How Much Does Injection Molding Cost? Injection molding is one of the most common processes used for manufacturing plastic parts and components. Injection molding offers a cost-effective manufacturing solution for many applications. What Is Injection Molding? Injection molding is a manufacturing process typically used for the mass-production of parts when thousands or even millions are […]

6 Common Plastic Resins for Injection Molding

Common Plastic Resins for Injection Molding Plastic injection molding is a manufacturing process that enables the production of large volumes of identical parts. It is considered to be one of the fastest, most efficient production methods for plastic parts used in the industrial sector today. It is typically used in projects that require the production […]

3 Types of Insert Molding and Encapsulation

Insert Injection Molding Insert molding is a specialized form of injection molding used to embed a plastic or metal component (the insert) into a final plastic product. Some inserts—such as wood and metal stiffening inserts—may be included solely for structural support, but others will add functionality to a product, such as threaded inserts.  The exact […]

Benefits of Short-Run Injection Molding

Benefits of Short-Run Injection Molding Short-run plastic injection molding, also known as low-volume injection molding, is a quick and inexpensive molding process used to manufacture simple plastic components and parts. The process is used to create molds out of high-grade aluminum and lower grade steels, which are less durable than high production molds.  As a […]
