Plastic injection molding is very versatile method of making merchandises and parts. It’s one of the preferred methods for manufacturing components since it has multiple advantages over other methods of plastic molding. Not only is plastic injection molding easier and more trustworthy, it’s also exceptionally efficient. You must have no doubts about using this approach to fabricate components.
Injection Molded Plastic is resin that has been heated until molten and then induced into a pre-made mold or cavity in the form of object or the planned plastic product. When the melted plastic has cooled and hardened, the mold is removed to show a tough, plastic part in the form of the mold cavity. Products made from plastic injection molding, or custom injection molding, comprise a wide selection of everyday household items such as mop pails, plastic containers, screw driver handles and even video game cartridges.
Injection molding makes use of thermoplastics. Thermoplastics can be injected into the mold, then the excess may be remelted and used again. Consequently, you can be saved by injection molding on materials. Thermoplastics may also come in a wide variety of densities or strengths.
Plastic injection molding is a very innovative process which has created many useful products that we use every single day in our households. While the history of plastic injection molding is quite full of creativity and innovation, the future is filled with even greater possibility as more creative minds add new ways to improve plastic injection molding equipment and process.
This machine operates good with low-cost aluminum forms. Home CNC users can quickly grind their own forms. Or your mold can be made by any local machine shop, usually from a CAD file or just a simple sketch. We’ve even successfully injected parts using an epoxy mold with a support framework. The yellow fish in the photo above was reproduced using an epoxy mold.
Then the plastic is allowed to cool to its solid form within the mold. The clamping unit is then opened, which separates the two halves of the mold. An ejecting rod and plate eject the finished piece from the mold.
Because we live and operate in a global economy, it is not necessary to even work in the same vicinity as the mold maker, though life is easier if you do. There are many mold designers who freelance out of their own home office and are quite happy doing so. This is a viable alternative for the right person.
Would you like to help us, but $1,500 is more than you can pledge to get our new bench machine? You however help us to get this project funded with a modest $500 assurance. In return for your generous support, we’ll ship you one of our first Model 20A machines. That is our way of saying thanks for helping us get our new model produced!
