    What's in this report

    What is the Contract Injection Molding Manufacturing Industry?

    This industry provides injection molding manufacturing services on a contract basis. Industry services include mold development from a prototype and the reproduction of parts from the mold using thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. Operators feed the materials into a heated barrel, mix and then force them into a mold cavity where they cool and harden to the configuration of the cavity. Injection molded products are then manufactured according to the client’s specifications.

    Flow Marks
  • Production defect when injection speeds are too slow, resulting in the plastic cooling down too much during injection.
  • Robotic Molding
  • Process automation such as mounting mobile inspection systems on automatic devices, or using multiple-axis robots that can remove parts from the mold and position them for further processes.
  • Thermoplastics
  • A thermoplastic, or thermosoftening plastic, is a plastic material polymer that becomes pliable or moldable above a specific temperature and solidifies upon cooling.
