The future of plastic injection molding

2017/10/16

While the improvements in the plastic injection machinery continue, the future of plastic injection molding is now turning its attention to the molds and mold components. High tech plastic molds can be made of metal, epoxy or carbon fiber and can increase output through faster cooling times and cycle times.


The invention of 3D printing gives us a glimpse of how far plastic injection molding can travel into the future. 3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. With the integration of 3D printing in the plastic injection molding process, concepts and samples can be produced with far less expense.


Some innovative minds have even been working with corn seed producers to replace traditional petroleum based plastic into corn starch based plastic. l Biodegradable material is currently being used on a limited scale and there are many uses this material  could soon have that would astound the mind. All it would take would be the mold and the material to produce a new wave of the future for plastics engineering. Scientist are still researching polymers the way they did when plastic injection molding began and their research is unbelievable at this point with many possibilities to come.
