Liquid Injection Molding (LIM)

What is Silicone Liquid Injection Molding?

Silicone liquid injection molding, or LIM, is a manufacturing process commonly used to make silicone parts (considered a subset of rubber or thermoset) that need to withstand extreme conditions, regardless of the industry. The process is an injection molding process at heart, meaning that materials are injected into a pre-made mold, where heat accelerates part curing. Then, the process repeats itself until the part run is complete.

7 Axis CNC / Swiss Lathe

What Is 7 Axis CNC / Swiss Lathe?

There are a lot of different part production methods out there, but one of the oldest is still arguably one of the most effective - and that's CNC machining. CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining is a metal part manufacturing production process. It's a subtractive process, meaning that a bar stock of metal is fed into a machining center, which then works to remove metal until the final intended part is produced. CNC machining is performed in machines that operate on a variety of axes. Generally speaking, the more axes a machine uses in its production operations, the more intricate and detailed the part.

Rotational Molding / RotoMolding

What Is Rotational Molding?

Rotational molding, which is also commonly referred to as "rotomolding" or "rotational casting," is a common means of creating plastic parts that's increasingly gaining traction as an alternative means to plastic injection molding and other plastic producing processes. A big reason is because parts that are challenging or impossible to create via plastic injection molding, blow molding and thermoforming - such as hollow parts, partially enclosed parts, large and small parts and parts with other complexities - can be crafted via the process.

Thermoplastic Injection Molding (TIM)

What is Thermoplastic Injection Molding?

Thermoplastic injection molding is a manufacturing process that creates fully functional parts by injecting plastic resin into a pre-made mold. It has several sub categories, such as rapid injection molding, which is best utilized in fine tuning prototypes prior to a product being given the go-ahead for production. Another sub category, production injection molding, is best utilized for full product runs.

Metal Injection Molding (MIM)

What Is Metal Injection Molding

ASH™ offers several different types of injection molding production processes. There's plastic injection molding, where thermoplastic materials are injected into a mold where they're then allowed to form and curate, creating plastic products.
