- Gas Assisted Injection Molding is a process where nitrogen gas is injected during the molding cycle, either through the sprue or directly into the mold tool. At a controlled high pressure, this has the benefit of overcoming sink marks or introducing a cavity without the requirement of a core.
In-Mold Assembly (IMA):
- Allows a metal insert to be embedded in a molded part during a single operation leading to improved product structure and increased strength.
- A process to manufacture solid parts which do not have any hollow cavities.
- Two shot injection molding is the ability to produce complex moldings from two different polymers at the same time during one machine cycle. This has the benefit of creating moldings with more than one color, or with different materials combined in single molding process.
