Sep 24, 2020

Freeform Polymers is proud to offer plastic injection molding for companies or entrepreneurs designing, prototyping, and assembling products. Our team of experts compiled a list of five major advantages to using plastic injection molding during the manufacturing process.

Fast / Efficient

When it comes to the plastic injection molding process, it is actually very efficient. Because of the time saved more parts can be manufactured from a single mold. It is not uncommon for plastic injection molds to have faster cycle times and product more consistently quality parts. The plastic is re-used so the entire injection process produces very little waste.

Lower Labor Costs

Compared to other molding types, plastic injection molding produces relatively lower labor costs. When you can produce a high volume of parts very quickly without losing quality you reduce your labor costs.

Complex Designs

The best part of injection molding is the ability to make thousands of quality identical parts that can actually be very complex. Our team at Freeform Polymers will help your design maximize the high-volume molding efficiently.

Save Money

Because the plastic injection molding produces parts with a more “finished” look there can be very little work post production. Not to mention having a major step like this automated reduces manufacturing costs. Automating this process also allows for more precise parts being created.


One benefit for using plastic injection molding is the flexibility in color. With so many different color options, your product is sure to come out just how you want it to.
