Injection Moulding

We make it incredibly easy for you to scale your production from prototyping to volume production. With access to UK & International injection moulding facilities, we pride ourselves on ensuring that costs are competitive whilst ensuring quality and lead times are first class.

Plastic Injection Moulding (IM)

Injection Moulding is the process where plastic resin is injected into a cavity (or mould) and set. Injection Moulding is used to produce low, medium to high volume end use plastic parts. Set up costs are usually thousands of pounds but the individual parts are often then only pennies and so can become extremely cost efficient.

Suitable Applications

  • High level of accuracy (Tool possible up to +/- 0.08mm)
  • Low, medium and high volume production parts
  • Extensive range of materials and colours available including recyclable materials
  • Choice of surface finishes
  • Aluminium and Steel Moulds available for lower & higher volume runs
  • Low part costs due to economy of scale
  • Range of finishes
  • Broad range of sector of applications (Consumer, Automotive, etc)
  • Parts produced in less than 15 days

Liquid Silicone Rubber Moulding (LSR)

Liquid Silicone Rubber Moulding (LSR) is a the process where liquid silicone is injected into a cavity (or mould) and set. LSR mouldings provide great thermal, electrical and chemical resistance properties and are often used for medical applications due to being biocompatible. LSR moulding is typically more expensive than IM as steel tools are required to withstand warping from the additional curing temperature heat.

Suitable Applications

  • High level of accuracy (Tool possible up to +/- 0.08mm)
  • Low, medium and high volume production parts
  • Range of silicone based materials available with different properties and hardnesses
  • Choice of surface finishes
  • Low part costs due to economy of scale
  • Broad range of sector of applications (Medical, Automotive etc)
  • Range of finishes
  • Parts produced in less than 15 days
