Next week, we will launch our new eBook “An Introduction to Plastic Injection Molding.” This resource guide contains information (more than 40 pages) to help designers, engineers and purchasing professionals navigate the world of plastic injection molding. Our goal is to make our customers more knowledgeable about what goes into making a plastic part.  It is written to provide a basic understanding of the presses, the processes and the cost factors involved in manufacturing.  

 An Intro To Plastic Injection Molding                                            

Each chapter is dedicated to one aspect of the plastic manufacturing process.  The topics include:

  • Types of plastic injection molding

  • Key ingredients to achieving perfect parts

  • The basics of an injection molding machine

  • Cold runners versus hot runner systems

  • Determining the cost of an injection mold

  • Common part defects

Not familiar with the language of plastic injection molding?  Never fear.  We have also included a 7-page glossary of common industry terms.

While, plastic injection molding may not be rocket science, it is a very complex manufacturing process.  We hope, through this eBook, that our readers will be better prepared to tackle their next plastic part project.

Look for our email next week and be sure to request your copy.
