Injection Molding refers to the method that a mold is gotten by cooling and solidifying the heated and melted material injected into the cavity via high pressure. The method is suitable for the mass production of parts with complex shape and is one of the important processing methods. The molding process can be broadly divided into the following six stages of “combining mold – injection – packing – cooling – opening mold – product removal “, and once the above process is repeated, products can be continuously produced.
The molding process can also be divided into method and die-casting method. The molding machine (referred to as injection machine or injection molding machine) is a main molding equipment making thermoplastic or thermosetting material into plastics of various shapes by using plastics molding mold, while molding is realized through injection machine and mold.
Types of molding machines are: vertical, horizontal and fully electrical, but whichever type molding machine is, it affords two basic functions:(1) to heat up plastic until it reaches the molten state;
(2) to bring the molten plastic to bear pressure to make it shoot and fill fully the mold cavity.
What Is Injection Molding?
Injection molding is a manufacturing process that involves forcing molten material, such as plastic, metal, or rubber, into a mold cavity. The material is then cooled and ejected as a finished part. Injection molding is one of the most widely used manufacturing techniques in the world and is used to produce a wide variety of products, from automotive parts to medical devices. It is also one of the most cost-effective methods of producing parts in high volumes.
How Does Injection Molding Work?
The injection molding process involves injecting a molten material into a mold cavity. The mold is typically made from metal and is designed to create the desired shape of the part. The molten material is injected into the mold under high pressure, which helps to ensure a uniform and consistent part. Once the material has cooled and solidified, the part is ejected from the mold.
Advantages of Injection Molding
Injection molding offers a number of advantages over other manufacturing processes. It is capable of producing parts with complex shapes and intricate details that would be difficult to achieve with other methods. Additionally, injection molding is a relatively fast process, allowing for high-volume production. The cost of injection molding is also relatively low, making it a great option for producing parts in large quantities.

List of some injection molding expertise for different plastic resins:
Injection Molding of Polypropylene (PP)
Injection Molding of PE (Polyethylene)
Injection molding of ABS
Injection molding of PA(Nylon)
List of injection molding defects and trouble shootings:
Black spots or black stripes on the molded parts
Flow veins or flow traces
A)Characteristics of vertical injection molding machine
1. Injection device and mold clamping device are in the same vertical center line with the mold opening and closing along the upper and lower direction. It covers an area of only about half of the horizontal machine.
2. Easy to realize insert molding. As mold surface faces up, it’s easy to position the putting of insert. It can easily implement automatic insert molding by using the machine with fixed lower molding board and movable upper molding board and combining drawstring conveyor and manipulator.
3. The weight of mold is supported by level mold board for opening and closing movements up and down, not inclined to arise such phenomenon as horizontal machine falling down forwards caused by gravity, making mold board not be able to open and close. Conducive to persistently maintain the accuracy of machinery and mold.
4. Conducive to precision molding and each plastic cavity can be removed through simple manipulator.
5. Generally it’s open around the mold clamping device, thus it’s easy to configure various types of automated devices and adaptable to automatic molding of complex and sophisticated products.
6. It is easy for drawstring conveying device to achieve installation by stringing middle of mold and automatic production.
7. It is easy to ensure the consistency of the flow of resin within the mold and temperature distribution of the mold.
8. It’s equipped with forms of rotary table, movable table and declining table and easy to realize insert molding, combination molding within the mold.
9. In case of small batch trial production, the mold structure is simple with low cost and easy to uninstall.
10. It has withstood the test of several earthquakes; due to the low center of gravity, the vertical machine affords better shock resistance compared to the horizontal one.
B) Characteristics of horizontal injection molding machine
1. With low body, it has no height restrictions for the placement plant.
2. In occasion that product can automatically fall, automatical molding can also be achieved without the use of manipulator.
3. With low body, it’s easy for feeding and maintenance.
4. the mold needs to be installed by crane.
5. In case that several machines are parallel arranged, the molding products are easily collected and packaged from the conveyor belt.
C) Characteristics of electrical injection molding machine
The fully electrical machine has been recognized with the advantages of low power consumption and high precision. The fully electrical injection molding machine can save 50% -70% of energy and also has a similar effect as for the application of cooling water. In addition, as fully electrical injection molding machine adopts a short-trip independently driven rod, it affords high precision. The high-precision reciprocating motion of entirely electric injection molding machine can not be ignored, because quality requirements for the injection machine parts have been significantly improved.
Another advantage of the fully electrical injection molding machine is to reduce noise, which not only benefits the workers, but also reduces the cost of investment and construction for sound insulation production workshop.
Features Of Injection Blow Molding Technique:
One-step and fast molding without rough selvedge, continuous production to meet the GMP standard; accurate dimensions on bottleneck and screw thread, meet various sealing requirements;
Major applications: pharmaceutical, food, chemical, and cosmetic bottle packaging industries.
In summary, it is a cost-effective manufacturing process that is continuously improving. There are new molding techniques being developed and refined by manufacturers every day to meet customer needs and create better plastic parts. With the right knowledge and experience, manufacturers can tackle even the most complex projects with confidence. It’s no wonder that is one of the most widely used manufacturing methods in the world.
The injection molding technology is a backbone of all the plastic production in the world, from the teapots to your smartphone, from the small vacuum cleaners to the large refrigerators, from the sports equipment to your granola bar or liposuction toys. There are many different kinds of plastics out there and they are used in a number of industries, but they have one thing in common: they all went through.
Injection Molding is the process of melting a mixture or mixture of various materials at high temperatures to create a solid. The aim is to make an injectable part using a series of molds having different compositions. In order to ensure that all components fit exactly into the mold, slight adjustments will have to be made in manufacturing process
