   Double injection molding is a plastic molding solution that two different materials or same material with different color are injected into one plastic part at one time with an injection molding machine with 2 sets of injection systems . It is an innovative process of molding. It is more complex than single injection mold, and the cost of double injection mold also is higher than single injection mold.
Double Injection Molding make a single part be integrated with hard and soft materials to create new feature advantages, or a single part with letter or pattern is molded by 2 different color plastic, the pattern looks bold ,vibrant and pure. Buttons in computer and communication area are generally made by the 2 septs, the first step is molding button without character, the second step is that the character is printed on the face of button. The advantage of the process is that injection molding is simple, but the characters are worn down easily, finally it will blur. If buttons are made by double injection molding, the buttons will be molded with different color characters at one time, the characters will not easily wear down. Double injection molding also allows that molding using transparent plastics, which improves the product functionality and value.

double_injection_machine double_injection_machine Double injection molding machines include two parts,
one is a stationary platen with two nozzles as suitable intervals in a horizontal row. The other is movable part with a revolvable platen that can gyrate for 180 degree. the moving unit is moved in parallel with the stationary platen. Double injection molding need two sets injection molds that also include two movable parts and two stationary parts, Two movable must match each stationary part.

double_injection_machine double_injection_machine How is double injection molds installed to the double injection molding machines?
Step 1: Any one set injection mold is installed to any a injection unit of double injection molding machine as generic mathed.
Step 2: The platen of movable part of double injection machine gyrate for 180 degree.
Step 3: The stationary part of the mold left is fitted to the movable part of the mold installed to the double injection molding machine.
Step 4: The movable part of the mold left is fitted to the stationary part of the mold installed to the double injection molding machine.
Step 5: Fix the mold to the double injection molding machine.
Double injection molding step:
Double injection molding includes 2 steps, in the first step, a nozzle injects plastic into a mold, in the second step, the mold automatically rotate to a different position, other type of plastic is injected into the mold from a second nozzle, so that the double injection molding is performed
Step 1: Closing molds, then injecting, the two nozzles on stationary platen can provide injection unit to two injection molds.
Step 2: Opening molds. The movable part of the machine move back to suitable position.
Step 3: One unit plastic part will be ejected out, the other unit will be retained on the mold.
Step 4: The platen of the movable part of the double injection molding machine gyrate for 180 degree.
Step 5: Closing molds, the 2 movable part of molds can re-fit to each stationary part of the molds
Step 6: Re-injecting.
