Injection Molding

Injection molding is where the mold is clamped to the vertical press-platen. The material (usually BMC) is fed into a barrel. Then, it is injected into a hot mold thanks to the injection plunger (or screw but mostly for thermoplastics). The compound flows easily into the cavity. When the mold opens, the part is released thanks to the ejectors. The cycle time of injection is very short due to the automation and this process allows for the use of multiple shot cavity. It’s especially used for small and complex parts.
