Injection Moulding Process Development / Optimisation

The consistency of the injection moulding process has a direct effect on quality, productivity and profitability. Many injection moulding processes are set as a result of an individual’s expertise and knowledge of the machine, mould or material. AST Technology can develop a more structured and comprehensive approach to ensure that the best possible injection moulding process is achieved.
