How do I know which plastics manufacturing process to use to turn my idea into a product?
We are often asked, “how do I know which plastics manufacturing process to use to turn my idea into a product?”
There can be multiple options but usually only one is best.
API offers two plastics manufacturing processes: rotational molding and injection molding.
What’s the difference?
Rotational molding tends to have these characteristics:
Lower volume runs
Longer cycle times
Cheaper mold costs
Higher part prices
Limited material selection
Injection molding characteristics include:
High volume runs
Short cycle times
Higher mold costs
Cheaper part prices
Diverse material selection
