The Injection Molding Process and Injection Molded Cases

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Packaging Strategies Inc. (PSI) specializes in the manufacturing systems integration packages and custom case solutions, including rotationally molded, metal, and injection molded cases. Each type of case is custom designed to meet your unique needs. But which type of case is best for you and your equipment?

Benefits of Injection Molded Cases

First of all, let’s talk about the injection molding process. It involves feeding plastic into a heated barrel, mixing it, and pouring it into a mold. The plastic eventually cools and hardens to the specified configurations.

The injection molding process is beneficial for several reasons, including:

  • Durability: The injection molding process produces a case with greater dimensional stability than its counterparts.
  • Molded In Features: Unlike other types of cases, features, such as hinges and latches, are actually molded into the case. This leads to little parts finishing after the injection molding process.
  • Production: Injection molding is a cost-effective and efficient production process. Resulting in increased production rates, repeatable high tolerances, minimal scrap losses, and low labor costs.

Having the right container for your equipment is just as important as the equipment itself. So don’t settle for stock shipping solutions. After all, we do not live in a “one size fits all” world. Specialized equipment and delicate instruments come in all shapes and size and need protective shipping cases built specifically for them. This is where PSI can help.

Roto-molded cases are created using a unique process which uses a heated mold to melt thermoplastic before rotating it fit the outside of the metal mold.

Unfortunately, there is no one answer. The only way to truly know what protective case makes the most sense for you, your equipment, and your budget is to educate yourself on the benefits of each type of case. Then, once you have all of the facts, you can make a better, more informed decision.
