Injemo Engineering are specialist in custom plastic injection moulding products. Our plastic injection mouldings can be used to produce any custom plastic product.
Plastic injection moulding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. Material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed and forced into a mould cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity.
After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, moulds are made by a mould maker (or tool maker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminium and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection moulding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels of cars.
Advantages of injection moulding
Some advantages of injection moulding are high production rates, repeatable high tolerances, the ability to use a wide range of materials, low labour costs, minimal scrap losses, and a little need to finish parts after moulding.
Plastic injection moulding are used to create many things such as wire spools, packaging, bottle caps, automotive parts, pocket combs, some musical instruments (and parts of them), one piece chairs and small tables, storage containers, mechanical parts (including gears) and most other plastic products available today.
Plastic Injection moulding is the most common method of part manufacturing. It is ideal for producing high volumes of the same object.
