Plastic injection molding allows large quantities of plastic products and components to be produced in a short time, guaranteeing dimensional repeatability and uniform quality of the pieces, and reducing production costs thanks to the automation of the production process.
It is precisely for these reasons that the molding of plastic materials is one of the most widespread techniques among the transformation processes of plastic materials and has also been chosen by RAIPLAST as its production method.
The widespread diffusion of this technique can be explained by the important advantages that this production process brings.
Let’s discover them together!
- High efficiency and consistent product quality
The injection molding of plastic materials allows the production of large quantities of products with constant characteristics in a relatively short time, thus guaranteeing their quality. This advantage is accompanied by the consequent possibility of reducing production costs, also thanks to the automation of the entire procedure such as the robots that are used by RAIPLAST directly on the line side.
- Customization of product design
The versatility of injection molding also allows us to obtain pieces with complex geometries that can be customized on the basis of the specific needs and requests of the customer.
The experience and expertise of our mould design office also contributes to this advantage which allows RAIPLAST to always be at the cutting edge in responding promptly to customer requests, thanks to the profound knowledge of the entire process, of the properties of the material used and of the great experience gained over the years,
- Choice of colors and materials with the possibility of co-molding different materials
In the injection molding process, a variety of materials can be used to produce the pieces. The color of the product can also be adapted to specific customer requests, thanks to the use of different masters.
RAIPLAST proposes the use of different polymers depending on the intended use and the physical characteristics that the final product must have, guaranteeing the customer a wide possibility of choice and customization.
Among the materials used by RAIPLAST are the following:
– PE (polyethylene)
– ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
– PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride)
– PC (Polycarbonate)
– PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol)
– SAN (Styrene Acrylonitrile)
– PA (Polyamide)
– PEEK (polyether ether ketone)
– PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate)
– Soft and rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
– RUBBER (TPE, TPV, and others) of any type and hardness.
Furthermore, RAIPLAST processes both natural materials and materials filled with various fillers (fiberglass, glass spheres, mineral fillers, etc.) but also with recycled plastic material both obtained from industrial processes and from the treatment of plastic waste coming from the ocean, always having the attention for the environment close to the heart.
- Reduction of production waste
Thanks to the use of high-quality presses, moulds and materials and the experience, competence and attention of our operators, we create products with high quality standards that allow the reduction to a minimum of burrs and imperfections. Consequently, the process result in a reduced number of scraps and lower production costs.
- Ability to adapt to various industrial sectors
As already mentioned, a further advantage of the injection molding technique is versatility. Thanks to the possibility of creating products of various shapes, colors and with different technical characteristics, RAIPLAST has the opportunity to work for different industrial sectors, creating products such as components for household appliances, for heating and cooling systems, toys and accessories for childhood, waste fittings and kitchen accessories (cutting boards, trays) and many others.
