About Plastic Injection Moulding
Plastic injection moulding is a similar process to die casting, but used for creating parts from plastic material.
The process involves injecting molten plastic under pressure into a mould cavity of a die that has been machined into the shape of the component. Just like high pressure die casting, plastic injection moulding manufactures large quantities of parts which have a high quality and accuracy, very quickly.
Employing either thermosetting or thermoplastic techniques, this process is capable of producing a high yield with great accuracy and precision.
It is possible to use plastic injection moulding with a wide range of plastics; some of those commonly used include PVC, Polypropylene, Nylon, ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene).
