Plastic injection moulding or very commonly referred to as injection moulding is a manufacturing process used in the mass fabrication of plastic materials. This process involves an injection of molten plastic material into the mould where it cools and is solidified to its final form. It is ideal for manufacturing a high quantity of plastic products, which serves many industries and individuals.
What are its advantages?
Fast in production: There are a few reasons that plastic injection moulding is known as the most common and most efficient form of moulding. This process is fast compared to other methods and moreover the high production output rate makes it even more efficient and cost-effective. In a short period, a greater quantity of moulds can be produced. Wizaps manufactures one of the best plastic injection moulders.
Enhanced strength: Strength is one of the important features when designing a plastic injection moulded part. Here the designer needs to know whether the part needs to be flexible or rigid. With Wizaps’ plastic injection moulders, the user/customer can decide on the strength required for the moulding of a particular part or product and depending upon the usage they can change the strength settings.
Design that can be repeated: The injection can produce multiple parts with consistent shapes and dimensions. The parts produced in different moulding cycles are guaranteed to be identical. This is one of the advantages when a particular product consistency with a specific design is required.
Low labour cost and waste of material: Injection moulding is a highly automated process, where most of its steps are performed by the machine controlled by an operator and intervention by manual labour is minimal. This reduces the labour cost and manufacturing cost. Even the sprues and runners ( the leftover bites of plastic created by the tunnels by which the plastic material reaches the actual moulds) can be reground and the material reused.
Colour and material: Choosing the right material and colour is a very essential factor in creating a plastic part. With the availability of both the material and colours, the possibility is endless in producing more colourful and attractive products. Due to the advancements of the polymer technology over the period of years, new resins with different colours are being brought into the market.
Special surface finish engraves and prints: In addition to a range of colours, the injection moulding machine can be used to manufacture the products/parts with some engraving and prints on the surface to give a special finish. Wizaps is one such company that offers plastic injection moulders that can produce quality and economical plastic moulded components with special finish and designs.
