You’re done with 3D printing or CNC prototyping, and you’re ready to begin manufacturing — this is where you take the next step and begin the injection molding process.
The process of mass manufacturing your product through injection molding starts with two steel or aluminum blocks, which are precision milled through CNC to create cavities that act as the negative shape of the product. After that’s done, plastic pellets are fed into the injection molding press, where the pellets flow through the rotating screw like ram, then compressed through the nozzle, and finally into the injection mold where it fills the vacant cavities and forms into a real part.
Injection molding is now more affordable than ever before, and Jaycon works with you to make your runs economical. If your run is up to 1,000 to 2,000 pieces, Jaycon is able to save you time and money by working with aluminum. However, if you require over 50,000 pieces, Jaycon may be able to amortize your steel mold cost into the part cost.
Jaycon is able to produce both the mold tooling and your plastic parts either offshore, in China or domestically in the USA.
Additionally, our engineers will work hard to save you thousands of dollars by applying DFM practices to your project, where they optimize your design to ensure no extra material and equipment is needed in order to produce your part. We take into consideration things such as wall thickness, draft angles, shelling, support ribs, and more.

A STEP file is a 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:
