Precision Injection Molding
Serving Global Customers for Over 30 Years
Innovating Manufacturing Technology
For many years, injection molding has been a trusted manufacturing technique for creating all kinds of plastic products and components. Injection molding meets the needs of many industries, but with new technologies, the injection mold industry is changing dramatically across countless different vertical markets. Key trends such as mold re-shoring, 3D printing, increased product customization, and new injection materials are sweeping the industry as companies push for lower product and manufacturing costs. Injection molding is sufficient for mass producing a wide range of parts and components, but for highly functional parts, a newer technology is needed—precision injection molding (PIM).
Precision injection molding is used to create specialized parts in industries like electronics, automotive, medical devices, optics, and more. Parts produced through precision injection molding can be used in advanced technical devices, products where small form factors are essential, or as replacements for precision metal parts. As an expert in manufacturing solutions with access to a global network of suppliers and leading-edge technology, Jabil offers customers many ways to maximize product offerings, including the use of precision injection molding.
Benefits of Precision Injection Molding
With the innovations in injection mold technology, businesses look to using precision injection molding for more technical applications while enjoying its benefits for a high-volume production process that is also cost effective:
- Efficient production – injection molding is faster than other molding techniques, allowing for more parts to be made from a single mold
- Strength – the use of fillers and other material blends can give plastics strength while reducing cost
- Complex designs – parts with high levels of detail or complex geometries can be made at high volumes
- Reduced cost – the use of automation techniques using CNC machine solutions helps reduce labor cost while increasing production efficiency
Customers with complex, high volume part requirements need trusted partners with comprehensive capabilities and effective collaboration. Jabil combines design for manufacturability expertise, from concept to high-volume manufacturing, that has served global customers for over 30 years.
