How We Avoid Common Defects in Plastic Injection Moulding

When it comes to manufacturing quality plastic injection moulded products, we are experts in our field. From the smallest, intricate part to large, mass-produced plastic moulded projects, we have experience and skills to perfect your products. When it comes to plastic injection moulding, there will always be risks of defects in the finished product. Here are just some of the ways we avoid defects in our plastic injection moulding of products using high-tech machinery and skills to create your perfect product.

Avoiding Air Pockets and Vacuum Voids During the Plastic Injection Moulding Process

When creating bespoke products using plastic injection moulding, it is extremely important to avoid the creation of air pockets during the process. This can inadvertently distort the shape and use of the finished product. As experts in our field, we have a number of processes in place to avoid this in our plastics mould manufacturing process. We also have high-tech machinery to optimise the process and ensure adequate moulding pressure forces any excess air out of the moulding cavity. Our high-tech plastic injection moulding machinery also ensures premature cooling does not happen, another cause of air pockets in the moulding process.

Preventing Burn Marks in Our Plastic Injection Moulding Process

In some cases when creating plastic injection moulded products, burning can appear. In many cases, this can be due to air or even resin becoming trapped in an air cavity and overheating. This then results in the scorched material. Here at Fern Plastics, our skilled team members loosely monitor the temperature of our plastic injection mouldings and the speed of our injection mouldings to ensure this doesn’t happen to our products. We take pride in ensuring each of the products that leave us are fit for purpose and look visually as expected.

Avoiding Plastic Injection Mould Warping

As with any materials, when treating plastics and using them during the plastic injection moulding process, there is a risk of warping the materials. This happening has a range of side effects including excessive space produced between components and misshaped products. Warping as an effect of the injection moulding process can be caused during the cooling process when uneven shrinkage can put stress on different parts of the plastic product. We combat this through strategic selection of materials and expert mould design to avoid this. We also ensure an even and gradual cooling process to avoid warping of the plastic injection moulded product.

Jetting During the Plastic Moulding Process

In order to create a smooth, streamlined plastic injection moulding without any jetting, it is important to use the perfect injection pressure for your product to avoid initial streams solidifying before the product is finished. We have years of experience perfecting the plastic injection moulding process so make it our priority to provide an exceptional product and service each and every time. Our innovative machinery calculates the exact pressure needed for every moulding whilst our mould designs optimise for a smooth finish.

Our experienced and highly trained team are fully equipped to deal with the nuances of plastic injection moulding to ensure an industry-leading product each and every time.
