STRUCTURAL FOAM MOLDING SERVICES
THE STRUCTURAL FOAM MOLDING PROCESS
Structural foam molding is a plastic injection molding technique we use at KASO that can be a great option for larger projects. It is most beneficial when a thick structural part is desired as in chassis’ and frames. It is also an excellent choice for external housings and bases where a high level of rigidity is crucial.
Structural foam molding is often the ideal solution for large parts, reducing tonnage and creating a more stable part. Plastic parts manufactured using this technique have enhanced strength and strength to weight ratios and can reduce mold weight up to 20%. Structural foam molding also offers low-cost tooling and a wide range of design flexibility.
The structural foam molded part will always be lighter than its standard injection molded counterpart. The thicker the part, the more weight is reduced.
