Big Boy Plastics are specialists in the manufacturing process of injection moulding. We use this process in order to produce durable plastic products such as chairs, crates and accessories. Plastic injection moulding is an extremely versatile way of producing plastic parts and there are numerous advantages to using this method.
Injection moulding allows for detailed features and complex design. This is made possible by the high pressure at which the injection mould is created. As the thermoplastic is pressed firmly against the mould due to extremely high pressure, the finer details are embedded into the final product. Complex features and intricate shapes can be manufactured as a result of this high pressure injection moulding process.
This manufacturing process delivers a highly efficient service. Injection moulding occurs at a much higher rate when compared with other plastic moulding processes. This high production rate results in cost-saving efficiency.
Injection moulding allows for the use of fillers in the manufacturing process. This adds enhanced strength and durability to the final product. It is also possible use multiple plastic types simultaneously. Big Boy Plastics utilise thermosetting polymers and thermoplastics. This versatility is certainly advantageous to plastic manufacturers that utilise more than one type of plastic in the production of their products.
Plastic injection moulding is an automated process that is performed by a machine that requires one operator. This automated process reduces the overall production costs as fewer labourers are required to produce a large volume of plastic products. This automation results in the precise manufacturing of parts which utilise computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing. The variety of plastics products that are produced are only limited by your imagination.
Another advantage of injection moulding is the complete elimination of waste. Any residual or scrap plastic can be melted and re-used, making the process environmentally friendly.
