Injection Moulding

Injection moulding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting material into a mould.

Injection moulding can be performed with a variety of materials; here at ACT our products are manufactured using only the highest grade and quality of polymers.

Throughout many years working with injection moulding, we at ACT have found that that there is no substitute for time served practical experience, enabling us to work with confidence using a wide range of different polymers.

At ACT a combination of purpose build manufacturing facilities, individual and industry based skills and an ethos of hard work and quality assurance, the ACT Group has become one of the market leaders in our field. Supplying the highest quality injection moulded and precision engineered products throughout the world. This has been achieved through the implementation of bespoke design and manufacturing processes, from the initial design process, through prototyping and concept development, followed by the manufacture and distribution of a high quality finished product.

How It Works

Plastic injection moulding is the process of creating component parts via the use of a mould. Hot liquid plastic is injected into a pre-set mould, allowed to cool and then released, collected and packaged.

With so many plastic injection moulded products surrounding us in our day-to-day lives, it is no surprise that making these products means that our machines can run 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.

The process of plastic Injection moulding

The liquid plastic is injected into the mould under pressure. It is important that a tight pressure is kept to prevent air bubbles. Either side of the mould is clamped together tightly. Once it has been ensured that all cavities have been filled with plastic the mould is allowed to cool.
Once cooled, the moving side of the mould is taken away from the static side of the mould and the product is revealed.
After a run of the product has finished, the factory stores the tooling and moulds securely until another batch of the product is required.
The tool makers will be able to pick up where they left off and create the same product or make modifications if required by the customer.

Tooling

ACT has its own “in house” tool room and experienced tool makers where we can manufacture the tooling required for new projects and they give us the ability to create products by the hundreds of thousands – all immaculately, and all to the same precise specifications. In addition to this, we can carry out refurbishment on existing moulding tooling to overcome poor quality moulding and reduce manufacturing scrap levels.

Wear Protection & Reduction

Due to the nature of our own patented products and the industries in which our core products are supplied, using the correct polymer types can provide a very low coefficient of friction, this encourages the material to glide over an opposed surface rather than scouring the surface. The effects of friction or sliding induced abrasion are vastly reduced.

All of our products offer wear-resistant performance based on an ability to counter the effects of impact and sliding induced abrasion.
To ensure consistent quality we are ISO 9001:2008 accredited. We maintain a number of in-house practices and have set quality control procedures that ensure that only the best products are manufactured to the satisfaction of every customer.
Our large and purpose built premises house an array of advanced injection moulding equipment , incorporating our own mould tooling and 3D modelling and printing facilities.

Recycling Waste Products

All waste products are collected during the manufacturing process. All polymers are ground down and reused for products that do not require virgin base material.

Total End To End Project Processing

Whilst we are predominantly injection moulders, we can provide additional services such as printing, welding, plating, assembly and packaged to form complete units ready to despatch to the ‘High Street’ distributors.

Our main areas of supply include Cable & Hose Handling & Protection systems, Anti-Impalement Safety Caps, Conveying Chain & Flight Bars and Wear Protection Products.

The experience and academic ability of ACT enables us to provide project specific products, providing high warranty levels with confidence and low cost of ownership with very high availability..
