The Answer For Your Product

Plastic injection molding is a manufacturing process that produces parts by injecting molten plastic into a mold. This process is the answer for many company’s products. After all, plastic injection mold products are all around us. Lawn chairs, keyboards, legos…the list goes on! Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing of a variety of parts – both the smallest of components and the entire body panels of cars.

What's the process like?

Plastic material works by feeding plastic beads, which come in many types of plastic materials, into a heated barrel. During the manufacturing process the plastic is heated and becomes molten. It is mixed using a helical shaped screw and injected into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the shape of the mold design.

A sprue is the vertical passage or large diameter passage through which the molten plastic is put into a mold. Once the sprue cools and solidifies, it is removed from the part. A runner is a smaller diameter channel cut into the mold that allows the molten plastic to flow from the nozzle to the cavity, and is typically used when casting multiple parts at once.

Why do our customers choose our injection molding company?

When producing parts at high volumes, it’s important to get the design correct the first time, which can be a very involved process. First, Plastic Injection Molding Dayton will design and then prototype the part to specification. The prototype is often produced through 3D printing and using a material that may not end up being the final material used in mass production.

We will then design an injection mold tool for an initial production round. The development of an injection mold tool is required to generate some hundred injection molded prototypes. Our team will then refine the injection mold tool before mass-producing the final plastic molded part.
