Equipment to Produce Precision Injection Molded Components

Some end-users prefer to utilize different vendors for each step of the injection molding process. Once an engineer at one firm has completed the design and the mold has been cast at another, the difficult task of finding the proper equipment to produce precision injected molded components begins. Other end-users feel, however, that quality control is better served and that it is generally more...

The Benefits of Injection Mold Filling Simulation

Mold filling simulation is a very helpful tool for the injection molder and plastic part designer. The process uses software to virtually simulate the filling, packing and cooling of a molded plastic part. It allows the mold/part designer to make critical decisions about the design before the injection mold is manufactured, when design changes are significantly less expensive. When considering...

Why You Should Outsource Your Injection Molding Project

The investment to design, implement and maintain in-house injection molding projects can be complicated and costly. Resources needed to devote to this endeavor, such as equipment and personnel, are circumvented by outsourcing such projects to expert companies. Using an outsourced company with a history of experience, and the latest cutting-edge equipment, can easily outweigh the undertaking of...

Advantages of Xyloy(TM) Injection Moldable Metal Alloys

Xyloy(TM) Injection Moldable Metal is distinctly different. It's not metal injection molding (MIM), powder injection molding (PIM), metal-filled plastic, or thixomolding. Instead, Xyloy is a non-ferrous alloy, pelletized for use with conventional feeding systems and tooling already in use for plastics. Xyloy can produce the same parts, but it allows design flexibility and even parts...
