Injection Molding

Injection molding is one of the many manufacturing processes inventors must consider to make their prototype a mass-produced reality. Injection molding is used to create individual pieces, helping to bring uniformity and quickness to the overall creation of a product. Injection molding is a fairly simple process that can create some fairly complex pieces. Injection molding features heated, liquefied plastics and a mold. The mold is filled with the liquid and quickly dries, creating a uniform piece for the inventor’s product.

Extrusion

Extrusion is a simple process that is used in nearly every product or prototype that has specific shape needs. The extrusion process itself is simple, the plastic is melted down and formed into the specific shaped required for the prototype. The plastic is pressed through a die, extruding out into the desired shape. There are multiple materials that can benefit from the extrusion process. Materials related to prototypes include ceramics, metals and plastics. These materials can all be used in various prototypes.

Electronic Product Design

The process of creating any prototype or product is time-consuming, requiring heavy amounts of research and design. This process is amplified and intensified for those who are creating an electronic product. Those who are looking to create an electronic product must take their time as they create their electronic product design.

The Art of Packaging Design

Packaging design is one of the most important aspects for individuals and companies to consider as they try to push their prototypes out into the mass market. Packaging design carries multiple functions that will affect whether or not a product is successful. Those who are working to push their products should make sure that they focus on each aspect of packaging design.

Rotational Molding

Prototypes need to utilize the best processes possible for their parts. They need to provide strength and also stay lightweight and cost-effective. One of the processes that can help provide these characteristics is rotational molding. Rotational molding is often the molding process of choice for those who want to add plastic pieces to their prototypes. There are multiple benefits to be had by rotational molding and the process that creates these plastic pieces for a prototype.
