    & Features

Thin wall Molding is a specialized form of conventional Injection Molding. The Thin Wall Injection Molding process focuses on mass producing plastic parts that are thin and light so that material cost savings can be made and cycle time can be as short as possible. Shorter cycle time means higher productivity and lower costs per part. Caps & Closures and Packaging Industries are few of the targeted application based industries use Thin Wall Moulding.

Benefits

  • Cheap, safe and clean plastic parts.
  • Reduction into resource consumption and cuts weight, reducing fuel usage and carbon emissions in shipping
  • Allows faster cycle time compared with thicker walled plastic parts, reduces delivery lead time and cost per part.
