Injection molding is the most commonly used method for manufacturing plastics products in which plastics are heated until they are converted into a liquid form, and then with the help of the injection molding machine, they are injected into a mold of the final desired part. In the mold, the plastics solidifies to form the final desired product.
The injection molding process allows the use of multiple plastics at the same time and the creation of intricate and complex parts of high strength. Injection molded plastic products require less finishing which helps in cost reduction. Apart from this, the process is quick and has a high output rate, and can be automated, which further reduces the overall cost of the manufactured products. All these benefits of the injection molding process will help drive the growth of the injection molded plastic market.
