A plastic molding company will typically use a technique called injection molding. It is desirable because products can be made quickly and consistently. Plastic is also versatile and low in cost, so it is a desirable material for molding.

Plastic Molding Company Functions

A plastic molding company will begin the injection molding process by melting plastic pellets. Then, the liquid is inserted into a specific mold design. After cooling, the plastic product may be removed from the mold.

The design of the product and the mold is of primary concern to a plastic molding company. The company will save money with smaller products that have thin walls. Walls can be thick or thin, but must be uniform over the entire product.

Companies will try to design mold that are easy to use. A mold with some angles will allow the product to be removed easily. Rounded corners will also minimize stress to the product.
