Plastic, quite literally has become the cornerstone of the modern society. A large number of things are made from plastic and it is really hard to imagine what the life would be like if plastics were never invented. With a comprehensive range of everyday use products being created from plastic, it is quite easy to understand why injection mold is such a huge industry today.
Approximately 40% of all products are manufactured using an injection molding procedure. Of this 20%, a large number of these utility products are produced by using customized reshaping technology. Mainly, six steps are involved in the process after the prototype is made and approved.
The very first step involves the clamping of the mould or the shaper. This clamping unit is one of main 3 standard components of the principal machine. They are the shape givers, the injection unit and the clamping unit. The clamp is what virtually holds the shaper while the melted material is being injected, the mould is held under extreme pressure while the injected stuff gets cooled. The same procedure is adopted by all mold manufacturers.
Next is the real injection of the molten material. The stuff usually begins this procedure as pellets which are put into a large sized hopper. These pellets are then placed into a cylinder. Here they are given extreme heat until they become fully molten to be easily forced into the shaper or the mould. The stuff remains in the mould, where it is clamped under heavy pressure till it gets cooled.
The next couple of steps involve the dwelling phase, which actually makes sure that each and every cavity of the mould is filled up with the fully melted plastic. After the dwelling stage, the cooling process starts and continues till the stuff becomes absolutely solid inside the form. At last, the mould is opened and the newly shaped part is ejected from its shaper. The part is further cleaned of any extra plastic stuff from the mold.
