What is Injection Molding?
Injection molding is a plastic shaping process in which melted plastic material, or resin, is injected at high pressures into pre-shaped metal molds to produce parts or finished products. It is a simpler process than machining or milling, and is useful for the production of high quantities of identical parts in a short period of time. In addition, scrap from moldings can be easily reinserted into the process, significantly reducing material costs due to wastage.
