Plastic Injection Mold Process

Thursday, September 27, 2018

This is a plastic injection mold in process at our shop and this particular mold makes a ‘male cleat’. Lowrance Machine (a moldmaker) primarily sells products to companies that are in the rubber and plastics industries.

Molding is the process of manufacturing by shaping liquid or pliable raw material using a rigid frame called a mold. Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component like this male cleat, to entire body panels of cars.
