Injection Mold Parts
Injection molding is the most commonly used manufacturing process
for the fabrication of plastic parts.
A wide variety of products are manufactured using injection
molding, which vary greatly in their size, complexity, and
The injection molding process requires the use of an injection
molding machine, raw plastic material, and a mold. The plastic is
melted in the injection molding machine and then injected into the
mold, where it cools and solidifies into the final part. The steps
in this process are described in greater detail in the next
Injection molding is used to produce thin-walled plastic parts for
a wide variety of applications, one of the most common being
Plastic housing is a thin-walled enclosure, often requiring many ribs and bosses on the interior.
These housings are used in a variety of products including
household appliances, consumer electronics, power tools, and as
Other common thin-walled products include different types of open
containers, such as buckets.
Injection molding is also used to produce several everyday items
such as toothbrushes or small plastic toys. Many medical devices,
including valves and syringes, are manufactured using injection
molding as well.
Forwa provides quick-turn thermoplastic injection molding often used for
prototyping, bridge tooling and short-run manufacturing up to
We use advanced aluminum alloy molds that allow us to eliminate the
costly and time-consuming custom engineering that normally goes
into the development of tooling.
Quick-turn injection molding uses the industry standard production
process for parts, so it’s an excellent predictor of
manufacturability when you move to large-scale production.
