    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.
