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 UK offers a vast number of rigid plastics and resins that meet the required structural and cosmetic characteristics. Beyond materials, injection moulded parts can have custom finishing, polishes, or surface textures. Xometry UK 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 UK
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 UK 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. Xometry UK is ISO 9001 certified.
Xometry Injection Moulding Mould Classes
|Mould class||Cycles||Production level||Mould base||Minimum hardness (BHN)||Description|

Order Injection Moulding: How It Works
1. Request Manufacturing
Upload your designs, choose quantity, material and colour options.
2. Quote & DFM
We perform design-for-manufacturability analysis and prepare your quote within 48 hours.
3. Tool Manufacturing
After mold design approval, we start manufacturing the tool.
We produce samples, perform QA, and send the samples to you.
5. Production Completion
After approval of the samples, the large batch production is kicked-off.
Your parts are delivered to you, in the UK.
