We will evaluate your part design and modify it to be efficiently injection molded. Then, we will build the mold for the part. Next, your mold will be put into an injection molding press to make production parts. On average the entire process takes 8-10 weeks.
Most material is application specific. If you don’t have a material selected for your application, we can help and offer some guidance. Often several resins can be sampled but the customer has final approval before proceeding.
The geometry of the part, the amount of parts needed, your mold tooling budget and the application the part is being used for will all influence your decision to injection mold the part.
