!

What is ABS Plastic?

Also known as Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, ABS is a thermoplastic polymer. For those of you who do not know, thermoplastic is completely different from thermoset which refers to the heating process of the materials and how they respond.

For the purpose of ABS plastic molding, the ABS plastic needs to be melted first. The plastic melts at a temperature of 221 degrees Fahrenheit. The best part about ABS plastic is that you can cool it down and reheat the plastic again to its melting point. For this reason, ABS plastic is the most popular plastic used for injection molding.

How is ABS Manufactured?

ABS is manufactured using the process of Emulsion. The emulsion is the process in which the multiple products that do not combine in a single product are mixed. The most common example of an emulsified product is milk. ABS is also manufactured similarly. Another method used for the production of ABS is Continuous Mass Polymerization. But, it is not s common as an emulsion. That’s why manufacturers all over the world prefer the process of emulsion while developing ABS plastic.

What Makes ABS Plastic Turn Yellow?

Sometimes, you may notice that the ABS plastic is turning a bit yellow. You may wonder the reason behind that. Is that because the plastic is toxic or is there some other reason behind the plastic turning yellow? Well, the plastic turns yellow due to the oxidation process.

When ABS plastic reacts with oxygen, natural conditions such as heat and UV lights speed up the process. As a result, the plastic turns into a shade of yellow. So, if you want to turn the color of the plastic back to its original form, you should use hydrogen peroxide on it. But, you must not do it yourself at home. Otherwise, it will damage the material more.
