Injection molding is a mature manufacturing process that allows for plastic parts to be produced in large volumes. The process involves melting plastic pellets that once malleable enough, are injected at pressure into a mold cavity, which fills and solidifies to produce the final product.
Rapid injection molding is the process of making injection molds for prototyping, bridging, and short production run parts in less time and at a reduced cost than full production molds.
Typically, the tooling costs between 10,000INR– 8,00,000INR. However, depending on the complexity of the project, type of tool, and other factors.
The unit cost is what makes the initial investment in injection mold tools worthwhile. You can expect the cost per unit is very less.
Injection mold tools can last between 100 to over 100,000 and even 1M+ cycles. The lifespan of an injection mold depends on the mold material, mold structure design, maintenance, time between production runs and operating conditions.
Injection molding is one of the most popular and versatile manufacturing technologies for producing mid-to-high volumes of plastic parts. It is widely used in many industries, including:
medical & pharmaceutical
