INJECTION MOULDING / VACCUM FORMING / SECURITY SEALS
The key to Injection Moulding does not necessarily lie in the size and complexity of the machines but by the team of highly experienced people who work on it. That would be Dye-Setters, Process-Workers and Supervisors and Quality Control personnel backed up by a team of Electricians, Mechanics, Maintenance Engineers and of-course our Toolroom.
Also most of our machines are fitted with hopper-loaders and dryers, master-batch feeders, dehumidifiers and conveyers.
Vaccuum Forming is an integral part of packing finished assembled goods or items sent overseas for assembly with other products. Our products are mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry, toy industry and packing electrical components.
Precision Machines For A Premium Product
We have high precision injection moulding machines which include 180, 260, 380, 880 tons over 18 machines, all available to create the unique products you need. Having this kind of equipment enables us to complete every client request without fail.
Injection Moulding Offers Many Advantages
The principal advantage of injection moulding is the ability to scale production en masse. Once the initial costs have been paid, the price per unit during injection moulded manufacturing is extremely low. The price also tends to drop drastically as more parts are produced.
Additionally, injection moulding produces low scrap rates relative to traditional manufacturing processes like CNC machining which cut away substantial percentages of an original plastic block or sheet. This however can be a negative relative to additive manufacturing processes like 3D printing that have even lower scrap rates.
Waste plastic from injection moulding manufacturing typically comes from four areas: the sprue, the runners, the gate locations, and any overflow material that leaks out of the part cavity itself.
A Consistent Outcome Every Time
Injection moulding is known for ensuring consistency and reliability throughout the manufacturing process. This is a wonderful characteristic when trying to produce brand consistency and part reliability in high volume production. It’s what the team at G. Rebello Engineering do best.
Things To Consider With Injection Moulding
Up front costs can be high due to design, testing, and tooling requirements. If you are going to produce parts in high volumes, you want to make sure you get the design right the first time. This can be more complicated than you might think. Getting your design right includes:
- Designing and then prototyping the part itself to specification.
- Initial prototype development is typically completed on a 3D printer and often in a different material (such as ABS plastic) than the final part will be constructed in.
- Designing an injection mould tool for an initial production round.
- Typically generating 300-1000 injection moulded prototypes in the production material requires the development of an injection mould tool.
- Refining any and all details in the injection mould tool prior to mass-production in an injection mould manufacturing plant.
Is Injection Moulding Right For You?
Before you decide to produce a part via injection moulding, consider a few of the following details:
- Entry Cost: Preparing a product for injection moulded manufacturing requires a large initial investment. Make sure you understand this crucial point up front.
- Part Design: You will want to design the part from day one with injection moulding in mind. Simplifying geometry and minimizing the number of parts early on will pay dividends down the road.
- Tool Design: Make sure to design the mould tool to prevent defects during production.
- Cycle Time: Minimize cycle time in as much as it is possible. Small changes can make a big difference and cutting a few seconds from your cycle time can translate into big savings when you’re producing millions of parts.
- Assembly: Design your part to minimize assembly.
