Plastic injection molding is just one plastic fabrication method that can take your ideas from concept to reality. To form a plastic part, resin or other plastic materials are fed into a hopper where they’re heated until liquefication. Then the plastic is injected into a metal mold, where it cools and is ejected for quality control and inspection. After this, the plastic parts are used to make metal molds and are machined to fit perfectly. At D&D Plastics, plastic injection molding products can be produced in about two weeks for $500, or in a week for $800. Here are some of the top advantages of using plastic injection molding for your plastic product fabrication in Utah—reach out to your plastic... View Article
