    What Is Injection Molding?

    Injection molding is a means of forming material (most often plastic) into different shapes. This is accomplished by heating the material to a liquid state, then injecting it into a premade mold. Once hardened, the completed piece can be removed from the mold and used as desired.

    The injection molding process is versatile, easy to perform, and suitable for both simple and complex shapes. By simplifying what would otherwise take a large amount of time to make by hand, a much larger volume of pieces can be made per hour. Injection molding machines can use pre-designed molds or those that meet custom specifications to create repeatable products.

    Industries Utilizing Injection Molding

    Numerous industries use injection molding to create parts, equipment, and other items. These industries include:

    Aerospace, Defense, and Security

Elements of this image furnished by NASAThe aerospace, defense, and security industries are known for how quickly their technology evolves. Injection molding allows for the speedy production of various equipment frequently used by these industries. Among many other injection molded components, we can produce the following components for the aerospace, defense, and security industries:

    • Battery housings
    • Robotic components
    • Space components
    • Valve housings and covers

    High-Performance Electromagnetic Components

    Due to their specialized nature, producing high-performance electromagnetic components can be a difficult task. Injection molding allows for the production of specialized and complex parts such as testing equipment related to retention force, continuity and impedance, and AC/DC HI-POT. This process can also be used to create custom electrical verification equipment. Our services include:

    • Solenoid manufacturing
    • Hand soldering
    • Pin crimping
    • Coil winding

    Medical
