Plastic Injection Molding for Flexible, Lightweight Parts
3Diligent's plastic injection molding services are often used for fabricating items ranging from plastic trinkets and toys to automotive body parts, cell phone cases, water bottles, and containers—plastic parts we use in everyday life. Its benefits are mass production of identical plastic parts, flexibility in shape and size, and light products are lightweight.
Plastic Injection Molding Process Overview
3Diligent's plastic injection molding service starts with the desired pelletized polymers. These are filtered into a barrel cavity where a reciprocating screw rotates and warms the pellets into a liquid, pushing them down the shaft to the injection entrance. The rotating rod quickly jams forward, inserting the liquid into the negative space of the workpiece. Air escapes the workpiece's cavity through microscopic holes, allowing the plastic filament to fully fill the cavity without exiting the workpiece.
This process can be completed through the use of aluminum or steel tools. 3Diligent offers both material options to suit a range of quantities.
