What Is An Injection Molding Machine

Views: 82 Author: Site Editor Publish Time: Origin: Site

Injection molding machine is also known as injection machine. It is the main molding equipment for making thermoplastic or thermosetting plastics into various shapes of plastic products using plastic molding dies.

 

Main types of injection molding machines

1. Rubber injection molding: Rubber injection molding is a production method in which rubber is injected directly from the barrel into the model to vulcanize. The advantages of rubber injection molding are: although it is an intermittent operation, the molding cycle is short, the production efficiency is high, the blank preparation process is eliminated, the labor intensity is small, and the product quality is excellent.

2. Plastic injection: Plastic injection is a method of plastic products. The molten plastic is injected into the plastic product mold by pressure, and then cooled and molded to obtain various plastic parts. There are mechanical injection molding machines dedicated to injection molding. The most commonly used plastics are polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PA, polystyrene, etc.

3. Molding and injection molding: The resulting shape is often the final product, and no other processing is required before installation or use as the final product. Many details, such as protrusions, ribs, and threads, can be formed in one step of injection molding.

 

Advantages

The main advantage of injection moulding is being able to scale up production to produce a large number of parts. Once the initial costs of the design and the moulds have been covered, the price of manufacturing is very low. The cost of production drops as more parts are produced.

Injection moulding also produces minimal wastage when compared to traditional manufacturing processes like CNC machining, which cuts away excess materials. Despite this, injection moulding does produce some waste, mainly from the sprue, the runners, the gate locations, and any overflow material that leaks out of the part cavity (also called ‘flash’).

The final advantage of injection moulding is that it allows for the production of many identical parts, which allows for part reliability and consistency in high volume production.

Applications

Injection moulding is used for a range of applications where a repeatable manufacturing process is required. This includes manufacturing items such as wire spools, packaging, bottle tops, toys, combs, musical instruments (and components), chairs, small tables, storage containers, mechanical parts, and automotive parts and components.

Injection moulding is the most common method for manufacturing plastic parts, particularly in high volumes.
