Gas-Assist Injection Technology (GIT) enhances the traditional molding process of manufacturing plastic components. Nitrogen is introduced into the molten plastic during its injection into the plastic mold, displacing material and enhancing the cooling of the material.
Successful implementation brings a number of process cost-saving advantages, including:
- Diminished cycle time
- Lower scrap rate
- Reductions in material consumption
- Lower part weight
- Energy savings
Gas assist also provides increased design versatility for new products and can be easily integrated into existing conventional processes.
