What is Injection molding?

Molding is a manufacturing process that involves shaping a liquid or malleable raw material by using a fixed frame, known as either a mold or a matrix. The mold is a hollow cavity receptacle, commonly made of metal, to pour liquid plastic, metal, ceramic, or glass material. In most cases, manufacturers derived the mold from the initial pattern or template of the final object; its main objective is to reproduce multiple uniform copies of the final product. The liquid must cool and harden inside the mold to achieve the final configuration. Injection molding services generally use a release agent or ejections pins to remove the mold.

We are surrounded by both ordinary and complex objects manufactured due to the molding manufacturing process. Molding has occurred throughout the millennia. Historians have discovered evidence of its usage as far back as the Bronze Age, where stones were used as molds to produce spear tips.

Modern molding processes include plastic injection molding, Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding, overmolding, and insert molding. The plastic injection molding process could produce customized prototypes and end-use parts. The standard process eliminates the use of embedded heating or cooling lines within the molds so that molders, also known as molding technicians, can carefully monitor fill pressure, aesthetics, and overall part quality.

  • Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding is a highly flexible material, meaning its molded state is permanent and remelted; it is not possible at all, contrary to thermoplastic. For CNC Machining, you need a specifically designed LSR molding tool, thus providing different surface finish options for the end-use LSR part.

  • Overmolding allows a single part to contain multiple materials. Once you have the molded substrate part’s entire run, you can set up overmold tooling on the press. It is then hand-placed into the mold and overmolded with either a thermoplastic or liquid silicone rubber material. Insert molding is similar to overmolding, but most commonly uses a preformed metal substrate part that overmolds it with plastic to create the final piece.
