How Low Pressure Processing can Work for You

The method of resin conversion is often overlooked when product designers are searching for performance or improved design freedoms. By far, standard injection molding is the process of choice for most molded products. Resin data sheets are studied to determine the best performance for the price.

By definition, low pressure processing refers to the cavity pressure in the mold. This processing method injects a short shot into the cavity and relies on features of the particular process to complete the filling. The end results is a part molded with significantly reduced molded in stresses, much lower clamp tonnage requirements and improved tolerance control.

Choosing a low-pressure process for your application can bring improved productivity while reducing overall part price.

How does it work? It's all based on a concept called Low Pressure Processing.
