Do you ever wonder where all those molded products come from or how they were made? Injection molding is a process that is used to make many products in large volume. If a manufacturer wants one thousand parts, all exactly the same for some application, they will most likely be made with the injection molding process by companies such as Yin-Shan Engineering. These companies can design, build and manufacture parts and products with the injection molding process and machinery. Personalized injection moulding and product design work make many modern machines and products possible.
What is injection molding?
Injection molding involves a process of producing specially designed parts by injecting material into a mold. First the part is designed and a model built. The model is used to manufacture a special mold of either steel or aluminum, machined to exact form and features of the model. This mold is then attached to an injection molding machine. The material to be used for the part is injected into a heated barrel, mixed and forced into the special mold cavity. When the material hardens it will have the configuration of the mold cavity. This part is extracted from the mold and is ready to finish and use.
The injection molding process can use many materials including metals, glass, confections, elastomers, thermoplastic, and thermosetting polymers. These materials can be used for molding and silk screen applications, swimming pool modular grating, body panels for trucks and normal grating cars, tiny parts for toys and machines, equipment casings, card readers, air filters, and more items. Once a mould is made, it can be used over and over to produce identical pieces.
The parts to be manufactured by this process must be very carefully designed and made to work with the molding process so the finished product has all the details and features the designer intended. When thousands of one thing are being made, there is no room for error. The properties of the molding machine and process and the material that will make up the part must be considered. The better the product design and engineering, the better the final product.
Why Use An Injection Molding Engineering And Design Firm?
There are advantages to using an engineering company that is capable of designing the product to the customer's exact specifications, building the model, making the mold, and manufacturing the product by the injection mold process. Reliable one stop engineering and manufacturing solutions can save companies time and money. A good engineering and manufacturing company will have an efficient production process, meet design and delivery deadlines, and have good after-sales support.
