FAQs on NDDMold Injection Molding

Injection Molding Solutions Provider - NDDMold

Injection molding is used to produce products for a variety of applications.

The process starts by compounding the pellets to achieve the desired physical properties.

After that, the drying of the pellets will be done. The dried pellets will be then fed into the hopper.

Next, the plastic will be melted in a heated barrel.

After that, injecting the melted materials in the mold cavity will be done. At the same time, they’ll be injected at high pressure.

Now, the cavities will be swiftly filled with the injected plastic.

Afterward, the plastic will be cooled and the machine will fill the barrel again.

When they cool, they will be in solid form.

Shortly after that, the cavity mold will be opened.

The ejector pins will then force the product out of the cavity.

What are Benefits of Injection Molding Over Other Methods?

In contrast with other alternative techniques, the injection molding process has the following advantages:

  • Lower costs
  • Less scrap
  • Can produce products with repeatability, consistency, and accuracy
Is Injection Molding Well-Suited for My Product?

If you require 1000 or more pieces of your products, it is the ideal choice. With injection molding, you can produce huge-volume plastic goods of the highest quality at competitive prices. You will have a cheap cost per piece.

Even so, there’s an initial tooling cost that may be expensive. It depends on the geometry complexity and product size.

Is it Possible to Lower the Tooling Costs?

Yes. It is possible to lower the tooling costs.

The tooling costs differ based on automation, materials, mold cavities, and product geometry.

Below are some of the ways to lower the tooling cost.

Lower Cavitation

Going with lower cavitation will lower the tooling cost. Lower cavitation means you have a smaller cavity mold base and less machining.

Eliminating Secondary Tooling Automation

To create a close and straight-open tool, automated unscrewing processes, collapsible cores, slides, and other secondary tooling automation will be eliminated. That will lead to a lower tooling cost.

What is the Perfect Material for My Product?

There are more or less 100,000 materials or grades suitable for injection molding. To find the material that will suit your business needs and budget, you should know the applications of your products. The questions below might help you find the perfect material.

  • Will the product be exposed to UV light or outdoors?
  • Will the product be exposed to chemicals?
  • What factors does my product need to resist or withstand?

However, NNDMold can help you in finding the material that suits your project.

What Is the Time Frame for Injection Mold Development?

It actually varies based on the product’s complexity and quantity.

For instance, simple molds may be finished in a maximum of 2 weeks. Usually, the normal lead time for simple parts is four to six weeks.

For products with complex geometry, it may take up to 2 months or more for the tool design and tool manufacture.

Do You Provide Additional Services?

Yes, NDDMold offers value-added services such as:

  • Labeling
  • Packaging
  • Manual, semi-automated, and fully-automated assembly
  • Pad printing

  • Food and beverage
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Medical
  • Energy
  • Aerospace
  • Defense and firearms
  • Construction
  • Agriculture
  • Automotive
  • Sports & outdoors
What Information Do You Need for an Injection Molding Project Quote?

Initially, you can fill out the RFQ form. You can also then provide information such as quantity, material requirement, weight, amount of cavities, and other specifications. But you can also send us your product samples, 3D CAD file, or drawing of your product. Then, tell us the application and other detailed descriptions of your product.

What Happens During a New Project's First Process?

To make the product suitable for injection molding, we will first check the product design. Then, we will make any necessary adjustments

After that, we will create the product’s mold. Subsequently, the molds will be used to produce products in the molding press.

How Much is an Injection Molded Product?

There are many factors that influence the product’s price. Factors such as:

  • Size
  • Weight
  • Material
  • Quality requirements
  • Geometry
  • Volume order
  • Whether you prefer fully automated or semi-automated molds

If you need printing services, product assembly, packaging, and other additional services, that will also affect the cost.

What Maintenance Does NDDMold Do for Its Molds?

To expel the component out of the mold, every mold has movable pins. And these pins and other moving parts will be greased regularly. The core surfaces and cavities will also be cleaned.

We are going to take all required measures to maintain the condition of your mold.

Does NDDMold Offer Product Designs?

Usually, the customers provide us with the designs of their products. We also Conceptual Design and Project Review to start the production process and assembly.

Moreover, we can suggest some design changes for enhancements and to save money and production time.

If you want to save time and money in production, we can provide recommendations for your product design.

And if you’re unable to have an existing product design, we may continue to collaborate with you to create it.
