Case Studies: Gas-Assist Injection Molding


Build a complex, ergonomically designed handle while minimizing part costs.


Through the application of gas-assist injection molding developed an ergonomic, lighter weight and lower cost handle.


Some of the advantages over conventional molding are as follow:

  • More ergonomic design
  • Material savings of 40%
  • Cycle time reduction of 50%
  • Superior strength to weight ratio
  • Minimal warp
  • Eliminated sink marks
  • Simplified tooling (no cores required)
  • Lower clamp tonnage (smaller machine) required due to lower injection pressures
  • Cost savings of over 40%
