What is gas assisted molding
This process, also known as GAIM (Gas Assisted Injection Moulding), allows the emptying of the workpiece, creating extremely resistant and lightweight items, thanks to the co-injection of gas inside the plastic material.
Items made through gas-assisted molding are strong and lightweight. Here are the main advantages:
How it works
Gas-assisted injection molding involves the introduction of an inert gas inside the plastic material previously injected into the mold.
The injection of gas inside this melt forms a bubble that pushes the plastic material to the outside of the mold and compacts it on the walls.
In this way, gas-assisted injection molding technology enables the production of high-quality parts with internal cavities.

The types of molding over the years have differed according to the material to be processed and the shapes and characteristics you wish to achieve. Learn about our molding services.
We do single-material molding: we make components with a type of injection involving only one type of polymer or thermoplastic material.
We make components with high aesthetic characteristics and high tightness and performance due to the possibility of molding two different thermoplastic materials in the same mold.
This type of molding allows plastic materials to be fused with other different materials such as metal, brass, or aluminum. The result is a piece of plastic firmly coupled with an insert encapsulated in it.
