  1. Explaining Structural Foam Molding Process and Its Benefits

  2. No manufacturing company can survive for too long if it's not providing quality products to consumers at reasonable prices. This is the key to success these days, and it is possible only when you're using an appropriate manufacturing method. In this article, we'll discuss the process and the benefits from Structural Foam Molding which is a very popular manufacturing method, especially when it is about building light-weight plastic parts on a large scale. Continue reading this article to explore the Structural Foam Molding process and its benefits.

  3. How do we buildplastic parts through structural foam molding? The process is almost similar to the normal injection molding in which melted polymer is injected into apre-designed mold. However, there are basically two major differences between the process of conventional injection molding and structural foam molding.First, in structural foam, melted polymer is forced into molds using low-pressure. Second, a chemical blowing agent or an inert gas is alsopresented along with that during infusion process, which is responsible for the foam-like structure of the end products. Only the core of the products has a foam-like structure while the outer walls are thick and solid.

  4. Let’s now explore the main advantages of structural foam molding, but keep in mind that you are likely to get these benefits only when using high-quality molds. • Low Power Consumption: To be honest, lowering the power consumption is the key to minimize the overall manufacturing cost. Since low-pressure is used for injection process, you are highly unlikely to face unnecessarily high power bills. This is a major advantage that it lets you manufacture large-scale plastic parts at low-power consumption. • Great Strength-to-weight Ratio: Presence of air bubbles in the core of the end products ultimately makes them light-weight. A very good strength-to-weight ratio is another main advantage of this manufacturing method. Even this process is basically used for the production of such plastic parts that need to be strong but not too heavy.

  5. Error-free Production: Chances of a company’s survival are higher when the production is done without an error. Yes, structural foam injection molding is a precise method that offers error-free production that too at low cost. Plastic products built through this process require very less or no additional surface finishing. • Almost Zero Wastage: Another reason why it is a cost-effective manufacturing process is that there’s absolutely no wastage. This is on the grounds that waste material can be re-used, except for some situations.
