The Plastic Moulding Processes

Injection moulding ⬈

The most popular manufacturing process for producing a large quantity of the same plastic part. Plastic granules, usually in a liquid state, are heated up and injected under pressure into a mould cavity. 

Rotational moulding ⬈

Rotional moulding is when a material charge or shot weight is placed inside a heated hollow mould, which is then slowly rotated (usually around two perpendicular axes). As the material softens, it spreads and adheres to the mould’s walls.

Plastic extrusion ⬈

A large quantity of plastic is manufactured using an extrusion process, in which a polymer material is melted and formed continuously. Extrusion produces items such as pipe/tubing, weatherstripping, fencing, deck railings, window frames, plastic films and sheeting, thermoplastic coatings, and wire insulation.

Blow moulding ⬈

Inflating or blowing a molten thermoplastic tube into the shape of a mould cavity creates a hollow object via blow moulding. This is most commonly used in the food industry to produce plastic bottles.

Compression moulding ⬈

This process involves compressing materials under high pressure to form a desired shape. It is widely used in the manufacturing of plastic products. However, with the advent of new technologies and the increasing demand for metals, it is also being employed for metals, especially low carbon steels.

What Is The Best Process For My Product?

Selecting the right moulding process for your product can reduce your costs and increase your profits. Dragon Metal’s team of plastic moulding experts will help you decide which process is best for your product. We can also help you decide on the most suitable material for your product based on its properties and other factors such as post-processing techniques and coating. We offer a number of common plastic resins but are happy to source other material in China, Asia or even locally based on your project’s requirements.

Whether you are looking for a quick turnaround, low-cost manufacturing, or high quality, we can find a moulding partner for you.
