Plastic Injection Molding
As an experienced plastic injection molding manufacturer in China, we can produce a wide range of custom plastic molded parts, industries served cover medical, industrial, electronics, etc.
Rubber Injection Molding
In rubber molding, we are able to manufacture a variety of molded parts with expected finishes on demand. We have been dedicated to providing the most cost-effective injection molding solutions.
Overmolding & Insert Molding
Overmolding and insert molding are also two common injection molding processes. For example, toothbrush handles are over-molded parts, and insert molded parts include pulleys, fan blades, and so on.

Materials for Injection Molding
A wide range of more than 70 thermoplastic & thermoset materials can be selected in our custom injection moulding services.
And heat resistance , tensile strength, heat deflection, hardness and durability are the factors that should be considered for material selection.
In addition to this, we will also consider material costs and end use.
ABS is a thermoplastic which is resistant to corrosion, easy to process, and the melting point is relatively low.
It is primarily used in a variety of enclosures application.
Polyvinyl Chloride has mechanical and electrical insulation properties with high hardness. It is resistant to many chemical liquids.
It is often used for the follow parts:
- Medical containers,
DFM Tips for Injection Molding
Uniform wall thickness is necessary, otherwise it will influence the mechanical performance, cosmetics of the injection molding parts.
The ribs are prone to generating sink marks. Therefore, the wall thickness of ribs have got to be significantly reduced if possible.
Undercuts in injection molding make it difficult for injection molded parts to be ejected. This should be avoided during manufacturing.
The location of the parting line should be considered carefully.
Avoid to set fillets around the parting line, otherwise it will lead to unwelcome defects in the mold.
When the injection molded part finishes cooling, the part is ejected from the mold by the ejector pin, and in most cases there will be ejector marks that should be avoided.
Multi-cavity injection molds can save costs because more injection molded parts can be produced in one production cycle, and productivity increases exponentially.
Due to the inherent weakness of C-shaped parts, should be cautious with C-shaped injection molded parts, as they maybe warp even more, compared to unfilled material.
A properly designed draft angle, and applying it when tooling design will make the injection molded parts to be released easily from the mold without prying them out.
Use radius correctly
Use radii only necessary, for example, to remove sharp edges. In general, proper usage of radii during injection molding can improve the strength of the molded parts.
Why Choose Us For Injection Molding
As you known that most injection molding suppliers in China can only customize parts as per drawings, lack of technical advice and cost saving methods.
We, on the other hand, can offer DFM tips and optimized injection moulding solutions.
We have the ability to quote quickly, and submit it within 24 hours. Shipping costs and lead time will also be estimated in real time for your reference.
We have the flexibility to support you from tooling design, rapid prototyping to batch manufacturing, and support to design multi-cavity mold according to the actual requirement.
Each order is subject to at least two quality checks to ensure high-quality delivery, and every work given by the customer is completed carefully and the work progress is kept informed in anytime.
With a full range of injection moulding capabilities, we can offer you one-stop custom injection molding services with diverse surface finishes to meet your cosmetic needs.
Every stage, from raw material sourcing to production and quality control, is optimized to achieve the best cost control in the injection moulding industry, while we maintain only the lowest reasonable profit to sustain company operations.
Surface Finish for Injection molded parts
|SPI A1, SPI A2, SPI A3||SPI B1, SPI B2, SPI B3||SPI C1, SPI C2, SPI C3||SPI D1, SPI D2, SPI D3|
*Additional notes on finishes:
Draft angle will vary depending on the required finishes. Material color matching will be based on the RAL color chart.
Surface finish grades for injection molded parts that comply with SPI (Society of the Plastics Industry) standards go from the least refined to the most refined and are classified as follows:
- Grade A – Glossy, finishing with grit diamond
- Grade B – Semi-gloss, finishing with grit paper
- Grade C – Matte, finishing with grit stone
- Grade D – Textured, finishing from the dry blast with glass beads
The Injection Molding Process
Learning more about the injection molding process will help to make the necessary considerations in designing injection molded parts and how to plan production schedules.
DESIGN 3D MODEL
Choose colors, textures and materials, and define dimensions and structure to generate 3D model.
Rapid prototyping will be applied to test injection molded parts for compliance with functional, strength, aesthetic requirements.
The purpose of this stage is to learn more about all the potential risks or issues for tooling design and injection molding, and is to verify the feasibility of the CAD design.
After DFM demonstration, start tooling design and injection moulding manufacturing.
At this stage, should be ensured that make as no or only small modifications as possible.
T1 SAMPLES TRIAL
T1 samples are prepared and sent to customers for testing.
If T1 samples do not meet the requirements, adjustments and improvements need to be made accordingly.
T2 & T3 SAMPLES PLAN
T2, or T3 sample plan will be executed depends on actual needs.
KICK OFF PRODUCTION
After samples’s approval, it’s time for kicking off production.
Definition of A & B Side
When designing injection molded parts, the different finish requirements of its cosmetic side and functional side should be considered and balanced against their end use.
The critical surfaces should be as defect-free as possible, while minor defects on secondary surfaces should be minimized.
The two surfaces of injection molded parts normally have different purposes.
Side A, the side facing the cavity, is known as the cosmetic side and is usually the visible outer surface. This side should be smooth or have the required texture.
Side B, the back half of the mold, is known as the functional side and normally contains some structural elements that can be hidden after assembly (e.g. bosses, ribs, etc).
This side will normally have minor defects similar to ejector pin marks.
Common defects of Injection Molded Parts
Most defects in injection molded parts are related to uneven or inadequate flow and solidification of the molten material, from being filled to being cooled.
Therefore, the first priority is to ensure good design.
Some common defects in injection molding are listed below and should be carefully considered and avoided during designing and manufacturing.
When the surface of an injection molded part is solidified posterior to its interior, small sink marks may appear on the surface here.
Most of the defects of sink marks are caused by uneven wall thickness.
Two effective ways to solve this problem are adding ribs and coring out of thick area.
The shrinkage that accompanies cooling during solidifying can exert some pressure on the mold.
When the molded part is ejected from the mold, drag marks occur due to its walls scraping against the mold.
Typically, the injection molded parts designed without a draft angle (with vertical walls) are most likely to lead to these defects.
When different sections or areas of the injection molded parts are cooled unevenly (certain sections are cooled slower than others), then the parts will bend under the action of internal stresses.
Non-constant wall thickness design is the major cause of bending.
Flash marks can affect the effectiveness of sealing and assembly.
This type of defect usually occurs when excess molten material spills out of the mold cavity, and mainly at the parting line or ejector pin position.
Inside the mold, small stripes (called knit lines) with discoloration may occur when two streams of molten material meet.
These stripes not only interfere with the visual appearance of the molded part (which is deemed unacceptable for aesthetically demanding cosmetic parts) but also affect its performance to some extent.
