What Are Custom Plastic Injection Molding Services?
This incredibly popular manufacturing process is frequently used to create high volumes of plastic parts for a wide range of different industries. During the molding process, molten plastic is injected into the mold and then clamped down to create a high-pressure environment as the mold sets. The custom injection molding method is ideal for situations where large numbers of identical custom plastic parts are needed in a short span of time.
Due to the immense flexibility that our custom plastic molding process allows, we’re able to enjoy a great degree of design freedom to personalize the product to the unique needs of our clients. While the initial investment cost for a mold can be relatively high, the upfront cost is mitigated by the lower cost-per-part driven by the speed and efficiency of the process. The investment can return particularly large dividends on custom products, as the design freedom enables our custom plastic molding company to quickly mass-produce complex parts.
To summarize, custom injection molding focuses on designing a customized manufacturing process that is efficient, scalable, and leverages leading-edge technologies. Our automated manufacturing cells include robotics and the latest process-monitoring mechanisms to provide a highly efficient, quality-controlled custom manufacturing environment.
At Abtec, our capabilities go far beyond custom plastic molding services — we offer a variety of secondary operations that, when combined with our state-of-the-art custom injection molding, deliver greater value for clients. These secondary services include:

Benefits of Custom Plastic Injection Molding Services
There are numerous reasons to consider choosing injection molding for your project. Some of the most notable advantages include the following:
- Customizability. Your tooling/mold will be custom-built for injection molding. Additionally, parts created this way can be easily colored using additives, creating aesthetically pleasing products.
- Cost-effectiveness. The automation utilized in the injection molding process significantly reduces overhead costs, allowing a sole operator to oversee the molding process.
- Accuracy. With a properly designed mold, the injection molding process can ensure tight tolerance accuracy molding to meet customer demand to print specifications.
- Efficient use of materials. The injection molding process reduces unnecessary plastic waste, as the material is injected directly into the mold during production.
- Easy reclamation and recycling. Any unused material can easily be melted down for reuse.
- Enhanced strength. Plastics have an incredibly high resistance to wear and can be injected with fillers during the molding process to create additional strength.
