Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, molds are made by a moldmaker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminum, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels of cars. Plastic manufacturing is one of the largest industrial areas in the developed world. Today’s business environment is driving manufacturers to bring better products to market faster, with higher quality and lower cost. This is true in the plastics molding and manufacturing industries. This trend forces original equipment manufacturers, molders, toolmakers, machine manufacturers, and material suppliers to work together and be involved at the earliest stage of product development in today’s intensely time— conscious, competitive environment. This Handbook will discuss what Injection molding is, and how it functions in a process that softens a plastic material with heat and forces it to flow into a closed mold, then, the material cools and solidifies, forming a specific product. The Handbook will also shows manufacturing of quality injection-molded parts depends on the successes of part and mold design, process control, and material selection.
