What is Injection Molding?


Injection molding is an efficient way to create large volumes of low-cost, high-quality products that require little or no processing after they're made. The material used in injection molds is heated and forced under high pressure into a cavity created by the injection molding machine. This process creates a three-dimensional object out of molten plastic that can be ejected from the tool using ejector pins placed inside it at various stages during production. Once finished, injectors can be reused multiple times before being replaced with new equipment or materials, making this manufacturing extremely cost-effective over time!

Injection Molding

Injection molding is the most common method of manufacturing plastic parts. It involves a mold being filled with a material and then heated until it melts and becomes plastic. The melted plastic is forced into the mold cavity at high pressure, which cools and hardens into a solid product.

The tooling used for injection molding can vary significantly in complexity and cost depending on how many parts you want to make or what type of plastic you use for your part(s). Many different kinds of molds can be used for injection molded parts, such as:

  • Honeycomb (2-piece) - This type uses honeycomb cores made from metal or glass fibers reinforced with carbon fiber webbing sandwiched between two halves that press together when pressing down on them during the cooling down phase after forming process has been completed successfully;

  • Solid Bar - This structure has straight bars running vertically through its length parallel to each other;

An injection molding process begins with raw material pellets loaded into a hopper and fed into a barrel. The material is melted and injected under high pressure into the cavity of an injection mold.

Types of Injection Molding

The types of injection molding are given below:

Plastic Injection Molding

If you've ever made a toy, you know that it's not just about the design - it's also about how well it's made. One of the main ways to ensure that your toy is high quality is by using plastic injection molding.

Plastic injection molding is a process used to create plastic products from scratch. Plastic injection molding involves injecting liquid plastic pellets into a mold and then allowing them to solidify under heat and pressure.

The resulting product is entirely free of any defects or imperfections, which means that it will be smooth and flawless on the outside and inside. You can be sure your finished product will look exactly like you wanted it to!

Metal Injection Molding

Metal injection molding is a manufacturing process that uses a high-pressure injection to create metal parts from metal powders. The parts are made in an injection molding machine with two halves connected by an inflow port and an outflow port.

In metal injection molding, metal powder is placed into the inlet port, which is forced through a ram and into the machine. This can be done either manually or automatically, depending on how the part is made. Once the metal has been injected into the mold and cooled, it will solidify and become a permanent part of your product. The metal injection molding process has many applications, including making plastic guns and electronic components such as circuit boards.

Custom Injection Molding

Custom injection molding is a type of molding that can be used to make custom products. It's a relatively new process, but it's becoming more common as companies try to differentiate themselves from the competition by producing their products. You'll create a product specifically for your business or brand when you work with custom injection molding.

Custom injection molding has many benefits compared to other types of molding. For one thing, it allows you to control every aspect of production - from the design of your product and how it fits together to what materials it's made of and how they're combined. You'll also have more control over production costs because you can make changes anytime without disrupting manufacturing operations or costing additional resources (like labor).

Custom injection molding lets you take full advantage of 3D printing technology. This means that rather than having prototypes made in metal or plastic parts, you can create physical models in 3D software and then use those designs as templates for creating molds in plastic that can be used repeatedly without needing further modifications each time they're used again!

Ways to Design and Shape a part

There are many different ways to design and shape a part so it can be ejected from an injection mold.

  • Ejection pins: A pin used to eject the product from the tooling. The pin pushes against the mold wall and forces it out of its hole so that no more material can be added or removed during processing.

  • Vacuum system: A system where air pressure is reduced below atmospheric pressure, which forces material out of holes in molds (excluding certain materials).


Injection molding is an effective way to manufacture plastic parts, offering several advantages over other processes. For example, injection molding allows for creating complex shapes that would be difficult or impossible with other methods. It also can make multiple parts at once in each cycle of operation, reducing waste and increasing productivity.
