Injection Moulding Processes

Plastic Injection Moulding

Black plastic part

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

silicone rubber part

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.


On-Demand Manufacturing

​We have two injection moulding service optionsprototyping 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?

The advantages of injection moulding

Injection moulding is an excellent manufacturing process for producing mid- to high-volumes of plastic parts cost effectively and quickly. Once we have developed the mould tool, the injection moulding machine can be left to run with very little intervention to reduce labour costs and help keep the cost per part down. But what are the other advantages of IM?
