INJECTION MOLDING SERVICE
think3D offers a powerful technology with its hydromechanical twin-platen design and single-piston injection system. Injection Molding is one of the preferred methods for manufacturing parts because it has multiple advantages over other methods of plastic molding. With 3D Printing, CNC Machining, Vacuum Casting, Injection Molding services all at one place, we are a truly one-stop shop for your manufacturing needs.
MACHINES WE HAVE
HORIZONTAL INJECTION MOLDING
Injection Molding Machines are reliable, power efficient, consistent , and trouble free long life operation with minimum maintenance cost. Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and injected into a mould cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity.
VERTICAL INJECTION MOLDING
Vertical injection molding machines are very versatile and can save valuable floor space. With vertical injection molding – the mold will open and close in a vertical direction. Vertical injection molding machines are primarily used for applications that create finished products that contain two pieces utilizing the concept of over molding or insert molding.
DESKTOP INJECTION MOLDING
Development of small injection moulding machine for forming small plastic articles in small-scale industries. This work which entailed design, construction and test small injection moulding machine that was capable of forming small plastic articles by injecting molten resins into a closed, cooled mould, where it solidifies to give the desired products was developed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the injection molding process?
Injection moulding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed (Using a helical shaped screw), and injected (Forced) into a mould cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity.
Why is injection moulding used?
Using injection molding also ensures the parts manufactured hardly require any work after the production. This is because the parts have more or less a finished appearance after they are ejected from the injection molds. Today, plastic injection molding is an environment-friendly process.
What is rotational molding process?
Rotational molding, rotomolding, rotomold or rotocasting is a production process to form hollow parts of limitless size. This is a cost-effective method to produce large plastic parts. Resins are added into a mold that's heated and rotated slowly, both vertically and horizontally.
What is meant by back pressure in injection molding?
A back pressure is the pressure in an injection molding machine that is exerted by the material when the material is injected into the mold.
Which plastic is used for injection moulding?
Different plastics used for injection molding are:
- Polyoxymethylene (POM)
- Polycarbonate / ABS
- Nylon 32% Glass Fiber
- Acrylic (PMMA)
- Polyetherimide (PEI)
What is the difference between core and cavity?
A core is a device used in casting and moulding processes to produce internal cavities and re entrant angles. The cycle begins when the mould closes, followed by the injection of the polymer into the mould cavity.
What are injection molds made of?
Pouring or injecting them into molds to make a plastic part for a product. the manufacturer has to first commissioned a mold making company to design and produce a plastic injection mold. the mold begins as bars of chromium steel a high durability metal that can withstand repeated.
What are the stages of injection moulding?
The whole injection molding process usual lasts from 2 seconds to 2 minutes. There are four stages in the cycle. These stages are the clamping, injection, cooling and ejection stages.
Why is ABS used in injection moulding?
One of the most commonly used materials in injection molding is ABS: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. ABS is a thermoplastic material known for its high impact resistance and toughness. ABS has a low melting temperature and is also an inexpensive material.
