Injection molding is used to produce several everyday items such as toothbrushes or small plastic toys. Many medical devices, including valves and syringes, are manufactured using injection molding as well.
The plastic is melted in the injection molding machine and then injected into the mold, where it cools and solidifies into the final part. Injection molding is used to produce thin-walled plastic parts for a wide variety of applications, one of the most common being plastic housings. These housings are used in a variety of products including household appliances, consumer electronics, power tools, and as automotive dashboards.
