Steps in the Injection Moulding Process.
Injection moulding is used for manufacturing a wide variety of parts, from small components like screw caps to large components like truck body panels. Once a component is designed, a mould is made and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. The injection moulding takes place when a molten plastic material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into the metal mould cavity where it cools and hardens before being removed.
