Insert efficiencies into your plastics injection job shop with E2 manufacturing software
From quotes to quality and everything in between, E2 Shop System helps you manage
In 1868 John Wesley Hyatt became the first to inject hot celluloid into a mold, producing billiard balls. He and his brother Isaiah patented an injection molding machine that used a plunger in 1872, and the process remained more or less the same until 1946, when James Hendry built the first screw injection molding machine, revolutionizing the plastics industry. Roughly 95% of all molding machines now use screws to efficiently heat, mix, and inject plastic into molds.
Plastic injection molding shops have come a long way. Some shops take a job from cradle to grave by building the tool and/or mold and producing the parts as well. While other shops simply produce molded parts from a customer supplied mold.
