Injection Molding Houston Texas

We love manufacturing and believe it reflects the God-given characteristics of creativity, ingenuity, teamwork, and the application of man’s greatest gifts and talents.  Our customers are small to middle market manufacturers that desire a strong engineering partner to assist in the design, engineering, tooling, and manufacturing of plastic components.  We believe that custom injection molding is a service to our customers that requires close communication and collaboration.  To be the biggest company is not our goal, but to find pleasure in the business of custom injection molding by personally knowing every customer, employee, and vendor and to create great value manufacturing useful products for and with people we enjoy.  

Texas Injection Molding provides injection molding manufacturing services to a wide range of industries and applications.

Texas Injection Molding supports customer applications with engineering support, complete in-house tooling resources, and technical process engineering for the development of molding processes.

What is plastic injection molding?

Injection molding is the most commonly used manufacturing process for making plastic parts. Injection molding can be completed with a host of materials, most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers.

Injection molding requires an injection molding machine, plastic raw material, and an injection mold. The raw plastic material is melted in the injection unit and then “shot”/injected rapidly into the mold under high pressure.  The plastic material is cooled by circulating water through the mold to transfer and remove the heat from the steel mold, part solidifies as cooled, the mold opens and the part is ejected from the cavity of the mold.  The entire process or “cycle” is completed in seconds and then repeated.  

The key steps in injection molding:

  • Clamping: The mold’s two sides are sealed shut under hydraulic pressure. 
  • Screw Recovery: Plastic material is fed into the barrel and conveyed via rotating screw down the barrel toward the front of the screw.  As the material is conveyed it is heated to the specified melt temperature creating the “shot” or volume of material to be injected. 
  • Injection: Screw is pushed forward injecting the material under very high pressure into the mold. 
  • Cooling: Water circulated through channels in the mold to remove heat and solidifies the molded part.
  • Ejection: The clamp releases, mold opens and part is ejected from the mold.

Benefits of plastic injection molding

Plastic injection molding is ideal for producing high volumes of the same object.

  • Parts can have complex geometries
  • Highly efficient and repeatable manufacturing processes
  • Automation means lower costs
  • Variety of material choices can be used
