Other manufacturing services
With CNC turning, it can manipulate the material into its desired shape using cutting tools with great accuracy and consistency. Depending on the material’s thickness or the design’s complexity, we use different-sized tools.
Swiss CNC machining is a highly precise machine that produces complex parts with tight tolerances. The Swiss CNC machine can handle multiple-axis movements that allow complex profiles to be cut accurately and quickly – typically in one operation.
Wire EDM erodes extremely hard metals, allowing for delicate and intricate designs to be etched into the material. It does not distort or warp the workpiece, so it is ideal for precision applications such as aerospace components, medical device parts, and injection molds.
Injection Molding FAQs
What is Injection molding?
Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing plastic parts from thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials.
It involves melting the material and injecting it into a mold cavity, where it cools and hardens to the shape of the mold.
The plastic injection molding process is used to make a variety of plastic products, such as toys, automotive parts, and medical devices.
Injection molded parts are characterized by their tight tolerances, superior surface finishes and complex shapes.
Advantages Of Plastic Injection Molding
There are a few advantages of plastic injection molding that you should know about.
First, plastic injection molding is a fast and cost-effective way of manufacturing large volumes of parts. This process is highly accurate, which allows for parts with intricate design features like undercuts, inserts, and ribs.
Plastic injection molding also has a low tooling cost, which means that it’s suitable for prototyping and production runs.
Further, plastic injection molding is lightweight and durable, making it ideal for parts that require high-quality but lightweight materials.
In addition, plastic injection molding parts are often easier to repair or replace than those made using other manufacturing methods.
What are the applications of injection molded parts?
Injection molded parts can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Automotive components such as brake calipers, steering gear assemblies, and door handles are all produced using injection molding.
This manufacturing technique is also widely employed in the production of electronic devices such as tablets and mobile phones.
Additionally, injection-molded plastic is often suitable for the manufacture of medical supplies like syringes and needles.
How much does it cost to injection mold something?
The cost of injection molding can vary depending on the part’s complexity, the material used, and the quantity needed.
However, a ballpark figure for plastic injection molding would be between $500 and $2,000. In fact, simple parts like plastic trays ornaments can be produced for under $500, while more complex parts with intricate detailing can cost upwards of $10,000 or more.
Always do your research before injection molding something as costs can vary widely from one part to another. Also, keep in mind tooling costs and lead times to get an idea of how much everything will cost in total.
Is injection molding cheaper than CNC?
Injection molding is typically cheaper than CNC for high-volume production runs. This is because injection molding machines are less expensive to purchase and operate, and they can produce parts in high quantities more quickly than CNC machining machines.
Additionally, injection molding tends to be more cost effective when producing large quantities of a product.
On the other hand, CNC machining may be more cost effective when producing low-volume parts with precision requirements. It depends on the part’s complexity and the precision required.

What are the tolerances for injection molded parts?
Tight tolerances may restrict deviation from 0.005 inches or less for very precise parts.
Looser tolerances may allow for up to 0.010 inches of variation depending on the application and material being used.
