Highly efficient, net shape polymer injection molding process includes the following:

  • Formulation, compounding, and extrusion of polymer pellets
  • Drying, then melting of the polymer pellets
  • Shear and compression of the injection molding machine screw to liquefy the polymer at high pressure
  • Injection of molten polymer at high pressure (5,000-20,000 PSI) into mold tooling
  • Cooling and ejection of molded polymer components
