Injection moulding is a process to get the product in the desired shape. This process is done by adding molten material into a mould. A number of materials used for this for e.g. metals, glasses, most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers, confection, and elastomers.

After the material is added to the mould, it is allowed to cool and hardens. An engineer or industrial designer then gives design to the product in a desirable way. Industrial moulding is done to make a number of products with complicated shapes.

This process has the following 6 major steps: -

  1. Clamping
  2. Injecting
  3. Dwelling
  4. Cooling
  5. Mould opening
  6. Removal of products
