137. What is custom injection molding?

When you need the product design idea, you'll need to find a production tooling engineer to build a custom plastic molding part.

Understanding custom injection molding is the most common method of producing plastic molds. A engineer first builds a mold of the part in relief, which becomes the template for every successive manufactured part. With custom injection molding, once the mold is designed and crafted, the cost of producing subsequent parts is reduced dramatically.

Design concept One of the greatest benefits of working with a manufacturing engineer is gaining access to years of design experience. The best way to communicate a design idea to an engineer is in terms of use cases, or how the end product will be used. This is a good exercise for you also, as it helps you to work through all the possible scenarios in which the piece may be used in order to shave off years of trial and error.

The right custom injection molding company should ask you lots of questions about your product so that they can truly bring the concept in your mind into reality. Providing the custom injection molding engineer with use cases, as well as some other visual influences, can help you achieve a superbly designed piece that exceeds your original expectations.
