Rapid Injection Molding Advantages, Uses, Tip.

Sometimes you need prototypes in the “real” production materials or low/mid volumes of parts where production tooling doesn’t make sense. You might have a tight deadline to meet or need to quickly market test a new product iteration. At HLH our rapid injection molding solutions offer fast, high-quality parts from real materials.

How It Works

Depending on your project requirements HLH build molds from either aluminium or steel. We utilise standard mold bases and if possible simplify the tool design to keep costs and lead times to a minimum. Ultimately what we offer is a flexible, tailored solution to realise real injection molded parts in rapid lead times.

Rapid Injection Molding Tips

All projects and manufacturing processes come with their own challenges and guidelines for success. For rapid injection molding there are a number of things you can do to reduce the cost and lead time.

Surface finish is one.

The less processing we need to do to the tool to achieve your desired surface finish the quicker and cheaper it will be. We suggest an SPI Finish B-1 — 600 Grit Paper as far as possible.
