What is plastic injection molding?

In Guzman Global’s Plastic business unit we have a wide range of products, including electrical machinery for plastic injection.

But, what is injection molding and what can it be used for? It is a process in which a thermoplastic material or thermoplastic elastomer in a molten state is injected into a closed mold under pressure. In it, the material solidifies and copies the form of the cavities of it. It is a technique widely used to manufacture different articles, including high technical performance applications such as components for the automotive industry. It is also a process which is very respectful to the environment. Polymers have become substitutes for other materials such as metal, wood or natural fibres.

Through injection molding we can obtain parts with a very small size up to objects of large dimensions. In addition, products manufactured by plastic injection molding can come to replace more expensive elements, achieving significant savings.

At Guzman Global we believe in the most innovative technology to improve processes and bring to the customer what he needs.  It is for this reason that we are distributors in the Iberian Peninsula of Fanuc electrical injection machines.

Our 75 years of experience and our presence in 28 countries endorses us as leaders of the sector. We also have our own technical service.
