About Project

FacFox is a leading online platform for custom manufacturing services, including injection molding, 3D printing, CNC machining and more. One of our recent projects involved injection molding and electroplating an ABS golden car shell for a client in the toy industry.

The client needed a realistic and durable car shell for their toy car model. They provided us with the CAD model and specifications of the car shell, which had a length of 100 mm.

We used our advanced injection molding machines and skilled operators to produce the car shell according to the client’s requirements. We selected ABS as the base material for its high impact strength and heat resistance. We also applied some mold release agents on the mold cavity to prevent sticking and facilitate demolding.

The client was very satisfied with the quality and aesthetics of the car shell, and praised our efficiency and professionalism. They reported that the car shell fit well with their toy car model, and impressed many customers with its frosted gold color.

This project demonstrates our expertise and capability in injection molding and electroplating complex and customized parts for various industries. We are proud to offer high-quality injection molding services at affordable prices and fast delivery times.

Solution

  • Step 1: The two halves of the mold were clamped together in a machine press. The plastic material was melted and injected into the mold cavity.
  • Step 2: Pressure was applied to the mold to ensure the plastic filled every cavity and matched the mold shape.
  • Step 3: The plastic was cooled and hardened inside the mold.
  • Step 4: The mold was opened and the part was ejected.
  • Step 5: The part was removed from the mold and any excess material was trimmed.
  • Step 6: Finally, the part was electroplated for a desired coating.
