Injection Moulding Processes
Plastic Injection Moulding
Plastic injection moulding is a manufacturing process where resin in a barrel is heated to a molten state, then shot into a mould to form a final production-grade thermoplastic part.
Liquid Silicone Rubber Moulding
Liquid silicone rubber moulding is a thermoset process that mixes a two-component compound together, which is then heat cured in the mould with a platinum catalyst to produce a final part.
Overmoulding & Insert Moulding
Overmoulding and insert moulding are two-part injection moulding processes where one material is overlaid onto a second substrate part or metal insert to create a single component.
We have two injection moulding service options—prototyping and on-demand manufacturing—with each offering their own benefits depending on your project needs. If part quantities are higher, an affordable piece-part price is important and quick-turn production throughout the product life cycle is critical. For this our on-demand manufacturing option is ideal.
Why Choose Protolabs for Injection Moulding?
“It has been very enlightening to us here at HP that we are able to get parts so rapidly out of the actual materials that we’re going to use in the final production.“
