What Is Plastic Injection Molding?
Used to create large quantities of plastic parts in succession, plastic injection molding is a manufacturing process that produces molds from thermoplastic and thermosetting materials.
These plastic materials are placed into a hot barrel, mixed, and forced into a mold cavity by a ram injector or reciprocating screw. Then, the materials cool and harden to the configuration of the mold cavity, creating the finished injection-molded parts. The time it takes to produce a finished part depends on its size and complexity, and can range from mere seconds to a few minutes.
By taking advantage of custom automation using robotic parts handling, automatic and semi-automatic runner systems, and robotic delegating, Atlantis Industries eliminates the typical sources of product variation.
When considering plastic injection molding for your needs, there are many advantages to factor in. One of the biggest advantages is repeatability. After your particular mold is created, every single part it produces is exactly the same.

Other advantages of plastic injection molding include tight tolerances, low labor costs, broad range of material selection, marginal waste and in most cases no finishing required.
