Custom plastic injection molds are used in injection molding processes using an injection molding machine such as the Engel 40 Ton Tiebarless Injection Molder (shown below). These are generally used to produce plastic parts using a core and a cavity, runners & gates.
Plastic Injection Molding is a manufacturing process for making plastic parts in large volume. It is generally used in mass-production processes where the same part is being created thousands or millions of times in in a cycle.
The advantage of custom plastic injection molding is the ability to scale production to mass quantities. The initial upfront costs of designing & creating the molds are offset by the large quantities that are produced, thus lowering the price per unit during injection molded manufacturing process. The price drops dramatically as more parts are produced. Another advantage to injection molding is that there are low scrap rates relative to traditional manufacturing processes like CNC machining which cut away substantial amount of original material in a block or sheet.
