What You Need to Know About Materials in Complex Injection Molding
With the freedom to create new features – and cost-effectively achieve process efficiencies – it’s evident why many design engineers lean toward parts and products that require complex injection molding.
What isn’t always clear, however, is what goes into it. That’s probably why it’s called “complex” injection molding, which involves more than a few considerations especially at the beginning of the process. Among them is the material used to make the actual mold, in addition to the plastic materials for the part. Here are pointers to keep in mind when working through it with a molder.
