Our Custom Injection Molding Services

Utilizing RapidDirect’s injection molding solutions in China, we shape plastic parts based on part size, intricacy, and volume requirements. On-demand prototypes and production runs are made possible with machines ranging from 30t to 1800t, ensuring every design’s accuracy. Benefit from free design consulation on each injection molding order. Expect quick turnarounds with lead times as short as 15 days.

Injection molds are crucial for mass-producing precise plastic molded parts. Made primarily from steel or aluminum, their creation involves intricate design, precise machining, and assembly.

Plastic injection molding is a technique where molten thermplastic is forced into molds, solidifying into parts. Enabling efficient, and large-scale production with consistent quality.

Overmolding

Overmolding combines different plastic materials by molding one over another, enhancing functionality, aesthetics, and grip, while reducing assembly time and costs. 

Insert Molding

Insert molding encases a pre-set insert with plastic, merging metal and plastic, enhancing strength, simplifying assembly, and ensuring precision integration.

How Custom Injection Molding Works?

The injection molding process involves feeding raw plastic materials into an injection molding machine, melting them down, and then injecting them into an aluminum or steel mold. Upon cooling, a production-grade thermoplastic part is formed and ejected for further use or assembly.

Injection Molding Overview

What's Injection Molding?

Injection molding is a manufacturing process used to produce parts in large volumes. It involves injecting molten material, often plastic, into a mold, which then cools and solidifies into the desired shape. This process is extensively used in various industries due to its ability to produce intricate and complex parts with high precision and consistency.

What Are the 4 Stages of Injection Molding?

  1. Clamping: The two halves of the mold are clamped together by the injection molding machine. This ensures that the mold remains shut during the injection process.

  2. Injection: Molten plastic is injected into the closed mold at high pressure. The injected plastic is generally packed and held under pressure to ensure all mold spaces are filled.

  3. Cooling: Once the mold is filled, the plastic begins to cool and solidify, taking the shape of the mold’s cavities. Cooling rates are carefully managed to avoid defects and ensure the part’s dimensions and properties are consistent.

  4. Ejection: After the part has cooled and solidified, the mold opens, and an ejection mechanism pushes the finished part out of the mold. The cycle then restarts for the next part.

What are the Advantages of Injection Molding?

High-Quality Production: Consistently produces precise, high-quality parts.
Efficiency: Ideal for mass production and large quantities.
Versatility: Suitable for both prototyping and low-volume production.
Cost-Effective Tooling: Aluminum tooling is economical, especially at higher volumes.
Material Diversity: Compatible with a wide range of materials.
Varied Surface Finishes: Allows for different aesthetic and functional finishes.
Complexity: Expertly crafts intricate and detailed components.

What are Injection Molding Applications?

Injection molding is a versatile manufacturing process used across various industries, like automotive, medical, consumer, and aerospace. Here are some of typical parts:
– Dashboards
– Bottle caps
– Sterile
– Casings for smartphones, televisions, and other gadgets
– Precision parts for aircraft

FAQs about RapidDirect Injection Molding Service

Our mold-making process includes 6 steps:

Step 1: Production arrangement: Determine all of the requirements and arrange the production.

Step 2: DFM report analysis: Provide free but detailed production DFM report for further feasibility analysis.

Step 3: Production the mold: Put the mold into production and provide the Tooling Schedule form for the whole cycle for clients to check the process at any time.

Step 4: Free sample to test: Put the mold into production and provide the Tooling Schedule form for the whole cycle for clients to check the process at any time.

Step 5: Mass production:Client confirms the samples are qualified, then officially proceed with the subsequent production.

Step 6: Mold saving: Production is completed and delivered after quality inspection. Mold will be cleaned and properly stored for the next round of parts production.

Tolerances are crucial in injection molding; without proper specification and control, assembly issues can arise. At RapidDirect, we adhere to the ISO 2068-c standard for molding tolerances, but can accommodate tighter specifications if needed.

We have no minimum order requirement. However, larger quantities will yield more competitive pricing.

Once an order is placed, mold design and creation typically take around 35 days, with an additional 3-5 days for the production of the molded parts.

The cost of our services varies based on several factors such as component size, mold complexity, number of cavities, material type, and post-processing requirements. We provide quotes after analyzing these factors on our platform.

At RapidDirect, we offer a wide range of thermoplastic and thermosetting materials suitable for various applications. Some common materials include ABS, Polycarbonate, Polypropylene, and TPE. For a full list of materials or custom material requests, please contact our customer service.

Yes, RapidDirect offers rapid prototyping services. This allows you to test and verify your design before committing to large-scale production.
