Injection moulding is the process of plastics processing WITH mould, probably the most common. In itself, however, the word « injection » is very generic:
« Operation which consists of injecting a product into a material, an object. »
« The introduction under pressure of a liquid or gas into the body. »
« Massive injection of capital to bail out an economy, help a company. »
« A technique for moulding plastics in which the product is fluidised and then injected into a two-die mould. (Thermoplastics and thermosets are moulded in injection moulding machines of the piston type [the material is fluidised against the walls of a cylinder and pushed into the mould by a piston] or screw type [a helical screw carries the material against a heated wall and advances it towards the nozzle].) » (Source : Larousse)
Plastic sheet metal is the most suitable and economical technology for small and medium-sized series. Our small and medium series technologies are effective from a few dozen to several thousand parts; the tipping point with injection moulding depends on the type of product, and the expectation of stability without modification.
If this point is reached, and it becomes more advantageous to change technology, we will offer you the transfer to the most suitable technology of the moment (probably injection), via our department: « LTP-Multitechnology ».
If your box meets a market of large series of several hundreds of thousands of pieces, our subcontracting department “LTP-Multitechnology” will propose you the transfer in the most adapted technology of the moment.
