What Is Plastic Injection Molding?
Plastic injection molding is a process by which we melt down small plastic pellets into a liquid form; this liquid is then compressed into the empty cavity of the mold tool. Once this process is finished, the now solidified plastic part will retain the shape of the mold as well as its surface texture. This process is then repeated again and again until the order has been fulfilled; delivering durable well shaped and colored plastic parts time after time. The molding cycle can last between a few seconds, to a couple of minutes depending on the materials used, size, shape, and complexity of the design. At HLH we combine state of the art equipment with a wide range of experts, to provide outstanding plastic injection molding services: contact our friendly team to see what we can bring to your manufacturing process.

Aluminum tools are the quickest, easiest and cheapest to make, making them perfect for low-manufacturing volumes. However, the drawback of this is that they are often not as durable when dealing with larger quantities or tougher materials. Thus at HLH we recommend them to smaller companies or companies that want to make a limited run of a certain product. Contact us to see whether Aluminum tooling is the right solution for your manufacturing needs.
Steel tools are more durable than aluminum ones, but they do take slightly longer to produce. They are ideal for big manufacturing orders or when manufacturing tougher more abrasive or corrosive plastics. At HLH, we generally recommend using steel tools for orders of over 100,000 parts; however, this advice can alter depending on your project: so contact our friendly team of experts for more information on how we can help you specifically.
Fully hardened steel tools are by far and away the most durable and can be used for production volumes that run into the millions. At HLH we have many different service options designed to make sure that you get the right parts at the right time. So contact our friendly team today for a bespoke service, which it tailored to fit your needs.
HLH offers a wide variety of polymers for you manufacturing needs including thermoforming plastics, thermosets, and elastomers. Our expert team will ensure that everything is molded to your exact specifications, ensuring that we produce the highest possible quality of finished parts. Thermoforming plastics tend to be softer and more flexible, which means they can be easily recycled. This also makes them perfect for a wide range of different projects. Whereas thermosetting plastics are generally more rigid and durable, this means that they are more expensive and more difficult to recycle. Whichever material you decide to use, our friendly team of experts is ready to help you through the process: so contact HLH today and give yourself the competitive edge that you need.
