Let’s now give you some insight how Norck manufactures parts with injection molding.

What is Injection molding?

It is a plastic molding process in which molten plastic is fed into a mold cavity under high pressure. Mold is made from hardened steel and contains the shape of the part to be molded. The Injection molding process is used for high and medium volume production due to the high cost of mold fabrication.

What are the advantages of injection molding?

Injection molding offers many advantages:

• Accuracy: Injection molding offers tight tolerances, around ±0.05mm.
• Complex shapes: Injection molding provides complex shapes within closer tolerances than many other mass production processes
• Diversity of materials and colors: Many materials can be used to make injection molding and a large selection of colors.
• Rapid fabrication process: The fabrication process time is cut short due to the simplicity of the process.
• No finishing is required: There is no need for post-molding operations as the molded parts come off the mold and can have a mirror glass surface, mat color, or texture.
• Low production costs: The production cost is reduced since post-machining operations are reduced or eliminated.

But there are some disadvantages as well:

   - Higher cost of tooling 
   - Long cycle time

How is it fabricated?

Injection molding is made through four steps:

1. Plastification: The plastic granules are transferred from the hopper to the mold using a rotating screw and molted using heaters.

2. Injection: The screw will advance to increase pressure in the injection chamber to inject the molted plastic into the mold. The two cavities are maintained close until the plastic solidifies

3. Cooling: After injection, the molted plastic will be cooled down to become solid using a cooling circuit. The screw will hold its position to hold the pressure inside the mold.

4. Ejection: After the molted plastic solidifies using a cooling circuit, the Die is opened, and the part is ejected via ejector pins. The screws will retreat to prepare for the next injection.

Obtaining a fully functional part might require extra processing for features that can’t be made with the Injection molding process, such as taping. The designed part should follow Injection molding design guidelines.
