Al­so in­jec­tion mold­ing or in­jec­tion mold­ing process. In­jec­tion mold­ing is a pri­ma­ry mold­ing tech­nique used pri­mar­i­ly in plas­tics tech­nol­o­gy for the eco­nom­i­cal se­ries pro­duc­tion of ready-to-use prod­ucts and mold­ed parts. In high­ly au­to­mat­ed in­jec­tion mold­ing ma­chines, gran­ules of en­gi­neer­ing plas­tics are made flow­able (plas­ti­cized) and in­ject­ed at high pres­sure in­to an in­jec­tion mold. The ma­te­r­i­al finds its shape and sur­face struc­ture in the cav­i­ties of the mold, where­by high pre­ci­sion and high sur­face qual­i­ties can be achieved. In ad­di­tion to the in­jec­tion mold­ing ma­chine, the mold and its tem­per­a­ture con­trol sys­tem are of de­ci­sive im­por­tance for the re­sult qual­i­ty of in­jec­tion mold­ed parts.
