plastic injection moulding process

Plastic Injection Moulding

Boy and Biraghi Plastic Injection Moulding Machines

Goodbrand Plastics Plastic Injection Moulding facilities utilise a range of Boy and Biraghi, plastic injection moulding machines with sizes varying from 22 tonnes up to 150 tonnes, some of which are integrated with CNC robots.

Injection Moulding Raw Material Conveyance

In addition, each plastic injection moulding machine is equipped with its own hopper loader for material conveyance. A range of conveyors fitted to the relevant machines will collect the parts and transfer them to their allocated area or packaging medium.

Plastic Injection Moulder Tool Heaters

As and when required, tool heaters will be used to produce a quality, aesthetically pleasing product.

Hygroscopic Plastics

hygroscopic plasticsWith some plastics being hygroscopic, pre-drying of the raw materials prior to the processing is paramount. We have a range of dryers designed to remove the surplus moisture from the granules.

If this is not done, or done incorrectly, the surface finish of the product will be impaired but more importantly the strength of the product will be severely compromised.

Once mouldings have been manufactured from correctly dried material, they must be allowed enough time to re-absorb the moisture back. Until the moisture has been put back, the part will be extremely brittle and unsuitable for testing, assembly, turning etc. This is just one instance of having knowledge and experience when dealing with a variety of plastics and processing conditions.

Plastic Injection Moulding Component and Tool Design

plastic injection moulding components and toolsComponent design, injection moulding tool design and manufacture are achieved using our approved suppliers who we have forged a close working alliance with. Tooling may be manufactured in either the UK or the Far East dependant upon your preference.

Secondary Operations

assembly and sub assembly of plastic injection moulding products

Although plastic injection moulding is our main activity, we are flexible enough to offer secondary operations such as assembly or sub assembly which cuts down on handling operations of parts. In addition we can provide pad printing where required.

ISO 9001:2015 is now standard at Goodbrand

Goodbrand Plastics are pleased to announce the successful achievement of the coveted ISO 9001:2015 Certification in June 2017.

This is the latest version of the internationally recognised quality management system, reflecting the new developments made since the introduction of the ISO 9000:2000 system over a decade ago. For customers it offers a level of confidence that processes and systems throughout the operations, have been externally validated and it reduces the costs of ensuring supplier compliance with their own quality systems.

At Goodbrand Plastics we recognise that it is not enough to simply get the first sample right, and our ISO 9001:2017 processes are designed to make sure that we achieve consistent quality every time we produce your product.
