What products can be made from injection moulding?

Table of Contents

The variety of injection molding products is relatively wide, and the range of applications is also relatively wide, especially in the textile equipment and automobile manufacturing process industry, there are a variety of shapes of injection molding products for accessories.

Medical equipment, stationery, educational supplies, and various containers, crates, and shoes can be seen everywhere in people’s daily life.

Injection-molded products are widely used in all fields of the national economies, such as transportation, packaging, post and telecommunications, communication, construction, home appliances, computers, aerospace, defense, etc. They have become indispensable means of production and consumer goods.

Among industrial products, injection-molded products include kitchenware (garbage cans, bowls, buckets, jugs, tableware, and various containers), housings for electrical equipment (hairdryers, vacuum cleaners, food mixers, etc.), toys and games, various products for the automotive industry, injection molded parts for many other products, etc.

Plastic injection molding machines with injection molding products are a relatively wide variety and wide range of applications, especially in the equipment and automotive manufacturing industry, there are a variety of shape injection molding products for accessories.

What are injection molded products?

Injection-molded products are products that are injection molded by injection molding machine by heating plasticized and melted, then injected into the molding mold cavity to be molded, cooled down by cooling, the melt cured and demolded, injection molding machine injection molded products.

All multipurpose plastic products that have been molded by injection molding machines are injection molded products. Including thermoplastic and now some thermosetting injection molding products.

Injection molding process characteristics

1) The size and precision of injection molded products are the same.

2) The labor required is relatively low. 

3) High production efficiency of injection molded products

4) Very little waste of raw materials during injection molding

5)The design, manufacturing, and injection molds trial period is long and the production is slow. 

6) Large start-up investment, so it is not suitable for the production of small-lot plastic parts. 

7) The quality of molded products is limited by many factors, so the technical requirements are higher and more difficult to master.

What are the common injection molded products in life?

1. Injection molded products in the medical industry

At present, there is a wide range of injection molding products in the medical industry and the healthcare industry relies heavily, such as high transparent PPT droppers, electronic thermometer shells, spray machine shell injection parts, laser writing instruments medical handboardsd, physiotherapy hot spine neck instrument plastic shell, medical sharps box, medical virus detector shell, oral X-ray machine shell and so on dozens of species.

2. Injection molding products for the home appliance industry

We commonly have handheld fans, humidifier shells, heater shells, rechargeable hand warmers, stirring machines, rice cooker shells, air conditioner shells, TV shells, hairdryer shells, water heater shells, and so on.

3. Injection molding products for the cosmetic packaging industry

Cosmetic packaging materials in the past a lot of glass materials to do, the main drawback is that the material is too heavy, easy to break, the price is also relatively expensive, now slowly replace the glass material with plastic materials.

Plastic materials occupy 90% of the cosmetic packaging materials, common products are lipstick tube, powder box, lip glaze tube, eyebrow pencil, slippery cream tube, lip gloss tube, dispensing bottles, makeup bottles and so on dozens of species.

4. Typical products made by plastic injection molding  

Plastic bottles are the most common product, with billions produced each year in a variety of shapes and sizes. Typically, plastic bottles used to hold drinking water and other beverages are made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) because this material is both strong and lightweight.

5. Electronic enclosures

They are also very commonly manufactured by injection molding.

Custom plastic enclosures used in devices such as remote controls, computers, televisions, medical devices, and other consumer electronic components are produced through the injection molding manufacturing process.

Plastic Injection molding process services can manufacture any custom plastic enclosure for virtually any application and size. 

6. Agriculture

OEMs designing for the agricultural market are turning to plastics as a low-cost alternative to metal components commonly used throughout the industry.

Plastics offer increased impact resistance during use, moisture, and resistance to extremely high or low temperatures. UV additives also help protect plastic parts from harsh weather conditions or exposure to corrosive substances.

7. Household

Molded cups, containers, parts, and drinkware are just some of the common items that can be customized with injection molding.  

8. Mechanical and automotive components

Bumpers, dashboards, radio controls, cup holders, and many other elements found in automobiles and vehicles, both inside and out, are manufactured by injection molding processes.

Summary

Injection molding is a very common manufacturing method used to produce everyday household items. Its applications span commercial, industrial, and consumer products.

Injection molding offers the versatility to produce designs with intricate detail or complexity, down to simple forms, in any size range from small to large objects.
