Injection Molding Process & Applications:
Universal Plastics has seventeen injection molding machines with press tonnages ranging from 85 to 1,500 tons. We specialize in large multi-part projects and are valued by OEM customers for our large project design and integration services. We process a full range of engineered polymers and specializes in short run production quantities. We offer the following processes:
- Injection Molding: accomplished by forming molten plastic under pressure into a cavity formed between two matched metal mold halves. Once the plastic cools, the mold is opened and the parts are removed. Used for a wide variety of end-use applications such as medical device panels, diagnostic equipment covers, industrial and commercial equipment. etc.
- Structural Foam: structural foam molding is a low pressure injection molding process that is capable of producing very large, sturdy parts and structural components.
- Gas Assist Injection Molding: by injecting a controlled stream of gas (nitrogen or carbon dioxide) into the mold, thick walls are created with hollow sections that save on material, shorten cycle time, and reduce the pressure required to mold the large plastic parts with complex designs and attractive surface finishes. The process is especially ideal for large handles, equipment covers, doors, bezels, cabinets and skins.
