Plastic Injection Molding
Plastic Injection Molding, From Concept to Commercialization
Plastic injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing thermoplastic and thermosetting polymer materials. You may use plastic injection molding to manufacture a variety of defense market parts, from mirco-sized components to complete devices.
When you partner with Phillips-Medisize, you align with a world-class, ITAR-compliant provider of defense plastic injection molding services that follow strict MIL-STDs. Our defense plastic injection molding capabilities include multi shot (two-, three-, and four-shot) injection molding, insert molding, overmolding, and micromolding. Micromolding, specifically, offers you a large material selection, as well as the capability to miniaturize devices for lighter-weight components that are critical to defense-related products. You may also take advantage of our multi-shot and multi-shot liquid silicone rubber (MS LSR) plastic injection molding capabilities.
In collaboration with you, our expert defense manufacturing team can help you design moldable parts that are optimized for manufacture. These upfront investments in your program can help you reduce overall program costs, while increasing your product speed to market.
Phillips-Medisize is a total solutions provider that integrates design, engineering, and manufacturing resources upfront during the concept phase. Phillips-Medisize also offers functional and durability testing services. From concept to commercialization, your plastic injection molding program is in expert hands with Phillips-Medisize. You’ll find we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your program objectives on time and within your budget.
Plastic Injection Molding Advantages
The plastic injection molding process is ideal for producing low to high volumes of the same component. Some of the many advantages of plastic injection molding include:
- High Production Rates, Lower Labor Costs
- Repeatable Tight Tolerances
- Accommodation of a Wide Range of Materials: Includes engineering-grade resins to increase structural integrity/durability of defense-related products
- Minimal Scrap Loss and Finishing Required
- In-mold Assembly Tooling Design: May reduce secondary operations costs
- Platable and Non-platable Technologies: Performed with multi-shot injection molding, you can achieve integrated circuitry for lighter-weight designs, fewer components, and less assembly required
- Soft-touch Material: To accommodate ergonomic designs of handheld devices used by troops in the field
