Water Injection Molding

In addition to plastic injection molding, we also offer molding by water injection. This technique provides an interesting way to mold hollow or partially hollow parts and is similar to gas injection molding in that it cores out large sections. However, the advantage of water injection molding is its ability to cool directly inside the part, saving time. Other benefits include a reduction in part weight and warp, added strength to the part’s design, and a smoother inner wall, among others.
