Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from plastic materials and is widely used for a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels for vehicles.

After a plastic product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, injection molds are made by a mold maker (or tool maker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminum, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part.

Plastic is then fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and injected into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the shape of the injection mold.

Plastic Injection Molding Design and Simulation
With the use of plastic parts on the rise in almost every industry, combined with growing pressure to reduce costs and cut time to market, the need for plastic injection molding simulation tools that provide deep insight into the plastic injection molding process has never been greater.

The Autodesk® Simulation family of products delivers a comprehensive set of simulation software tools that are easy to integrate into each phase of the product development process. From mechanical stress, vibration, and motion to computational fluid dynamics, plastic injection molding, and multiphysics, simulation software from Autodesk provides a fast, accurate, and innovative approach to solving your most challenging design problems.

Autodesk is dedicated to providing a wide range of plastic injection molding simulation tools to help CAE analysts, designers, engineers, mold makers, and molding professionals create more accurate digital prototypes and bring better products to market at less cost.
