An injection molding machine is a manufacturing machine used for production of molded plastic parts in large volume. The injection molding machine consists of two main components, i.e. an injection unit and a clamping unit. The machine is filled with a die with molten plastic by means of injecting the molten plastic under very high pressure into the mold. It is used to manufacture products made of plastics, rubber, metal, and ceramic. Rubber is used widely in automotive industry to make lightweight vehicles, which is expanding significantly across the globe. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, about 10% reduction in vehicle weight can result in a 6%-8% fuel economy improvement. Hence, this is estimated to be a significant factor to drive the growth of the global metal and ceramic injection molding market.
