Plastic Injection Moulding

Global Sourcing Services (GSS), offers high quality plastic Injection moulding services for a variety of industries. GSS can manufacture a huge variety of products in a number of materials to suit your specific requirements.

Plastic injection moulding is the most common method of part manufacturing and is ideal for producing high volumes of the same object whether it be a small component or large product.

 

The Tooling Process:

The injection moulding process begins with the design and manufacture of tooling in the form of a mould.  When tooling is designed, factors such as hardness of steel used and number of cavities are very important and need to be taken into consideration due to the costs involved in creating high quality precision tooling.

GSS can create all required tooling for your project and manage this tooling throughout the life of the project and beyond. Depending on your product design, our engineers can determine the most efficient size and design of tooling required which can save you a substantial amount of time and money.

The Production Process:

The injection moulding process begins with feeding granular plastic from a hopper into a heated barrel. These granules are slowly moved forward by a screw-type plunger until the plastic is forced into a heated chamber where it is then melted.

The molten plastic material is then forced through the injection nozzle into the mould cavity/s. Depending on the factors such as product size, design complexity and material, there are many aspects to consider such as shrinkage when he product cools and solidifies. To avoid such shrinkage, engineers will work out the cycle time or the time pressure is maintained in the mould to compensate for this shrinkage. The cycle time is the time from which molten plastic is injected into the mould cavity to the time the product solidifies into a shape that has conformed to the contour of the mould and is ejected from the mould as a unit.

Depending on the type of product you require, GSS will go through all these aspects with our engineers to create high quality tooling for your products.

How to get started Today?

Simply give GSS a call to discuss your product requirements. Once we have discussed your product and have drawings or product samples, we will speak to our factories and get estimated costs of any tooling required and calculate landed the costs per unit.

We will then manufacture any moulds required and move forward to the sampling stage. Pre-production samples will be produced for you to check before mass production.

When these samples are approved, GSS will manage the production of the products. Our aim is to have this done in a timely manner with the specified tolerances and approved samples as our measures.

GSS will then arrange the packaging, freight, customs clearance, and local delivery of products to your door-step.

 WHATEVER YOUR PRODUCT OR APPLICATION, GSS WILL BE HAPPY TO DISCUSS IT WITH YOU!
