Explore the World of Plastic Injection Molding With Confidence
While plastic injection molding may not be rocket science, it is still a very complex manufacturing process. It involves great attention to detail and there are many factors to take into consideration. First, the part design must be developed and maximized for manufacturability. Then a mold must be built. This involves computerized as well as hand tooling. The mold must then be tested along with resin and color options to determine the best formulation for the project. Press size and configuration are required to begin the manufacturing process. Once all the preliminary phases are complete, fine tuning of the mold and materials may be required before production runs are scheduled.
The last section of the eBook contains a “Glossary of Terms.” There are hundreds of terms used in this business. We have highlighted the most common nomenclature used when discussing mold parts, materials and problems using feedback from professionals in the field.
