This is one of the most popular ways to create plastic products. For example, you are having a manufacturing company and you need to manufacture a large amount of plastic products in a short time period, also those products should be in same size. Then you could use plastic injection moulding to manufacture your products faster than ever before. The best thing about it is that it is cost effective and this moulding also requires little supervision from staff. Injection moulding machine works in a few stages. In the first stage, the given plastic is melted and then that melted plastic is inserted into a mould machine. That mould machine is then squeezed together to create a shape for your plastic product. The second stage is cooling stage. Here, the moulding machine will cool all your formed plastic products.
Nowadays many people are using this type of moulding to make their product faster and also the injection moulding is more accurate. All the parts in the moulding machine are computerized that means all your work will run like clockwork and the outcome will be more accurate. Handmade plastic products can be a nightmare and sometimes will go wrong. Injection moulding products are always better than our handmade plastic products. Nowadays most of the car manufacturing companies use this injection moulding a lot. For example, the lid of your car's radiator will be manufactured using this technology. There are millions of cars made every year all over the world and therefore this sort of process is required to make sure accuracy and speed.
Some Design Guidelines:
Now we are going to see 5 more design techniques:
1# You should avoid small holes when you are designing a perfect product. Because these small holes are too intricate to mould, these small holes also lead to tool breakage.
2# If you want any hole in your product, through-holes are best.
3# sometimes there will be a variance in surface consistency or angle. This variance is totally depending on the type of material used. Sometimes this variance is little consequence for some products. But if your moulding design requires an exact surface or angle then you should be careful when designing that product.
4# You should use the uniform screw sizes, because they will make your manufactured product much more accessible to many people.
5# Each additional component in your manufactured product will increase the risk of anything going wrong. So always you should make your product more and more simple. Then only it will be easy to handle.
Advantages of plastic injection moulding:
1# It allows you to create more products within a short time period.
2# When manufacturing your product you may use fillers, these will increase product strength.
3# You can use more than one material.
4# Human work is reduced
5# Design flexibility
6# The outcome will be more accurate than handmade plastic products.
These are some design guidelines and advantages about injection moulding.
