What is Injection Molding?
Injection molding is a complex manufacturing process. Using a specialized hydraulic or electric machine, the process melts, injects and sets plastic into the shape of a mold that’s fitted into the machine.
3D printing and injection molding are both techniques for producing plastic parts and components, but each manufacturing process has its own advantages and can be used together as complementary manufacturing methods.
Injection molding has longer turnaround times to prepare for the creation of parts (4-12 weeks even for simple parts), which means it is not well suited to frequent design changes. However, despite the long turnaround times this process is ideal for producing parts in mid to high volumes (500+ parts per run). The mold tool is also suited for producing large or small components of any complexity.
Injection molding is best suited for:
Large batch production as you can create multiple identical objects simultaneously
Strong, solid designs that are based on one continuous form
Smooth finishes for parts that move against other objects. The ease of creating smooth parts means that there is reduced friction.
Lower cost for medium to large production
