5 Key Points to Choose Injection Molding Machines

5 Key Points to Choose Injection Molding Machines
Injection molding process is a manufacturing process where molten material is injected into a mold. It requires an injection molding machine, raw materials and a mold. Plastics are one of the materials that are most used in making products that you can see and use every day such as bottle caps, automotive parts, toys, medical appliances, etc which makes this industry a big potential market to be developed and invested on.

According to the analysis report by Straits Research, the global plastic injection molding market size was valued at USD 11,385 million in 2021 and is anticipated to generate USD 15,734 million by 2030. Therefore, there is no doubt that the injection molding industry is worth investing in.

Types of Injection Molding Machines

We can classify injection molding machines by their configurations and movement of the mold, either in horizontal or vertical way. Both types have their pros and cons so the users have to choose well to get the most suitable machine type. In general, Horizontal Injection Molding Machines are the most common type of injection molding machine in the industry and market. They are ideal for cylindrical parts and used for high production while Vertical Injection Molding machines are more precise and ideal for insert molding processes.

So what are the key points to choose an injection molding machine? Here we will share with you 5 key points when it comes to choosing a suitable injection molding machine.

  1. Material Used
  2. First of all, you need to confirm the molded materials you plan to use: will it be single or multiple materials? The type of material(s) used directly links with the characteristics of the final products.

  3. Size of the Final Products
  4. The size of the final products is crucial as it directly dictates the size of the injection molding machines.

  5. Volume of Production
  6. Knowing the volume of production of the machine is essential to make sure the machine can really solve your problems rather than the opposite situation.

  7. Machine Type
  8. Since the development of the industry and technology, we have by far these three types of machines: hydraulic, electric and hybrid. You can choose the most suitable type of machine according to their features and costs.

  9. Automation Ratio
  10. The automation ratio of the machine determines the operation of the production line which has a lot to do with the cost control at the same time.
