Custom injection molding is a desirable method for manufacturing plastic products. It allows you to design a mold for creating a product of any size or shape. There are many options to consider when designing a custom product.

Custom Injection Molding

Custom injection molding can be performed with many types of materials. The most common material is plastic. Plastic is low in cost and it is also a versatile material for molding.

Custom injection molding is initiated with melting the desired material. Once a liquid is formed, it can be injected into the desired mold. After cooling, the product may be removed.

It is important to pay attention to the design of each product mold. Walls should be uniform in thickness. Corners should also be rounded so the product does not suffer from added stress upon removal from the mold.
