Known as a versatile and economical material, plastic can be used in a variety of applications. Of all the available plastic processing methods, thermoplastic injection molding is the most widely used among the broadest spectrum of markets. Since 1965, we have maintained a leadership position by offering superior plastic injection molding services to customers based nationally and regionally in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland. At Aline, simple to complex geometries are possible and limited only to the mold manufacturability. Tooling may be expensive, but cost-per-part remains low.
To minimize sinking, warping, residual stresses, and improve mold fill and cycle time, we use uniform wall thickness.
To achieve a minimum of one material thickness at the inside corner radius, we allow a generous radius at all corners.
To ensure rapid cooling, short cycles times, and minimum shot weight, we utilize the least thickness compliant with the process, thermoplastic material, or product design requirements.
To facilitate easy withdrawal from the mold, we design parts that feature a draft (taper) in the direction of mold opening or closing.
To improve part stiffness in bending, we use ribs or gussets.
