Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting melted material into a tooling. Injection tooling can be performed with a host of materials mainly including metals, glasses, elastomers, and most commonly thermoplastic resin and thermosetting polymers. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed and injected into a cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity. Once a product is designed, tooling will be made from metal. Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the small components to big body panels of vehicles.
