Also known as “plastic injection,” injection moulding is a manufacturing process using thermo-formable materials, such as making plastic bottles or plumbing and plumbing parts. These examples are essentially made of thermoplastic materials. In addition, the majority of thermoplastic parts are made using injection moulds. In practice, the plastic material is softened by heat. During thedynamic injectionphase, the molten material is injected at high pressure into a mould that has one or more cavities that give the part the desired shape. The material is then inserted into a mould and cooled.
Over time, moulds used for injection moulding need precision machining to regain the desired tolerances. Without this mold optimization, a fault, even if it is only a fraction of a millimeter, can cause production defects during injection molding, and even interrupt the production process.
At Machinage Gagné, our professional and experienced team offers you the necessary assistance to help you optimize the preventative maintenance, maintenance and repair of your injection molds.
