Our injection moulding services include assembly of components, labelling, printing and packaging to create products that are finished and ready for final distribution to your customers. Our manufacturing building is 36,000 square feet, coupled with an on-site warehouse of 16,000 square feet, and we can meet your requirements and store your production prior to shipping.
How It Works
Injection moulding is a low-cost method of producing plastic components in medium to large quantities. Although designing and manufacturing a mould tool has a greater initial set-up cost than other processes (such as rotational moulding), the faster cycle time, durability, and repeatability of plastic injection moulding can reduce piece part costs when compared to other plastic process methods.
Plastic pellets are melted and extruded through a heated chamber by a screw, then injected into a specialised mould. The item cools in the mould until it's firm enough to expel mechanically or with compressed air. Mould tools can be constructed with one or more cavities, and we can assist with tool design to match your annual volume requirements based on your specifications.
Chess Plastics has invested in a range of modern machinery between 500t and 1400T and will optimise the setting process parameters and can arrange tool maintenance to ensure that your mould tool produces good quality parts to meet your requirements.
Injection moulding offers a vast array of colour choices. We can usually match any Pantone or RAL reference and assist with suitable material choice, polishes, surface textures, and cosmetics as required.
