Injection Molded Parts

Injection molding is a proven process for producing plastic parts with high accuracy and fine feature detail at medium to high volume. Injection molding requires that a mold (tool) be built specifically for the part to be produced. Molds typically have a 6 to 8 week lead-time depending on size and complextiy. The mold will require a significant capital investment, but each part coming off the mold will be relatively inexpensive. The pro of injection molding is that you can make a lot of parts fast and inexpensively. The con of injection molding is that you are locked into a design and any change to you part geometry can incur significant cost to modify of build a new mold.
