Injection Molding Tolerance
Experts in close tolerances and custom injection molding machines understand the importance and precautions of sealing.
Variable part flatness and defective gasket-type seals
Excessive parting lines in the sealing face can create leak paths
Unable to clean seals due to inconsistent dimensional requirements
While these issues are common, every industry faces its own sealing challenges. Automotive and industrial manufacturers may require parts with tight injection molding tolerances. These components can be sealed in fluids such as transmission fluids, coolants, or other abrasive chemicals. To ensure proper drug dosing and administration, medical OEMs may prioritize parts with complex geometries. Consumer OEMs may require appliances for water interaction.
Understanding the conditions of use is important, but it’s just a starting point. Your injection molding partner should be able and willing to validate your design for manufacture. It is important to plan for a good seal during the design phase. The same applies to the precise manufacture of matching components for mission-critical components. Injection molding plays a bigger role in industrial development. As expectations for injection molding tolerances increase, so do high-quality, high-performance parts.
