Injection Molding Types
Focusing on delivering the best quality injection type for your next project
Single-cavity, Multi-cavity, and Family Mold Options: The mold may feature either one cavity or multiple cavities, each of which can be used to create a single part. A family mold is a mold which combines different parts into the same mold base.
Gas-Assist Molding: A process where an inert gas is injected into the melted plastic pushing it further into the mold and resulting in hollow parts. This allows for complex and intricate designs to be made.
Insert Molding: Involves adding inserts, particularly metal, into an injection-molded part. Placing the insert within the mold cavity occurs before molten plastic injection. Consequently, on cooling, the insert becomes permanently combined with the plastic part.
Overmolding: A method of molding two or more different materials into one plastic part at one time. Commonly employed for molding a rubber-like plastic (such as TPE) onto another custom plastic component.
