Air Assist


Gas Assist Injection Molding is the process in injection molding wherein nitrogen gas is injected through controlled high pressure into the tool during the injection process. 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!
