Consumer electronics, medical, aerospace, automotive, and many other industries all mass produce plastic by way of injection molding. Plastic and metal injection molding is more affordable than ever before. It can take several days or several weeks to complete one mold set. To create a mold, metal is precision milled to create cavities that act as the negative shape of the final product. Molds can become intricate when designed with multiple cavities, multiple slides, and hot runner technology. The molds require careful installation into the injection molding press with cranes and other heavy duty machinery. An experienced toolmaker designs the injection molds to avoid blisters, burn marks, flow marks, sink marks, and to ensure the overall quality and functionality.
Like the tool making process, the method for injection molding requires years of experience and skills. Plastic pellets are fed into a hopper, pressed and melted into a screw-like ram, injected into the mold, and finally the mold cavity. Parts are ejected from the mold, and then the cycle repeats.
Design for manufacturing (DFM) requires careful consideration to facilitate the manufacturing process. Jaycon can help design your product so that the form best serves its function while saving you time and money.
A STEP file is an universal format that can be read by most (if not all) 3D modeling programs. This file allows Jaycon Systems to understand project requirements and provide accurate quotes for injection molding services. These files do not contain construction history (also known as Design Tree) of a part or object; they only show the final object design. If there is a dimension change to be made to a part or object, Jaycon Systems cannot select that drawing directly and change it. Jaycon Systems can only make recommendations based on engineering assessment. This universal format is a standard and comes in multiple formats, such as .stp, .ste and .step. This format can be achieved by using the export function in the file menu of most 3D modeling programs. When you provide us with your STEP file, we will be able to assess the following:
