Plastic Injection Molding Fundamentals

Plastic Injection Molding

At Eagle Stainless, we attribute our company’s success to our commitment to innovation. To meet the changing demands of our customers, we have adopted and brought on insert molding, and bonding which produces unmatched quality products and components for our clients in a wide variety of industries.

What is Plastic Injection Molding?

Plastic injection molding is a process we use for creating parts and components by “injecting” a melted plastic material into a metal mold. Within the mold “cavity” the plastic cools and hardens in its intended shape. Using our years of expertise and innovative technology, we create precision machined molds using stainless steel, tool steels, and other materials for prototype molds. This has resulted in highly detailed plastic pieces for clients in an extensive range of different industries. Plastic injection molding can be the ideal manufacturing solution for a wide range of products and components of all sizes! Our plastic injection molding experience gives us insight into the potential issues that can occur in the process. We’ve worked to develop an innovative system that yields high-quality results every time.

A Wide Variety of Plastic

When we talk about plastic injection molding, we aren’t just talking about one type of plastic. Since different applications require different levels of durability and strength, as well as other unique properties, we offer a wide range of plastic types. To suit all of our customer’s needs, we offer injection molding of numerous thermoplastic materials like Acrylic, Nylon, Polycarbonate, ABS, Polypropylene, Polyethylene, and several different engineered plastics like PTFE (teflon), PEEK, FEP, PFA, and TPE. If you aren’t sure which type of plastic will be best suited to your specifications, don’t worry; we can help you choose!

From Start to Finish

When your application requires a custom piece that is created by plastic injection molding, it’s important to choose a manufacturer who can offer all of the finishing services that will perfect it. When a component or product piece is molded, it still needs finishing services to give it the look, feel, and functionality it needs. Eagle Stainless offers everything you need for finishing and assembly in-house. At Eagle we handle everything from design to assembly, and everything in between, ensuring that your plastic injection molded product receives attention to detail during every step of the process.

No matter whether you need a tiny component or a large order of multiple plastic injection molded parts, Eagle Stainless can help. Contact us today to get started!
