89. What is plastic injection molding?

Now plastic injection molding is known by many people. But whether did you really know what is plastic injection molding?

They have many advantage.The major advantage is that it is very reliable and cost-effective. Also, this process produces smooth and finished products that require no further finishing. The equipments involved in plastic mold injection molding are very sophisticated and costly. They are known as injection molding machines. The machinery used are also heavy and some even weigh up to tons of kilogram. But only when these kinds of machines are used the final product turns out to be a quality product.

The plastic molding when poured, takes the shape of the cavity or the mold used and get solidified or settled in it. After some time molded material is ejected out from the cavity. The same cavity can be used to make any number of molds. The mold can be of any preferred shape. The mold has two components namely the injection mold and the ejector mold. The melted plastic mold resin is transferred into the mold and the ejector mold helps in ejecting the plastic mold part after it is solidified in the mold without any damage using ejecting pins.

The plastic mold parts experience a change in their physical as well as chemical properties once the cooling process takes place. The most eminent design contemplation of the plastic mold injection molding process is the width of the mold. Usually a mold with a uniform wall thickness is favored. This helps in reducing the change in mechanical properties of the plastic mold part.
