Industry Information

Prototype Injection Molding

Prototype injection molding is a form of injection molding that is used to make short run batches, or single products used for prototype purposes. These prototypes are made in the same fashion as long run batches, but they are used to show clients and consumers an example of the product in order to work out more design details or to get approval before spending the time and the money on the long run batch of injection molded parts. Prototype injection molding can be utilized for a number of different applications such as wire spools, packaging, bottle caps, automotive parts, musical instruments, tables and chairs, mechanical parts, gears, and just about every other plastic product that is on the market today.

As stated before the prototype injection molding process works the same as the injection molding process in that is it used to manufacture parts through the process of injecting a molten plastic material into a mold where it hardens and goes through secondary processes until it is in the final finished product form. There are a number of different materials that work with this type of process, however, thermoplastics are the most common due to their versatility and useful properties. The thermoplastic material passes through a heated barrel where it is mixed and then forced into the mold; once the mold is filled the material is cooled and hardens in the shape of the mold. The mold is designed in order to fit the specifications and requirements of the applications; this is where the prototype comes in handy because if there is something wrong with the mold it will show on the prototype.

No matter what your application may be it is important to understand all of your needs and clarify your specifications. Taking the time to completely analyze your intended applications will drastically decrease development time and costs, and you are more likely to receive a product that perfectly fits your application needs. This is why we encourage you to find a trusted prototype injection molding company that can assist you in the development of your molded product. They can help you discover design flaws and modify your specifications to better accommodate your needs and budget. As with all things in the manufacturing industry, understanding what you want and what you need is the most important step to finding a product that will fit your applications.
