When discussing production processes like how injection molded plastics are made, there will obviously be short-cut processes that utilize the basics of the original but are able to do it faster and for smaller quantities. There are a number of reasons that a method like this, such as Rapid Injection Molds or rapid prototype injection molding, is necessary. When a company is developing a new product, they need to create prototypes to test before they run a full-line production. Sometimes a company needs a limited supply of products that are significantly fewer than the average number in normal mass production. With situations like these, the quickness and cheapness of rapid injection molding for […]
Rapid injection molding
Rapid injection molding is a popular manufacturing technique that has been idolized for years. Rapid injection molding is similar to conventional molding, yet different enough to affect how parts are designed. This technique lets companies quickly get low-cost and dimensionally accurate prototypes as well as low-volume production parts from plastics.
Rapid injection molding falls between rapid prototyping and conventional injection molding. This technique supports prototyping, bridge tooling, and low-volume production. Additive methods such as FDM and SLA work well for testing form and fit, but often such parts are not a substitute for testing with real injection molded parts. Rapid injection molding is also fast […]
What is Injection Moulding
Injection moulding (or Injection Molding) is a manufacturing technology for producing products from plastics. Injecting the molten plastic resin at high pressure into an injection mould, which the mold is made according to the desired part shape, the part shape was created by designer using some CAD design software ( such as UG, Solidworks etc), The mould is made by a mould company (or moldmaker) from metal material or aluminum, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part by some high technical machines like CNC machine, EDM machine, lather machine, grinding machine, wire-cutting machine, etc, step by step to […]
