Co-injection molding(or sandwich molding) a process that creates a skin and core material arrangement in a molded part. The skin material is injected first into the mold cavity, and is immediately followed by a core material. As the skin material flows into the cavity, the material next to the cavity walls freezes and material flows down a center channel. When the core material enters it displaces the skin material in the center of the channel by pushing the skin ahead. As it flows ahead it continues to freeze on the walls producing the skin layer

Machine Based Co-Injection molding

The Co-Injection process requires two injection/processing units. The units generally inject material through a manifold located at the end of the injection barrels. The manifold ports the two melt streams into a centrally located nozzle. The machine controls the injection units to achieve a skin-core-skin flow sequence through the manifold into the mold. Last skin flow is needed to clear the short nozzle section of core material and to seal the gate area with skin. This arrangement can be used on any single or multiple cavity, conventional cold runner mold.

Mold Based Co-Injection

This same process can be achieved on a hot runner mold by utilizing a hot runner system from hot runner Corporation. This system, sometimes identified as “Mold Based Co-Injection”, still utilizes two injection units. The two melt streams are directed into the mod via separate channels. These two channels remain separate until they reach the gate area of the part. At this point they flow through a nozzle arrangement similar to the normal co-injection manifold.

Plastic Injection molding is the principal method of forming thermoplastic materials. Modifications of the plastic injection molding process are sometimes used for thermosetting plastics.

In Plastic injection molding, plastic material is put into a hopper which feeds into a heated injection unit. A reciprocating screw pushes the plastic through this long heating chamber, where the material is softened to a fluid state. At the end of this chamber there is a nozzle which abuts firmly against an opening into a cool, closed mold. The fluid plastic is forced at high pressure through this nozzle into the cold plastic mold. A system of clamps hold the mold halves shut. As soon as the plastic cools to a solid state, the mold opens and the finished plastic is ejected from the press.

The problem with plastic injection molding of thermosetting materials is that, under heat, these plastics will first soften, then harden to an infusible state. Thus it is essential that no softened thermosetting material in the heating chamber be allowed to remain there long enough to set. Jet molding, offset molding and molding using a screw-type machine overcome this problem by liquefying the thermosetting plastic material just as it goes through the injection nozzle into the plastic mold, but not before.

Blow Molding
Blow molding is a method of forming hollow articles out of thermoplastic materials.

plastic molding company, injection molding machines from 60 Ton to 2000 Ton

Blow molding is a process of forming a molten tube of thermoplastic material, then with the use of compressed air, blowing up the tube to conform to the interior of a chilled blow mold. The most common methods are extrusion, injection, and injection-stretch blow molding.

The continuous-extrusion method uses a continuously running extruder with a tuned die head that forms the molten plastic tube. The tube is then pinched between two mold halves. A blow pin or needle is inserted into the tube and compressed air is used to blow up the part to conform to the chilled mold interior. Accumulator-extrusion is similar, however, the molten plastic material is accumulated in a chamber prior to being forced through a die to form the tube.

Injection blow molding is a process of injection molding a preform (similar to a test tube), then taking the tempered preform to a blow mold to be filled with compressed air to conform to the interior of the blow mold. Injection-stretch blow molding can be a single-stage process similar to standard injection blow molding, by adding the element of stretch prior to blow forming. Also, a two-step process is possible, where a preform is made in an injection molding machine, then taken to a reheat-stretch blow molding machine for preform reheating and final blow forming in a blow mold.

Thermoforming
Thermoforming of plastic sheet has developed rapidly in recent years. This process consists of heating thermoplastic sheet to a formable plastic state and then applying air and/or mechanical assists to shape it to the contours of a mold.

Air pressure may range from almost zero to several hundred psi. Up to approximately 14 psi (atmospheric pressure), the pressure is obtained by evacuating the space between the sheet and the mold in order to utilize this atmospheric pressure. This range, known as vacuum forming, will give satisfactory reproduction of the mold configuration in the majority of forming applications.

Themoset Transfer Molding

Themoset Transfer molding is most generally used for thermosetting plastics. This method is like compression molding in that the plastic is cured into an infusible state in a mold under heat and pressure. It differs from compression molding in that the plastic is heated to a point of plasticity before it reaches the mold and is forced into a closed mold by means of a hydraulically operated plunger.

Themoset Transfer molding was developed to facilitate the molding of intricate products with small deep holes or numerous metal inserts. The dry mold compound used in compression molding sometimes disturbs the position of the metal inserts and the pins which form the holes. The liquefied plastic material in transfer molding flows around these metal parts without causing them to shift position.

Reaction Injection Molding

Reaction injection molding (RIM) is a relatively new processing technique that has rapidly taken its place alongside more traditional methods. Unlike liquid casting, the two liquid components, polyols and isocyanates, are mixed in a chamber at relatively low temperatures (75° – 140° F) before being injected into a closed mold. An exothermic reaction occurs, and consequently RIM requires far less energy usage than any other injection molding system.

The three major types of polyurethane RIM systems are rigid structural foam, low-modulus elastomers, and high-modulus elastomers.

Reinforced RIM (R-RIM) consists of the addition of such materials as chopped or milled glass fiber to the polyurethane to enhance stiffness and to increase modulus, thus expanding the range of applications.

Compression Molding

Compression molding is the most common method of forming thermosetting materials. It is not generally used for thermoplastics.

Compression molding is simply the squeezing of a material into a desired shape by application of heat and pressure to the material in a mold.

Plastic molding powder, mixed with such materials or fillers as woodflour and cellulose to strengthen or give other added qualities to the finished product, is put directly into the open mold cavity. The mold is then closed, pressing down on the plastic and causing it to flow throughout the mold. It is while the heated mold is closed that the thermosetting material undergoes a chemical change which permanently hardens it into the shape of the mold. The three compression molding factors — pressure, temperature and time the mold is closed — vary with the design of the finished article and the material being molded.

Extrusion

Extrusion molding is the method employed to form thermoplastic materials into continuous sheeting, film, tubes, rods, profile shapes, and filaments, and to coat wire, cable and cord.

In extrusion, dry plastic material is first loaded into a hopper, then fed into a long heating chamber through which it is moved by the action of a continuously revolving screw. At the end of the heating chamber the molten plastic is forced out through a small opening or die with the shape desired in the finished product. As the plastic extrusion comes from the die, it is fed onto a conveyor belt where it is cooled, most frequently by blowers or by immersion in water.

In the case of wire and cable coating, the thermoplastic is extruded around a continuing length of wire or cable which, like the plastic, passes through the extruder die. The coated wire is wound on drums after cooling.

In the production of wide film or sheeting, the plastic is extruded in the form of a tube. This tube may be split as it comes from the die and then stretched and thinned to the dimensions desired in the finished film.

In a different process, the extruded tubing is inflated as it comes from the die, the degree of inflation of the tubing regulating the thickness of the final film.

What is Injection molding cleanroom

Injection molding cleanroom refers to a controlled environment specifically designed and maintained for the manufacturing of plastic components using injection molding processes. These cleanrooms are essential for industries that require high levels of cleanliness and precision, such as medical, pharmaceutical, electronics, and aerospace sectors.

Key characteristics and features of an injection molding cleanroom include:

  1. Cleanroom Classification: Medical Injection molding cleanroom adhere to specific cleanliness classifications based on international standards, such as ISO 14644-1. These classifications determine the allowable limits of airborne particles per cubic meter of air, ensuring a controlled environment with low levels of contamination. Cleanrooms are typically classified as ISO Class 5 or higher for injection molding applications.
  2. Environmental Control: Injection molding cleanrooms incorporate advanced environmental control systems to maintain the desired cleanliness levels. These systems typically include high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, air pressure differentials, and temperature and humidity control to minimize the presence of airborne particles and ensure optimal manufacturing conditions.
  3. Gowning and Personnel Hygiene: Strict gowning procedures and personnel hygiene practices are enforced within injection molding cleanrooms to prevent contamination. Cleanroom personnel are required to wear specialized garments, including cleanroom suits, gloves, masks, hairnets, and shoe covers. Handwashing and sanitization protocols are rigorously followed to maintain cleanliness.
  4. Material Handling and Preparation: Raw materials used in injection molding are handled and prepared within the cleanroom environment to prevent contamination. Controlled storage and transportation of materials are implemented, and specific protocols are followed to maintain material cleanliness. Material drying, conditioning, and mixing may also be conducted in dedicated cleanroom areas.
  5. Cleanroom Equipment and Machinery: Injection molding machines used in cleanroom environments are designed and maintained to meet the cleanliness requirements. These machines may feature additional enclosures, laminar flow hoods, or barrier systems to minimize the risk of particle generation during the molding process. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the equipment are essential to uphold cleanliness standards.
  6. Mold and Tooling Preparation: Molds and tooling used in injection molding are prepared and maintained within the cleanroom environment. Proper cleaning procedures, including solvent cleaning, ultrasonic cleaning, or specialized cleaning agents, are employed to eliminate contaminants. Mold storage and handling are carefully managed to prevent particle accumulation.
  7. Process Control and Quality Assurance: Injection molding cleanrooms implement stringent process control measures to ensure consistent quality and minimize defects. Critical process parameters, such as temperature, pressure, injection speed, and cooling time, are closely monitored and controlled. In-process inspections, dimensional measurements, and quality checks are performed to verify product quality and compliance with specifications.

Injection molding cleanrooms are crucial for industries that demand high-quality, precision-molded components. By providing a controlled and clean environment, these cleanrooms minimize contamination risks, ensure product integrity, and meet stringent regulatory and industry standards. The combination of environmental control, personnel hygiene, material handling, and process control measures in an injection molding cleanroom contributes to the production of reliable and high-quality plastic components.

Sometimes a Plastic mold company is looking for good niche products that related their business and they could earn more profits. Such was the case for SINCERE TECH a well-known plastic mold manufacturer that is now inverted molding shop in a 5,000 -sq Class 10,000 injection molding cleanroom which is especially for medical injection molding service.

Located in Dong Guan China, a small town in the Dong Guan City of China near the Shenzhen airport, SINCERE TECH has a reputation for complicated, high-precision molds, medical molding, automobile mold and a particular specialty in multi-component molds. After 2000 China has become mold manufacturing country on the world and lots of tool-making companies started their mold business, in 2005 the SINCERE TECH started plastic mold manufacturing business to make export molds, primarily of shorter runs for customers of its tool-making business.

Staying with what worked, when SINCERE TECH was set up as a plastic molding facility by a wall divided from the plastic mold making shop, it was designed around what the mold customers were doing. That way it could handle customers’ short lead time, benefits for mold maintaining, and so on. Since molds were mostly made for technical and multi-material or colored parts, the molding company configured with high-precision injection molding machines and multi-component technologies. Molding presses range from 60 to 2000 tons and include two-shot injection molding machines. you can go to our double injection molding parts page.

Medical Plastic Injection Molding Products Needs Injection Molding Cleanroom 

Several of our customers were in medical equipment which needs medical molding parts, automotive industry, health care industry and pharmaceutical manufacturers. to provide a custom solution for all of our customers, ST decided to set up an injection molding cleanroom manufacturing (for medical injection molding service) operation at a Class 10,000 level with turbulent airflow. Plastic molding parts made include dialysis machine components, medical machinery components, closures for PE infusion bottles, and medical plastic caps and some of other medical injection molding parts

The ways of using injection molding machines in a cleanroom environment are too numerous to count. There are hoods over individual machines, machines completely in the cleanroom environment, and machines partially in the molding cleanroom itself.

ST decided to put only the clamp end of the machine in the clean room injection molding, “We considered the particular characteristics of the machines in all our planning.” ST chose some of the high precision Series injection machines, including 65-, 80-, and 110-ton machines to cover its product range, this machines seems working perfectly as we thought at the beginning,

Full-service Plastic mold making, normally molding and Cleanroom

ST did not set up the injection molding cleanroom to simply molded parts. That would not have fit with the level of service expected by the medical plastic molding requirement of customers. Such customers generally specify medical degree for all of the molding equipment, packing, assembly, and shipments, to complete this task, ST operates an assembly room within the Class 10,000 cleanroom so that the finished product leaves in hermetically sealed packages ready for shipping.

For normal requirements, we have a range of machines from 80 tons to 2000 tons to produce a wide range of products for our customers.

Over Molds

China has become a major destination for Plastic Injection Mold and molding parts service. Lower prices are the primary incentives for many foreign buyers. The majority of foreign buyers find challenges sourcing plastic injection molding from China. The major strains are on how to buy, how to evaluate quality, or how to identify a reliable source.

Many things go wrong in case of compromise in the purchase process. For example, delayed delivery, frauds, low quality, weakness of communication (both on language and technical), and other problems may be encountered. To avoid such frustrations, the following is a process of how a buyer would purchase plastic injection molding from China. Hope this could help you find your best suitable supplier

Identify a Reliable Plastic Molding Manufacturer

Currently, there are many mold manufacturing companies in China. You need to determine which supplier is reliable. Some of the factors to consider include, mold price, quality, quantity, accessory standard, communication, lead times, and the mold design, among other factors.
Using the World Wide Web, you can easily find a wide range of plastic molding suppliers from the internet, sourcing agents, and trade shows, etc.

It is important to contact several suppliers before making a decision on a suitable supplier.
Buy Plastic Injection molding from China

Evaluate the Various Mold/Molding Manufacturers

Conducting market research on the various plastic molding manufacturers helps to find a suitable fit for the business. So how can one evaluate the Chinese mold makers to identify a reliable source?
Sending inquiries helps the evaluation process. You should focus on asking questions that evaluate the core competence of the plastic molding companies.
A good supplier is one that shows interest in your projects, has effective communication, knowledgeable, detail-minded, and honest. The evaluation should target to identify the salient attributes of the supplier, for example, what is advantages do they have, is it suitable for your project? Have they done any similar projects like yours? All of the information will help to make your project smoothly or not.

Information Verification

Not all manufacturers are who they say they are. The customer should be able to verify the plastic molding manufacturer. Some of the information that can be verified include:

  • Type of mold parting line
  • The type of ejection modes, whether pins are used and the particular locations,
  • Surface requirement on the visible surface
  • The location and type of gates

Such information helps to verify the mold designs and product appearance. the most important thing is basing on this discussing with each other you will know their communication and technology ability. A supplier that verifies the information and offers samples is reliable.

Analysis of Production Issues that may Arise

A good plastic molding supplier should communicate the issues in advance and concerns that may arise in the production process, and actions are taken to address the issue. A good injection mold company should analyze the current design and offer rational recommendations, we call this DFM report.
Some of the important questions that help identify some of the issues include;

  • Have you produced similar molds/products before?
  • What were the challenges encountered?
  • Can you send your quality control inspection report?
  • How do you address the issues that arise?
  • Do you offer compensation for compromises?

With all the information, you should already have identified which Chinese molding company to source from.

Firm/Supplier Site Visit 

Depending on the quantity of supply sourced, visiting the supplier may be important. For large quantities of plastic molding service, traveling to China should be a basic step. The objective is to analyze samples and evaluate the reliability of the supplier.

Go to their plastic molding company on site to communicate with them face to face, then you will know how the technical skill, English ability, etc.  But mostly not always have time to check their mold factory, so we suggest you may ask for a skype video shows if you have no time to visit them.

At SINCERE TECH will take Skype video meeting to show you around our plastic mold and molding factory if you have no time to visit our factory, our sales and project manager speak good English and have the professional technical skill, you will know this during the video shows. if you are interested in our service, you are welcome to contact us.

Maker A Contract

Importing products from China and Asian nations can be risky and complicated. Contracts are antidotes against the common mistakes and issues that may arise. It is essential for buyers to get into a contract for the following reasons;

  • To maintain clarity on product specifications and avoid misunderstandings. The specifications of the product can be easily lost in Skype or mail communication.
  • Compensation terms help suppliers to think twice about compromise.
  • Contracts help to communicate on how severe your business is
  • It helps to avoid delays

The first time you work with a China plastic injection molding company (same to work with your local supplier), you should always make agreements on contracts to avoid scams and fraud. Suppliers who default the negotiations should be responsible for making refunds and necessary compensations.

7.Payment and Delivery

Based on the set agreement, the amount can be paid by one time or two times ( maybe more times). The payment method depends on the agreed strategy. Some companies make payments via Paypal, Skrill, Payoneer, Western Union, Cheque, or other policies. Our standard payment term is T/T wire transfer. If the small amount. PayPal is still available,  this is method is normally working for all of the companies in China, especially for custom plastic molding manufacturing service.

Concluding Thoughts 

Buying plastic molding from China can be challenging. However, if you follow the seven steps, the process is easy and with no compromise. when you find your reliable partner from China, then your business will be increased rapidly, this is verified by lots of companies like Apple, and other car companies (over 80% of car companies buy their auto car molds from China), etc.

Doing online businesses have fraudulent operations. You should be cautious on the approach of doing business online to avoid frustrations, lots of company doing online business with China and successful to the business, also some of the customers had issues when doing business with Chinese manufacturers, or even have issues with your local supplier as well, do you agree?  The above steps could help you avoid this issue and the success of your business.

What is Plastic Packaging Containers

Plastic packaging containers are containers that are used to hold something; whether that be food, clothing, or anything else; that are made out of plastic. Many companies use different plastic packaging containers, such as pharmaceutical companies. the food industry, the healthcare industry, the pet industry, and many others.Custom Plastic Packaging Containers

Plastic packaging containers can be found at most stores you shop at, but what about custom plastic packaging containers? Where would you find an odd-shaped container that you need for a specific project? What if you need 1000 of that same odd-shaped container for your business? Do you want your company logo on those containers? There are many aspects to look at when choosing containers, depending on what you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for clear plastic packaging containers for food, you wouldn’t want containers that contain BPA. go to custom plastic food storage containers pageto know more information.

Step to order your own Plastic Packaging Containers

The first step in ordering your custom plastic packaging containers would be to determine the size and shape of the container that you need. If you need a smaller container, or a basic plastic mold then you are looking at spending less money. Whereas if you are wanting a plastic packaging container in an odd shape, you will be spending a little more.
Next, you would determine what quality of plastic you need the containers to be. You would need to look at different aspects for this, such as what products are going in the containers, how the custom plastic packaging containers are going to be stored, and what climate the containers will be stored in. This is an important step because you don’t want to order a container that is not going to fit your specific needs.
After you have determined the size, shape, and quality of your plastic packaging container, you will need to decide what you want the product to look like. This means deciding whether you want custom colors or extra design. Then, you will need to determine how many containers you need. If you need the containers for a wedding, for example, you wouldn’t need as many as you would for a business that needs containers for a product. all of those process we called part design and delvelopment.
In addition, you would determine how quickly you need the product. If you need a custom product as soon as possible, you would want to look at companies with in house engineers, that are located in your country. However, if you can wait some time, you could be saving money if you went for a larger manufacture overseas, like finf a plastic molding company to handle your custom plastic mold and massive products production.
Furthermore, you will need to decide whether you need a label on the containers. This is a pretty simple step, but if it’s missed, you could end up with thousands of containers that were ordered incorrectly.
Finally, you would choose the business that you want to order from, let them know your vision, and wait for your arrival. Choosing a business can be a difficult decision, and can be time consuming because you don’t want to make a mistake when mass producing something important. As long as you follow these steps, you are headed in the right direction to getting the custom plastic packaging containers you need.

Plastic Injection Molding Cost Guiding Tips

There are meanly four parts of cost: Plastic Material Cost, Molding Production Cost, Plastic Mold Cost, Part Color Cost, let us explain those four mean costs one by one.

Plastic Material Cost

First, the plastic raw material cost will effect the plastic injection molding cost, it is determined by the weight of material that is required and the unit price of that material. The weight of the material is a result of the part volume and material density; however, the part’s maximum wall thickness can also play a role. The weight of material that is required includes the material that fills the channels of the mold.

The size of those channels, and hence the amount of raw material, is largely determined by the thickness of the part, the selection of the material affects the unit part price as well, a different type of plastic material has a different price, for example, PP material is a totally different price than ABS material, so the material cost for plastic part includes two parts, one is the weight of the material, one is the type of material for the plastic part.

Second, the injection molding machine process cost will effect the plastic injection molding cost, it is primarily calculated from the hourly rate and the cycle time. The hourly rate is proportional to the size of the injection moulding machine being used, so it is important to understand how the part design affects machine selection. Injection molding machines are typically referred to by the tonnage of the clamping force they provide.

The required clamping force is determined by the projected area of the part and the pressure with which the material is injected. Therefore, a larger part will require a larger clamping force, and hence a more expensive machine. Also, certain materials that require high injection pressures may require higher tonnage machines. The size of the part must also comply with other machine specifications, such as clamp stroke, platen size, and shot capacity.

Injection Molding Processing cost

The cycle time will effect plastic injection molding cost, cycle time can be broken down into the injection time, cooling time, and resetting time. By reducing any of these times, the production cost will be lowered. The injection time can be decreased by reducing the maximum wall thickness of the part and the part volume. The cooling time is also decreased for lower wall thicknesses, as they require less time to cool all the way through.

Several thermodynamic properties of the material also affect the cooling time. Lastly, the resetting time depends on the machine size and the part size. A larger plastic part will require larger motions from the machine to open, close, and eject the part, and a larger machine requires more time to perform these operations.

Plastic Mold Cost

Third, the plastic mold cost has two main components – the mold base and the machining of the cavities. The cost of the mold base is primarily controlled by the size of the part’s envelope and design feature. A larger plastic part requires a larger mold, more expensive mold base. the complex part design requires complex molds, that will effect the mold cost.

The cost of machining the cavities is affected by nearly every aspect of the part’s geometry, complex mold cavity requirement lots of CNC machining cost and time, that will increase the plastic injection mold cost, on the other hand will increase the plastic injection molding cost as well.

The primary cost driver is the size of the cavity that must be machined, measured by the projected area of the cavity (equal to the projected area of the part and projected holes) and its depth. Any other elements that will require additional machining time will add to the cost, including the feature count, parting surface, side-cores, lifters, unscrewing devices, tolerance, and surface roughness.

The quantity of parts also impacts the plastic injection mold cost. A larger production quantity will require a higher class mold that will not wear as quickly. The stronger mold material results in a higher mold base cost and more machining time.

One final consideration is the number of side-action directions, which can indirectly affect the plastic injection molding cost. The additional cost for side-cores is determined by how many are used. However, the number of directions can restrict the number of cavities that can be included in the mold. For example, the mold for a part that requires three side-action directions can only contain two cavities. There is no direct cost added, but it is possible that the use of more cavities could provide further savings.

Injection molding Color Cost

Forth, the plastic molding color is also cost effect to the plastic injection molding cost, normally does not have too much effect, but this is still depending on which parts color do you require if you need white color for your plastic parts, then the cost will be 10% more than another color, if you require clear color (transparent molding parts) molding parts, then the cost will be 25-40% high than normal color molded parts.

When you need white color injection molding parts, then the molding shop needs to clean the barrel very well, and not allow any other color max in this injection unit and material, this will take time and waste some material, and the other thing is the waste rate will be increased, that is the reason the white color plastic parts is little high than other colors.

When you are looking for transparent injection molding parts like PC injection molding, PMMA molding, or PS molding parts, the molding shop needs use special injection unit to produce this type of molding parts, they need to clear the unit barrel very well and use some good quality injection molding machine to produce the clear plastic molding parts, because any tiny molding defects on the transparent molding parts will be easy to identify.

So you need to make the best quality molding parts, the waste rate is higher, and need to use the high tech injection molding machine, and all of those are more costly than normal molding production.
