Injection molded cases have many good qualities.

The various processes of molding custom cases all have certain things in common. However, the differences generally come into play when it’s time to get the material into the cavity, to take on the shape of the final product. When it comes to injection molded cases, the thermoplastic is forced into the cavity under pressure. Read on the learn more about the benefits of injection molded cases.

Injection Molded Cases: Learn the Benefits

Friday, September 25th, 2015

benefits of injection molded casesInjection molded cases are cost effective plastic cases that are made from many types of plastic. The plastic is poured into a heated barrel and then set to cool and take the shape of the case mold. The mold may be difficult or costly to make, but the actual production is very cost effective. Injection molds are used to make cases for musical instruments, weapons, cell phones, pill cases, plastic bottles, toys, shipping, and much more.

Plastic cases made from an injection mold are very durable, depending on the type of plastic used for the job. They can be very heavy and durable and/or lightweight as needed.

An injection mold ensures that the end product takes the shape of the case mold and can include molded in features such as hinges and latches. This means that your end product will have the hinges and latches present in the case mold, which will reduce the amount of manpower required for manual labor. This helps keep these cases cost effective!

When making these cases, there are very few scrap materials leftover. Materials are used to fit into the molds and leftover plastics are poured into the next molds. This is another way that these products remain cost-effective. These plastics are so durable that they can withstand repeated high tolerances to temperature and physical stressors.

The Benefits of Injection Molded Cases

benefits of injection molded cases
When it comes to developing a high quality product at a price that customers can afford, Packaging Strategies Incorporated exceeds all expectations. One of the ways PSI has been able to produce quality custom cases for the Baltimore area is through injection molded cases. While this method of case production may not seem beneficial, it actually holds several benefits for both the consumer and producer. Some benefits of using injection molded cases include:

1. Production can be made quickly, putting the product in the hand of the consumer quicker.
2. Customization is easier with the option to add fillers and inserts.
3. Hinges and locks can also be added during the production process.
4. Waste is almost non-existent. Any scrap material can be grounded down to be reused.
5. Post production is normally unnecessary, cutting labor cost.
6. Different types of material can be used during the process at the same time.

Materials that can be used are broken down into three different categories of polymers:

1. Thermoplastics- Polystyrene, nylon, polyethylene
2. Thermosets- Phenolic, Epoxy
3. Elastomers

The process to make the injection molded cases can be broken down into four different “times”. These times are as follows:

1. Fill Time- The time it takes for air to be removed from the mold cavity.
2. Pack Time- The time it takes to fill the mold with the material of choice.
3. Cool Time- The time it takes for the material to cool or set.
4. Dead Time- The time it takes for the part to be removed from the mold and the mold to be reset.

PSI strives to create a durable product for our consumers that will not only meet their casing needs, but exceed their expectations. PSI has been serving the Baltimore area for over 50 years and continues to lead the area in the custom cases and shipping cases industry.

What Are The Benefits of Injection Molded Cases?

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

At Packaging Strategies Inc., our clientele range from commercial and private companies to the U.S. military and government agencies. This is why we offer several different types of protective cases – including rotationally molded cases, injection molded cases, metal containers, and more – to help meet the unique needs of these organizations.

This week, we are going to focus on the Benefits of Injection Molded Cases.

Injection molding process for producing cases involves feeding plastic material into a heated barrel, mixing it, and forcing it into a mold cavity where it eventually cools and hardens to the configurations of the protective case. This process is beneficial in several ways, including:

  • Finished products with greater dimensional stability
  • Molded in features such as hinges and latches
  • Increased production rates
  • Repeatable high tolerances
  • Ability to use a wide variety of materials
  • Low labor costs
  • Minimal scrap losses
  • Little parts finishing after molding
