Injection Molding

Injection molding is a process used in manufacturing that produces parts from plastic materials. The plastic is fed into a heated reservoir, optionally mixed with other elements and forced into a mold cavity. The injection molding process traces its origins as far back as 1872 with the invention of the first injection molding machine.

As you can see, injection molding has a lengthy history, and refinements are made on an ongoing basis by professional injection molding companies such as Nyloncraft. The injection molding process has been used to make small parts like combs and buttons.

However, Nyloncraft's expertise with Injection Molding allows us to create a wide variety of products. Our 88 ton to 3,000 ton injection molding machines can produce parts from the size of a button to the front end of a car!

The majority of today's products from diverse industries such as medical, consumer products, and the transportation sector feature extensive use of injection molded plastics.

Injection Molding - The Future?

In the 1967 film The Graduate, Mr. Robinson offered a single word of career advice to Ben, the character played by Dustin Hoffman: "Plastics." His words could not be more prophetic. Injection molding offers many advantages to alternative manufacturing methods, including low scrap (including recycling and reclamation of scrap - pieces can be melted and recycled), high productivity, and minimal finishing requirements.
