Injection molding is a proven process for producing plastic parts with high accuracy and fine feature detail at medium to high volume. Injection molding requires that a mold (tool) be built specifically for the part to be produced. Molds typically have a 6 to 8 week lead-time depending on size and complexity. The mold will require a significant capital investment, but each part coming off the mold will be relatively inexpensive. The pro of injection molding is that you can make a lot of parts fast and inexpensively. The con of injection molding is that you are locked into a design and any change to you part geometry can incur significant cost to modify of build a new mold.
- High dimensional accuracy
- Fine feature detail
- Low part cost
- Facilitates mass production
Aluminum, P20 and tool steel
Multi-cavity, family tools, inserts
DFM, project reviews, critical tolerances
Wide range of materials
T1 in days not weeks (10-15 days)
Option for ITAR compliant
USR can turn quotes around in days and have T1 samples completed within 10-15 days with full production completed within 25 days (complex parts will require longer lead times).
