Injection molding is a process used to create parts by injecting melted material into a mold. The mold is made of two halves (the cavity and the core) that are separated by a sprue. The melted material is then injected into the mold under high pressure, where it cools and solidifies into the desired shape.
This process is commonly used to produce a wide range of plastic parts, such as toys, packaging containers, electronic housings, automotive components, and medical devices. The advantages of injection molding include its ability to produce large quantities of identical parts, its ability to produce parts with complex shapes and intricate details, and its cost-effectiveness for large production runs.
Injection molding is also highly customizable, allowing for the use of different materials and the creation of intricate mold designs to achieve the desired end product. This versatility makes it a well accepted choice for many industries and applications.
