Frequently asked questions
What is the injection molding process?
During the process of plastic molding manufacturing, a molten plastic mixture is forced under high pressure into a custom-made mold so that the material takes the shape of the mold cavity. Once the part has been removed from the mold it is typically finished, but may require secondary operations.
What are the benefits of injection molding?
Injection molding has been around for nearly 150 years. This manufacturing process is ideal for production of large quantities of identical objects due to the following key advantages:
- High precision and accuracy
- High efficiency
- High flexibility
- Lower labor costs and minimal post-production work
What is plastic injection molding used for?
Plastic injection molding is used for the production of plastic parts in medium to high volume production levels. These parts come in an array of different colors, shapes, and sizes.
What products are injection molded?
Since injection molding represents the most common method of plastic parts manufacturing, the list of products can range from bottle caps to car parts. More complex parts are made out of a combination of two or more materials through a special process called overmolding.
What material is used in injection molding?
Special varieties of plastic are typically used in the injection mold manufacture, including: polycarbonate, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), nylon, etc.
As a reputable plastic injection molding company, we offer an array of materials that can be used in the production process. Learn more about various materials that we use at our materials page.
How are injection molds made?
Custom plastic injection molders employ computer-aided design (CAD) software or similar to produce custom molds machined with different disciplines out of solid metal and generally have two halves that will come together during the mold assembly process.
A mold is essentially a hollow metal block. Cavities within it are filled through gates and runners, and once filled with plastic, will produce the desired part. To learn more about our process and what it entails, feel free to contact us at your convenience.
How long do injection molds last?
The life of an injection mold is directly related to the type of mold, the type of material injected into it, and the number of parts produced.
A mold life expectancy can last between hundreds and millions of parts if properly constructed and maintained. The application (i.e. prototyping, production) usually dictates the mold’s endurance.
What is custom injection molding?
Custom injection molders design and manufacture custom molds and/or custom parts from a mold for the customer at small, medium, and large volumes. As the leading industry’s company, Wunder-Mold specializes in this process and is able to deliver a product design to your exact specifications and industry requirements.
Who invented injection molding?
American inventors and the first plastic injection molding manufacturers, brothers Isaiah and John Wesley Hyatt patented the very first injection molding machine in 1872. Despite its seemingly simple original design, this machine made the manufacturing process infinitely easier. It also served as the prototype for the sophisticated machines that we use nowadays, since the principle is much the same to this day.
