Industrial Application: Injection Molding Machines

Injection molding is a very common process used for producing plastic, glass or metal parts. This process consists of passing the desired material through a heating and mixing process and injecting it into a mold. Injection molding is used for producing a great variety of plastic parts such as bottles, cases, automotive parts, etc.

A plastic injection molding machine usually has 2 main sections, the Injection unit and the Clamping unit, and the driving system of the machine can be either hydraulic, electrical, or a combination of both (hybrid).
