Die Casting vs Injection Molding: The Pros and Cons

Before we go to the serious stuff, let’s put first things first. Let’s go right ahead and define die casting and injection molding. Die casting is a method of casting metal by using intense force. The raw material used in this process is metal and it is melted and forced into a steel mold. Once the material has hardened, it is cast out from the machine. The injection moulding process works in a very similar way except for the fact that instead of metal, plastic or polymers are used as raw materials for various products by plastic buckle manufacturers.

Injection Molding

The phases and types of injection moulding are very similar to die casting, except for the fact that plastic manufacturers use plastic or polymers instead of metal raw materials.

Die Casting vs Injection Molding: The Pros

Now that you are familiar on how both processes are done, you should know why die cast and plastic manufacturers love to use these two manufacturing processes.

Injection Moulding advantages

The two manufacturing processes also have different types. When it comes to plastic injection mold, the conventional method is what we have discussed earlier. The following are the other types.

Die Casting vs Injection Molding: The Cons

Just like any method of manufacturing, everything has its own set of cons and let’s get to the list.
