ADVANTAGES OF INJECTION MOLDING

Injection molding provides multiples benefits, making it a preferred choice for manufacturers looking to produce a wide range of products for larger production runs.

  • High Efficiency & Speed: this process allows for the production of large quantities of parts (500-10,000) at a rapid pace
  • Cost-Effectiveness: despite initial setup costs, injection molding is highly cost-effective for large production runs, with each part only taking seconds to a few minutes to mold
  • Complex Geometry: parts can be produced with intricate and complex shapes that are difficult to achieve with other manufacturing processes
  • Flexibility: injection molding allows for the use of exotic materials like translucents, transparents or elastomerics, resulting in a distinctive and functional product design
  • Consistency & Repeatability: this process ensures each part produced is virtually identical to the next one
  • Customization: parts can be easily customized to incorporate branding elements using painting, silk screening or pad printing
