In an effort to promote understanding of the plastic injection molding process, Trademark Plastics has compiled a knowledge base of terms used in the manufacture of plastic parts for the benefit of our customers and you.
Plastic injection molding the most important process in the manufacturing of plastic parts. It is done by forcing melted plastic in to a mold cavity until it cools and forms a specific plastic shape. Plastic
Trademark Plastics, Inc. molding companies take your concept from initial prototype through production, delivery and finishing. They have a trained staff of experienced engineers, designers and toolmakers who work with clients from designing the concept to building the prototype and to the production of the actual custom mold. With the use of sophisticated computer aided design and technology and the latest equipment, they can provide clients with a technically superior mold and assure every product’s success. injection molding is very useful when the plastic parts that need to be produced are too complex or expensive to do by machine. With plastic injection molding, many parts can be made simultaneously (using the same mold).
Plastic molding manufacturers use several distinct molding techniques to produce plastic components. These techniques include thermoplastic and thermoset injection molding, transferring to resin, blow molding, gyratory molding, compression molding, thermoforming, structural foam molding and many others.
