Plastic Injection Molding



We have been involved in plastic injection molding since 1999 and manufacture a wide range of products, including products to client specifications. Our manufacturing facility is based in China, where we have a wide range of machinery to suit your plastic injection molding needs. We have a fully-equipped Plastic Mold making room, with highly qualified contract toolmakers to satisfy any plastic injection molds needs you may have.

As a well-established plastic injection moulding business, we consider ourselves leaders in the moulding of a wide variety of plastic molding parts, including items such as rulers, pencil cases, ice buckets, lip-balm tubes, irrigation parts and many more.

We also have a number of clients who provide us with the moulds to manufacture exclusively for them.

Our experience and expertise in the manufacture and maintenance of tooling and moulds as well as high-quality machinery and production techniques makes us the right choice to satisfy your plastic injection moulding project requirements.

Injection Molding Solutions: HYX MOLD, is a fully service plastic mold and injection molding compay. Providing services from product inception and design- helping you get your ideas from informal to formal media. From there to tool building – making a precision mold of your product and completing the molding process. All the while, our top notch quality program will ensure the best finished product.

Injection Moulding: Injection moulding requires that plastic pellets be melted and then forced into the mould cavity. The plastification of the material in the barrel usually is facilitated by sheer and friction from a rotating screw that also feeds in new material. In thermoplastics the material is cooled in the mold until it can be ejected.

Fully AutomaticFully automatic molds run with no operator. They may utilize a variety of mechanical devices to facilitate part removal such as mold sweeps, air blasts or sprue pickers. They may contain core pulls, cams to remove undercuts, multiple plates, hot runner or insulated runner systems, unscrewing devices or any number of devices and techniques to improve efficiency.

Semi-automatic & Hand operated: Semi-automatic molds are typically mounted in the press and require an operator only to perform a specific operation of the cycle (i.e., remove a core, place an insert, remove the part from an undercut). Hand operated molds require an operator to physically remove the mold from the press and disassemble it to remove the molded part. They are used for very small quantities or parts that have undercuts, threads or other complicated features.

Prototype Tools: Prototype tools can produce thousands of parts and, if shrinkage is not a factor, a variety of materials can be tested. Modifying a prototype tool costs substantially less than the cost to change a production tool. Make your changes in this development phase, not after the parts go into production.

Compression Molding: Compression molding involves a heated mold in which the material charge is placed into the mold (often having been preheated) and the mold halves compress the material into shape.

Transfer Molding: Transfer molding is a process largely reserved for thermosets in which (much like the injection process) preheated material is transferred with a plunger into the closed mold cavity.

Pressure Forming: Pressure forming can refer to many materials and processes.

University professor Dr.-Ing. Christian Hopmann, now 42, will succeed Prof. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Walter Michaeli as head of the IKV(Institute of Plastics Processing), director of the Association of Sponsors of IKV and holder of the Chair of Plastic injection moulding Processing at RWTH Aachen University when the latter reaches retirement age next summer.

Hopmann studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University, with a particular focus on plastics processing, and received his doctorate in 2000. His study of ceramic injection moulding was in fact supervised by Prof. Michaeli. Hopmann was initially a research fellow at the IKV. Later, he headed its department of part design and materials technology. From 2001 to 2004, he was chief engineer and, in this capacity, also deputy director of the IKV. This background prepares him well for his future activities.

Between 2005 and late 2010, Hopmann worked in industry. At RKW AG Rheinische Kunststoffwerke (today, RKW SE), a leading European manufacturer of high-quality polyethylene and polypropylene films, nonwovens and nets, he served as head of quality management at RKW’s site in Petersaurach, Germany, and as chief of extrusion. Since the beginning of 2010, he had been managing director of RKW Sweden AB in Helsingborg.

Hopmann is looking forward to his new assignment at the IKV. “The special constellation of the institute, which is outstandingly networked not only in interdisciplinary research inside and outside RWTH but also in industrial joint research, is the basis for excellent academic teaching,” he says. “Caring for and expanding this is a major challenge and an honour which I am very pleased to accept.”

The IKV at RWTH Aachen University is a large research institute employing more than 300 people who work on problems encountered during the processing of many different types of plastic. It is divided into four specialist departments covering injection moulding and polyurethane technology, extrusion and further processing, part design and materials technology, and composites. The institute comprises the Centre for Analysis and Testing of Plastics, and a Training and Further Education department, as well. It is run by the Association of Sponsors, whose membership now consists of about 250 plastics companies from all over the world.
