Plastic injection molding offers many advantages over other methods of plastic production, with QT Manufacturing offering value added benefits with turnkey plastic injection molding in Dallas since 1990. Injection molding offers manufacturers cost saving, efficient production for a multitude of items across several industries. The automotive and aerospace industries utilize plastic injection molding in their manufacturing processes to gain several advantages with part production. Here are the top 4 advantages of plastic injection molding.
1.Efficient for High Volume Production
Plastic injection molding in Dallas and all over the world is recognized as an efficient method of high volume production. With mold capabilities to run multiple cavities with each shot, some molds produce multiple parts with each cycle. Depending on the size of the part, some molds contain 2 cavities or up to 16 or 32 cavities, providing a highly efficient method to mass produce smaller components. Quick cycle times in a matter of seconds allows some molds to eject thousands of parts per hour. High efficiency, multiple cavitation and short cycle times all equate to increased productivity and profitability.
2.Versatility with Part Design
The possibilities of color and texture are endless due to a wide selection of various polymers and advances in specialty resins. Plastic injection molding allows for mass production of parts in virtually any color and texture – from toughened glass-filled nylons to rubber-like, flexible materials. Experienced injection molders will know the properties of each type of resin and how it will perform in intended applications.
QT Manufacturing offers skilled injection mold construction and plastic injection molding in Dallas with experience in molding a wide range of common and engineering grade resins. We offer expertise with the most important material properties, such as melt flow, tensile strength, elasticity, water absorption and all vital characteristics of a wide range of polymers.
3.Ability to Mass Produce Complex, Precision Components
Plastic injection molding allows for the mass production of complex, precision components that consistently meet tight tolerances in critical areas. Consistency is key to providing quality parts and is a huge advantage of plastic injection molding. With a quality constructed mold and skilled process technicians, injection molding offers a reliable method of manufacturing millions of parts with the exact same critical areas, even in small parts with thin walls or complex designs.
4.Automation Provides Low-Cost Production
Plastic injection molding provides a method to produce high-volume production with very low labor costs by incorporating automation into the process. In most cases, the technician will set the press to run automatically with predetermined variables and conditions. Plastic injection molders who utilize automated technology reap big rewards in cost-saving efficiencies with little to no supervision required in many automatic molding processes.
Our company employs experienced mold designers who provide expertise in mold construction that meets the tight tolerances of precision components. We follow a detailed checklist to ensure all critical components and areas are well thought out, following strict Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) procedures. Our quality policy is adhered to throughout the organization as part of our ISO9001:2015 and AS9100D registrations.
