About the Process
Injection molding is ideal for end-use parts manufactured at mid to high volumes (100 - 500,000+ units).
For rapid design molds, customers can receive T1 samples off a steel tool in as fast as 10 business days. Customers own the core and cavity inserts and we use factory-owned, interchangeable mold base inserts.
For production tooling, we produce stand-alone tools, ultimately owned by the customer. P20, H13, S7, NAK80, and SS420 insert steel is available as well as family & multi-cavity tools.
Shapefy also offers specialized processes including insert molding (substrate tool + overmold tool), overmolding (rigid + elastomer, dual barrel machines), and compression molding.
Additives and fibersShapefy offers additives and reinforcements as options for your plastics parts.
Surface FinishInjection molded parts are not usually post-processed, but the mold itself can be finished to affect the surface finish of the molded part.
This way aesthetic needs or technical requirements can be achieved.
