Our Manufacturing Process

To manufacture our plastic items, we use injection moulding. Injection moulding, also called plastic injection, is a process of using thermo-formable materials, especially thermoplastics in addition to various metals, alloys, and technical ceramics.

Most thermoplastic parts are made with plastic injection presses: the plastic material is softened by heat and then injected into a mould, then cooled.


The productivity of the process is linked to the cycle time (duration of a moulding cycle) and the number of cavities (or cavities) of moulding. Thus, an eight-cavity mould makes it possible to produce eight parts in a single cycle. The duration of the cycle is essentially linked to the nature of the material injected, to the quality of the parts to be produced as well as to the heating and cooling rates.
