6 advantages of plastic injection molding
Injection molding allows to produce in a short time great quantities of products and plastic components, guaranteeing the dimensional repeatability of the parts and cutting costs of production thanks to the automation of the production process.
Plastic injection molding is one of the most widespread techniques among all plastic transformation processes.
In this procedure, the techno-plastic material is melted and injected at a high pressure into the closed molds, which will be opened once the material is solidified and the components are ready.
The large spread of this technique can be explained by its important advantages in terms of production efficiency and cost reduction.
But that’s not all: there are many other various advantages of plastic injection molding that make this technique a valid solution for the production of plastic components.
That is why Idea Stampi uses plastic injection molding to provide its clients with products of quality and that meet their different needs.
Let’s see 6 advantages of plastic injection molding.
1. High efficiency
Plastic injection molding means obtaining in a very short time a great quantity of products. In addition, we do not have to forget the possibility of cutting the costs of production, also thanks to the automation of the entire process.
2. Production of complex design components
The flexibility of plastic injection molding results in the possibility of realizing parts with complex geometries, impossibile to obtain with other techniques. This way, injection molding consents to meet every need, making a great level of product customization possible.
To this advantage contribute also the experience and know-how of the supplier that has a deep knowledge of the entire process and of the characteristics of the different plastic materials, just like Idea Stampi.
3. Strength and stability of products
One other advantage of plastic injection molding concerns the quality of the products, which boast of a high level of strength and resistance. Moreover, thanks to their stability, plastic components are characterized by long durability, contributing to the quality of the final product.
4. Choice of colors and materials
Injection molding can be realized using a wide range of materials and colors. In this regard, Idea Stampi offers different techno-polymers according to the final use of the product, guaranteeing to the client a great possibility of choice and customization.
These are just some of the polymers used by Idea Stampi:
- Polyamides: used in the engineering field to realize electrical insulation sleeves, cables, gear boxes
- Polyethylene Terephthalate PET: used for realizing plastic bottles and food containers, it can also be recycled
- Polybutylene Terephthalate PBT: ideal for producing electrical and automotive components, fans and coils
- Polyetheretherketone PEEK: used for pistons, valve parts, gears, dental implants.
- Polycarbonate PC: a great substitute for glass, it is used to produce CDs, glasses and in the construction field.
5. Reduced waste
Thanks to the use of very precise molds, like the one realized and used by Idea Stampi, the components produced have no smudges or imperfections and the precision injection molding process is carried out easily. This means a reduced quantity of waste which in turn influences the reduction of costs and time needed by the whole productive process.
6. Production of components for many industrial sectors
One of the advantages of plastic injection molding, already mentioned, is its versatility. It is thanks to the possibility of producing components with various shapes, size, geometries and materials that Idea Stampi can work for many industrial sectors, such as the automotive, electrical, electronical, medical, transport… The company’s production, in fact, includes plastic components intended for the most various objects and devices.
