Injection Molding


Plastification in Plastic Injection Molding Machines

Thermoplastics begin as a solid and are melted into a viscous fluid that allows the material to form into a mold. The process of taking raw solid material into the liquid process for molding is known as plastification. Many of the key properties of the final plastic part depend on the plastification process; if any aspect of the process is compromised, it could have a negative effect on the final outcome, so it is critical to maintain the plastification process to the highest standards. Aline Components is a highly experienced plastic injection molding company, and several methods are used at Aline to ensure the consistency and reliability of the plastification process in all production runs.

Aline works the finest plastic material for its products, with precisely calibrated and predictable material properties. State-of-the-art equipment produces plastic parts with all of the latest features currently available for custom plastic injection molding. These units can be programmed to control the flow rate of heated thermoplastics precisely as the material is transferred into the tooling process. Technicians ensure the supply is uninterrupted and calibrated to the production rate and volume, which changes depending on the type of thermoplastic being used. Plastification heating processes must also maintain optimum thermal homogeneity of the plastic material during the molding process for part uniformity, and must be highly reproducible for multiple runs of identical components. Energy usage must also be optimized for low cost high volume efficiency, and the units must be able to remain cost effective over their entire service life.

Aline Components is one of the leading plastic manufacturing companies in the Tri-State Area, and we have a long list of satisfied clients throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and beyond. Aline can offer high quality custom thermoplastic injection molding services for all stages of the production process, from initial part design and development, tooling design, and prototyping, to rapid production of high quality plastic parts. Whatever the size and scope of the job, Aline Components can make it happen. Contact us today to learn more.
