The Plastic Injection Molding Process
Before your idea can be shaped into a custom plastic part, computer files must be created. If you have your own CAD files ready send them over and we will prepare a quote for you within 24 hours. Once designs have been made into CAD files your mold is produced in our CNC shop.
Creating the Mold
CAD files are used to create your mold. The mold is not the finished product – it is the shell with which the final product will be created. Molds are produced in our own in-house CNC shop. Producing molds in our own factory saves production time, decreases cost, and ensures the security of your design. Molds are hollowed out metal cavities able to produce thousands of identical plastic parts.
The entire molding process happens very quickly. Plastic pellets are inserted into the mold which are then liquified through superheating. Once the plastic cools it forms to the mold perfectly achieving even complex geometric angles and shapes. Layers can be added for color, strength, and texture through a process called Overmolding. Ask our team about overmolding processes and how they improve and protect your plastic parts.
