What is Injection Molding?

During injection molding, plastic granules are heated to their melting point and then forced under pressure into metal molds where the molten plastic hardens into a designated shape. The mold then opens and the newly formed part is removed and inspected, ready for shipment or secondary manufacturing operations.

Cycle time is relatively short and large quantities of parts can be produced quick. Some tools will produce multiple identical parts reducing even further the amount of time needed for mass production making injection molding a very efficient process.

The advantages of injection molding are many. Injection molded parts will have good mechanical properties such as strength-to weight ratio, low mass and good surface appearance.

Injection molding is one of the most cost effective ways of manufacturing a part or product.

At Advance Plastics we have seven injection presses in our factory ranging from 60 - 200 tons.

This means we can run a variety of parts  everyday so you can have your product quickly and  efficiently.

We incorporate a moldmaking shop on site to build and maintain our molds. We guarantee the molds for life as long as we run the production.

Please contact us if you already have a mold and would like us to quote on production.

We utilize all types of plastics resins, and work with both the customer and supplier to ensure that the right plastic is used for your product.

The following is a short list of what you can expect from utilizing Injection Molding

as your form of production.

Injection molding allows for high production output rates.

When producing your product you may use inserts within the mold. You may also use fillers for added strength.

Close tolerances on small intricate parts is possible with Injection Molding.

There is typically very little post production work required because the parts usually have a very finished look upon ejection.

All scrap may be reground to be reused, therefore there is very little waste.

Full automation is possible with Injection Molding.


Packaging and Assembly Services

If you need your product assembled and packaged after initial production we can help you with that as well. We work with talented designers and can help put a finished look to your products.

In addition to injection moulding, Advance Plastics also offers full assembly services in our secondary operation department. Value-added services help set Advance apart and allow us to offer one-stop-shop manufacturing services to you.

Secondary operations include: tapping, grinding, fastening, drilling and multiple other custom assembly operations available for your plastic part manufacturing. Since all assembly is done in the same facility as our injection moulding, lead times are reduced providing you with the quality and service you need to succeed.
