A History of Durability, Part II: Injection Molding and Packaging Solutions
Two weeks ago on API’s blog, we provided a rundown on the development and uses of rotational molding in A History of Durability: Rotational Molding and Packaging Solutions. Here at Advanced Packaging, Inc. however, we aren’t limited with the type of custom fabricated carrying cases we provide: in addition to roto-molded cases, we also offer a line of injection molded transit cases.
Heavy duty, rugged, and waterproof, API’s injection molded cases are reliable compact solutions for all kinds of sensitive equipment. Proven to deliver impact resistance even in low temperatures, injection molded cases are airtight, watertight, dent resistant, shatter resistant, lockable, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Injection molding is a manufacturing process that produces parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. The procedure involves feeding material into a heated barrel where it is mixed and then forced into a mold cavity to cool and take the shape of the cavity. A mold is then made from metal, which is precision-machined in order to create the characteristics of the desired part – in API’s case, custom cases.
Though the process of molding plastics has been around since the mid-1800s, the plastic injection molding industry rapidly expanded with the onset of WWII, which increased the demand for inexpensive, mass-produced products necessary for the war effort. Today, injection molding is used for anything from making bottle caps to automotive dashboards and of course, packaging.
