What is Plastic Injection Molding? Injection molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mold, or mold. Injection Molding can be performed with a host of materials mainly including and most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and injected into a mold cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity. After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, molds are made by a mold-maker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminum, and precision-machined to form the features ofRead More →

Solder Paste Solder paste is one of the most important materials used today in the manufacture of printed circuit boards to connect surface mount components to pads on the board. It is also possible to solder through-hole components by printing solder paste in and over the holes. Solder paste helps the world to enjoy the benefits of electronic equipment. The tin paste is called “paste” because it has a similar consistency to the toothpaste we brush our teeth with every day. The solder paste is essential to securely weld the components to the circuit board electronic parts. This process helps to keep all the parts inRead More →

Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) is a term used for companies that design, manufacture, test, distribute, and provide return/repair services for electronic components and assemblies for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The term “electronics manufacturing services” (EMS) refers to the overall industry and also to a specific class of subcontractor or company. EMS is also often used interchangeably with the more generic term “Electronics Contract Manufacturing (ECM)” or just “Contract Manufacturing (CM)”. In short, EMS companies provide a wide range of value-added engineering and manufacturing outsourcing services to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). It allows them to improve operational efficiencies and focus on core activities like research, productRead More →
