Plastic injection moulding is a reliable and efficient technology to manufacture various plastic parts and products for different uses and industries, with multiple advantages. Here we explore a few benefits of plastic injection moulding.
- Strength and Durability
The plastic injection moulding process is ideal and recommended in cases where the manufactured products or parts need to be strong and durable.
It is because the manufacturers can easily use fillers in the injection moulding process. The fillers reduce the density of the plastic during the moulding process, resulting in added strength and durability.
- High Efficiency and Versatility
The injection moulding is a quick process compared to other methods of moulding thanks to the pre-design and pre-programming of the moulds before the actual moulding occurs.
A single mould can be used to manufacture more parts according to the client’s needs, making the process highly efficient and also cost-effective.
Furthermore, due to its high-pressure technology, the plastic injection moulding facilitates the production of a multitude of shapes, sizes, and intricate designs. Different types of plastics can also be used simultaneously with the added help of co-injection moulding.
- Speed and Automation
The main advantage of using plastic injection moulding is the automated process, which contributes to the reduction of overheads and manufacturing costs, at a higher speed and product output.
Automation also enables high accuracy in injection moulds and close tolerances during its making thanks to Computer-aided Design (CAD) and Computer-aided Manufacturing (CAM). The final parts will hardly require finishing touches after production.
The injection moulding machinery needs minimum labour to maintain and manage, further lowering costs with the process and the product, and passing the savings to the consumers.
