Insert Molding

Mold plastic around a preformed — often metal-threaded — insert.

What Is Injection Molding?

Injection molding is the most cost-effective way to make a plastic part at scale. The injection molding process involves injecting molten plastic into a mold tool, then ejecting the solidified part. This process quickly repeats hundreds or thousands of times, amortizing the cost of the mold tool and driving down the cost of each unit to a few dollars or less. Since the injection molding process uses the same mold tool for each part, it offers consistent quality across every part. Injection molding also has the highest variety of materials, colors, cosmetics, polishes, and surface textures when compared to CNC machining or even 3D printing.

BoYi’s custom plastic mold service is a service providing on-demand prototype and production molding. We take a customer-first approach which means we find the right injection molding supplier within our manufacturing supplier network to mold the parts the way you need them—without design compromises—at the right price point. We offer expert consultation on each injection mold quote and project managers on every order to move your parts from design to production. Our team has experience in every industry, especially medical injection molding and liquid silicone rubber molding. First-time buyers receive $500 off their first mold with Xometry. We offer both domestic and China injection molding options, as well as ITAR injection molding.

FAQs

Injection molding could absolutely be used for prototyping, but it depends on the project requirements. Typically, for projects that require less than 10 prototypes, injection molding may not be the most cost-effective option. We are happy to meet with you to discuss your needs and help determine if injection molding is the correct process for you.

BOYI is happy to offer you injection molding services with NO minimum order quantity.

Absolutely. As long as you are able to supply project requirements and part specifications, Fictiv is happy to provide a no-obligation quotation.

Of course! BOYI will maintain your mold for 2 years after your most recent order and allow you to re-order parts for the duration of the mold life.

BOYI’s quick turn molding process involves using a proprietary insert and base system to produce molded parts rapidly. Depending on your project’s requirements and complexity, parts can be delivered as quickly as 5 business days!

Yes! As part of Xometry’s service, we offer DFM feedback on all projects both pre-sale as well as during final tool kickoff to ensure the project is a success.

After receiving the order, one of our manufacturing engineers reviews the statement of work. A case manager is assigned, and an appropriate manufacturing supplier is identified. A comprehensive DFM/PEG report is created and provided for approval. Upon approval, tooling and mold production is commenced. T1 samples are produced and shipped for approval. Upon approval, the remaining parts are made.

Injection molding is used across various industries, including aerospace, medical devices, consumer goods, energy, electronics, automotive, robotics, toys, and more.
