How to manufacture a injection Molding
Injection molding: it is an injection molding method. The injection molding method has the advantage of production speed, high efficiency, can realize automation operation, breed of design and color is much, can shape by Jane to numerous. It can from big to small size, and precise in dimension and product upgrading, can into complex shape parts. Injection molding is suitable for mass production with complex shape product and processing field.
Injection molding: Material granules for the part are fed via a hopper into a heated barrel, melted using heater bands and the frictional action of a reciprocating screw barrel. The plastic is then injection through a nozzle into a mould cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity. The mould tool is mounted on a moveable platen – when the part has solidified, the platen opens and the part is ejected out using ejector pins.
After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer. Moulds are made by a mould maker (or toolmaker) from metal. Usually either steel or aluminum and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Cost savings are highest when components have a minimum wall thickness. As long as that thickness is consistent with the part’s function and meets all mold filling considerations. As would be expected, parts cool faster with thin wall thicknesses. Which means that cycle times are shorter, resulting in more parts per hour. Further, thin parts weigh less, using less plastic per part. On average. The wall thickness of an injection molded part ranges from 2mm to 4mm (.080 inch to .160 inch). Thin wall injection molding can produce walls as thin as .05mm (.020 inch). Injection mould tooling is a very specialized profession requiring highly skilled engineers to create the injection mold tool.
Costing for this is very simple and fair
We’ll ask a small fee upfront for managing the project (between £150-500 depending on the complexity of the project). After the project has completed and we’ve provided a certain number of parts. We’ll refund the cost of the project management to you. Once produced, AV Plastics will store and maintain your mold tools, which remain your property. Each tool is used for the client’s exclusive requirements and we honor all IP rights. We operate an open-door policy so that you can access your tools at any time.
