What is injection molding?
Injection molding is the process of forcing plastic material molten by heat into a mold and then cooling and solidifying it into a final product.
How is injection molding used in the manufacturing of medical devices?
In the making of medical devices, polymers or polymeric materials are heated until liquified and then injected into a mold, cooled and solidified to produce devices that are compatible with a health care need.
Injection molding is one of the most cost-effective manufacturing processes in today’s market. Many materials used in medical device injection molding are durable and able to resist harsh environments without cracking, breaking or shattering. They are also resistant to contaminates and easily sterilized.
Medical device plastic injection molding is a critical process where the stakes are high. As a result, specific requirements must be met in the design, planning and manufacturing processes.
Some of those include FDA approval and ISO certification and compliance. FDA regulations for cleanliness and sterility must be met both in the parts themselves and the manufacturing process.
