Richfields usually uses this process for plastic parts that are considered bigger or thinner than usual, under industry standards. There are a number of benefits to using Gas Assisted Injection Molding process. These include, but are not limited to:
Better part quality
Faster mold production cycle time
Improved surface texture
Reduced usage of plastic materials
Savings on expenses
The result is a more sustainable production process due to less stress, wear and tear on the tool. Surface texture is improved because with Gas Assisted Injection Molding, sink marks are eliminated. Contact Us today to know how you can increase production output and save on production costs!
Insert or over molding is used when the design of your products needs to combine materials with different specifications into one finished product. It is used when a single shot is not enough for the complexity of the product. The finished product of an insert molded or over molded part is a single piece with plastic molded around the insert. This is done by incorporating the insert into a tool and then over-molded to form the final part. The insert used in over molding is usually made of metal or plastic. Richfields can do insert over molding for customers who require it in the application of Specialized plastic or metal Inserts and threaded inserts. This technology is actually very cost effective, since it lessens future assembly costs. With the benefits of insert over molding, it has become popular in the market over the years.
Note that not all designs of plastic parts are readily manufactured using over molding, and insert over molding requires more diligence, expertise and experience from the mold makers. We at Richfields have been trained to help you resolve above-standard, complicated and large over-molded parts. We would be glad to assist you from product design up to manufacturing feasibility of your products, making sure your products are manufactured according to their intended use.

Richfields Corporation has both the skill and experience in producing plastic parts using cold runner molds. Cold Runner Molds has been used in the plastic industry for a long time now. They are typically less complicated to work with.
Cold runner molds usually uses more material during production, though. This is because in every molding cycle, a plastic part and a runner is produced.
The runner is made of excess plastic material present in every shot. The excess material is removed and may be disposed of or reprocessed. Consequently, the processing time is usually longer. There are also side effects to using reprocessed plastic materials.
The use of cold runner molds is still common in the plastic industry despite possible disadvantages mentioned above. That is because:
Changing color of plastic material is usually easier with cold runner molds.
Cold Runner Molds provides more cost savings in mold maintenance as well mold production.
Designs of cold runner molds are less complicated.
It is relatively easier to operate with cold runner molds.

Family Plastic Injection Molds is another cost-efficient solution to today's manufacturers who are seeking to improve their production productivity output without having to sacrifice quality. This is made possible by designing the injection tool so that one mold contains different parts of a product.
The family mold is a kind of multi-cavity mold where each cavity produces different parts of the same product. The parts produced by the different cavities may also be unrelated, they can belong to the same product line or to the same project.
Another reason to use family molds is when the production quantity is not very high in volume. This way, our customers can manufacture more than one part in one production cycle since two or more parts are produced in every shot.
When the different component parts of a product are produced using the same raw plastic material, then all the more reason to use family molds. Not only do you save on expenses in having an additional mold base, you also save on production hours! Time is saved from repetitive mold set up and multiple production cycles.
Richfields' plastic injection molding facilities are equipped to separate the different parts post production. Our production capacity versatility helps customers realize many benefits that not only save on monetary costs but also time and effort.

Richfields is a leader and innovator in manufacturing turnkey precision plastic products. Our secondary processes for plastic parts involve cost effective yet sophisticated manufacturing systems and techniques such as: Spray Painting, Pad Printing, Hot Stamping, Electro plating, Silk Screen and Ultrasonic Welding.
Spray Painting & Pad Printing :
Richfield's spray painting and pad printing lines are comprised of engineering personnel focused on creating applications that utilize process technologies such as tunnel conveyors and oven systems, multi-color painting and printing including two color effects. The main objective of our painting technology is reducing total product costs by utilizing state-of-the-art processing technologies making it possible to spray and cure parts in a single operation.
Pad printing is an offset process where an engraved plate is coated with ink, squeezed, which leaves wet ink on the plate in the engraved pattern. A silicone pad is then pressed onto the plate and rises with the inked image. The inked pad then descends onto the component and imprints the image. Because the pad is pliable, it forms around irregular surfaces, such as cylindrical containers or round objects.
Our equipment consist of 2 line tunnel conveyors, 10 spray paint chambers, 12 screen printing tables and 6 pad printing machines.
Silk screen printing is perhaps the most traditional printing method. It involves creating an aluminum fixture and screen where the area to be painted is cut out. The screen is then swiped with paint leaving paint only in the areas void of the aluminum screen. This is the least expensive out of all the painting methods in China.
Hot Stamping :
Hot stamping is comprised of a dry printing process that transfers pigment or metallic material from a continuous film carrier sheet to a component. Heat and pressure of hot stamping permanently transfers the image into the plastic. Silicone rubber dies conforms to fit the slightly uneven surfaces typically found in molded parts and this allows for excellent resolution and repeatability. This process is clean, dry, fast and free from the manufacturing limitations associated with wet ink printing. Hot stamping is often used in series with pad printing.
As your manufacturing partner, we will invest the time and effort to make sure that you have the best quality for your product. Richfields currently has six hot stamping machines to be able to service your high volume requirements.
Electroplating is a chemical process comprised of coating metals on plastic parts to provide a metallic look on your product. Richfields has extensive experience in the electro-plating of plastics, and are one of the few companies in China to commercially electro-plate plastics in a variety of metal finishes. Technology advancements and extensive expertise enable us to offer superior service of high quality finishes to meet almost all specifications.
Ultrasonic welding of plastic parts requires a CNC machined fixture to hold the two plastic parts tightly together. Once the parts are in the fixture the ultrasonic welding machine vibrates at a very high frequency transmitting a great deal of energy into the area where the two plastic parts are joined. The energy is so great that the two plastic parts melt and fuse together in the area they are joined. Ultrasonic welding provides a secure, cosmetically appealing way to join two plastic parts.
