Injection molding companies design and manufacture different types of parts and products. There are many different types of materials that can be used for injection molding. Companies may also design parts in various shapes, sizes, textures, and colors.

Functions of Injection Molding Companies

Injection molding companies must first design the mold they wish to use. They will typically design molds with some angles so that the product can easily be removed from the mold. Rounding corners will also minimize stress to the object.

Injection molding companies must decide on their injection molding method as well. Injection molding machines can be expensive. If the company wants to save money, they can design smaller products and create them with a micro-molding machine which is less expensive.

After the preliminary details have been decided, the injection molding process may begin. The desired material is first melted into a liquid and is then injected into the mold design. After cooling, the product may be removed from the mold and the process can begin again.
