Injection Moulding Services
Injection moulding is the most cost-effective way to make a plastic part at scale and offers consistent quality for low-to-high volume manufacturing. Xometry offers a vast number of rigid plastics and resins that meet required structural and cosmetic characteristics. Beyond materials, injection moulded parts can have custom finishing, polishes, or surface textures. Xometry offers both high-precision tool manufacturing and injection moulding services.
Xometry Injection Moulding Capabilities
Injection Moulding, Insert Moulding, Overmoulding
Starts at 10 business days
Rapid Tooling: recommended for 100-10,000 parts / Production Tooling: recommended for over 10,000 parts
Plastics and resins
Single, multi-cavity, and family moulds; 50 to 1,100+ press tonnage; side actions including hand-loaded cores
Mould Cavity Tolerances
± 0.1 mm when machining the mold and an additional ± 0.05 mm when calculating for shrink rate
Part to Part Repeatability
±0.1 mm or less
Critical Feature Tolerances
Tighter tolerances can be requested and may increase the cost of tooling because of additional sampling and grooming. Xometry will mill to a steel-safe condition on critical features.
Available Mould Types
Steel (tool steel, carbon steel) and aluminum; Production grades range from Class 105, a prototype mold, to Class 101, an extremely high production mould.
Advantages of Injection Moulding with Xometry
We offer fast mould lead times: in as fast as 10 business days for rapid tooling and up to 20 days for production tooling.
Ideal for the production starting from 100 parts.
Xometry offers tight tolerance options in accordance with ISO 16742, up to ±0,07 mm depending on the precision of the mould and size of the parts.
Single, multi-cavity, and family mould options.
Vast materials selection allows you to get the desired strength and surface quality.
Our QA department performs strong quality assurance.

Overview: What Is Injection Molding?
Injection moulding is the most cost-effective way to make a plastic part at scale. The process involves injecting molten plastic into a mould tool, then ejecting the solidified part. This process quickly repeats hundreds or thousands of times, amortizing the cost of the mold tool and driving down the cost of each unit to a few dollars or less.
