Mass-Produced Excellence by Omaha Injection Molding.
Injection molding is key in mass-producing thousands of identical plastic parts.
Plastic molding is a process completed by a plastic mold manufacturer that produces parts by injecting molten plastic into a mold.
This process is the answer for many companies’ products. After all, plastic molding products are all around us. Lawn chairs, keyboards, legos…the list goes on! Plastic molding is widely used for manufacturing of a variety of parts – both the smallest of components and the entire body panels of cars.
Plastic molding 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.
Why do our customers choose plastic molding?
The price per unit during injection molding manufacturing is extremely low and continues to decrease as more parts are produced. Traditional manufacturing processes like CNC machining cut away parts of an existing plastic block or sheet, resulting in waste and scraps. Injection molding, on the other hand, creates nearly no waste with the only scraps being the sprue, the runners and the occasional molten plastic overflow from the part’s cavity.
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.
Our customers choose our manufacturers because our injection molding process is very repeatable and the first part produced will be identical to the last part produced. In choosing our plastic part manufacturer, you can expect quality and consistency no matter the quantity of parts created.
Plastic molding is essential for mass manufacturing plastic products. The manufacturing process is regularly used when the same part is being created thousands of times in large quantities.
