How to Reduce the Cost of Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic injection molding is a common manufacturing process used to manufacture plastic products. However, the cost of this process can be quite expensive at the beginning. To help minimize expenses, here are some tips on how to reduce the cost of plastic injection molding: • Streamline Your Design: Make sure your product design is both optimized and efficient so that it requires fewer materials and less time in production. This will help lower costs associated with development, materials and labor costs. SPM can provide a DFM analysis for your project by checking your part drawings, in this case, your parts will be mouldability to avoid some possible issues to cost more. And our engineer can offer technical consultation for any of your requests or problems. • Use Quality and proper Tooling: Invest in high-quality tooling for your molds that can produce more parts in fewer cycles, thereby reducing your total cost per part. Besides, based on your annual volume, SPM can make different kinds of tools with different materials and crafts for cost-saving. • Reusable Materials: Consider using reusable materials such as old mold base instead of new steel for your molds to reduce the overall cost if your demand quantity is not high. • Optimize Cycle Time: Reduce the cycle time required for each part by reviewing and analyzing the steps involved and making adjustments where necessary. This can lead to significant savings over time as shorter cycle times result in fewer parts needing to be produced each day or week.The history of plastic injection molding dates back to the late 1800s, although the technology has evolved greatly over the past century. It was first used as a means to mass produce rabbit and duck decoys for hunters in 1890. Throughout the 20th century, plastic injection molding became increasingly popular due to its accuracy and cost effectiveness for manufacturing products such as auto parts, medical devices, toys, kitchenware, sports equipment and household appliances. Today, it is one of the most commonly used manufacturing processes around the world.

History of injection molding process

Applications of injection molding

What is injection molding

Injection molding is a manufacturing process used to create objects out of thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. A variety of materials can be used, including HDPE,LDPE, ABS, nylon (or with GF), polypropylene, PPSU, PPEK, PC/ABS, POM, PMMA, TPU, TPE, TPR and more. It involves injecting molten material into a precision-machined mold and allowing it to cool, harden, and take the shape of the die cavity. Injection molding is a popular choice for manufacturing parts because of its accuracy, repeatability, and speed. It can produce complex parts with intricate details in relatively short timelines compared to other design processes. Common products made using injection molding include medical devices, toys, electrical components, kitchenware, household items, automotive parts, and more.

Regular defects of plastic injection molded parts

• Flash: When the plastic exceeds the edges of the mold and forms a thin edge of excess material. – This can be remedied by increasing the injection pressure or reducing the injection speed. It may also require a redesign of the mould itself. • Short shot: This happens when not enough molten plastic is injected into the cavity, resulting in an incomplete and weak part. – Increasing the plastic temperature and/or holding time should resolve this issue. It may also require a redesign of the mould itself. • Warpage or sink marks: These occur when the part is unevenly cooled, creating uneven pressure in different sections of the part. – This can be solved by ensuring even cooling throughout the whole part and making sure that cooling channels are properly placed where needed. • Splay or flow lines: This defect occurs when excessive amounts of resin are injected into the mold cavity, resulting in visible lines across the surface of the finished product. – Reducing material viscosity, increasing parts draft angles, and reducing gate size may help to reduce this type of defect. • Bubbles/Voids: These are caused by air trapped within the resin while it is being injected into the mold. – Minimizing air entrapment through proper material selection and gating design should mitigate this defect. • Burrs/Pits/Sharp Corners: This is caused by a misplaced gate or too much pressure during injection, resulting in sharp burrs or corners along with visible scratches and pits on some parts. – This can be improved by limiting gate sizes to reduce gate pressure, minimizing gate distance from edges, increasing runner sizes, adjusting mold temperatures, and slowing down filling times as needed.

How to Reduce the Cost of Plastic Injection Molding

Cost of injection molding production

• Make production forecast: Make a good plan for the production in advance and send a forecast to the manufacturer, they can make stock for some material if their price is estimated to go higher and the shipping can be arranged by sea with much lower shipping cost instead of air or train. • Choose an Experienced Manufacturer: Working with an experienced manufacturer who has experience in plastic injection molding like SPM can help reduce costs associated with trial and error processes as they already know what works and what doesn’t work for certain designs or materials being used in production runsThe cost of setting up an injection molding process is largely dependent on the type and complexity of the parts being created, as well as the equipment required. Generally speaking, costs may include: • Initial Investment for Equipment - Costs for injection molds, machines, robots and auxiliaries like air compressors or installation services can vary from a few thousand to several hundred thousand dollars depending on the size of the project. • Materials and Match Plates - Costs for materials used in the injection molding process such as plastic pellets, resins, core pins, ejector pins and match plates are usually calculated by weight. • Tooling – Design time for molds and tooling must also be taken into account when calculating setup costs. • Labor Costs - Labor costs may be associated with setup of the machine, operator training, maintenance or other related labor costs.
