What is injection moulding with plastic?
Injection moulding with plastic is a universal manufacturing technique that can produce many different types of parts or components. These can be produced economically in large volumes and at high speeds, often at rates that are expressed in terms of tens of thousands of parts per hour. Injection moulding is capable of producing parts from a variety of thermosetting and thermoplastic resins.
What can injection moulding be used for?
Injection moulding is used to make a variety of widely used products. We are able to injection mould parts in many different materials, ranging from large format housings and enclosures, to three-shot clear mouldings and lenses, plus internal technical and high-tolerance components.

Choosing to use injection moulding
When the time comes to designing a new product it’s always important to select the best manufacturing method. As evidenced by the proliferation in use of plastic parts, injection moulding has become the most popular method of producing precision parts in large volumes.
How does an injection moulding machine work?
Before we answer that question, let’s take a broader look at the industrial uses of plastic injection moulding. It has become an important tool in the manufacture of an extraordinarily wide range of components.
Choosing appropriate materials for injection moulding
You have decided that injection moulding is the way you intend to manufacture your components; but you now face a choice as to which polymer or combination of polymers is best suited to your needs.
