Using the injection molding process, we process different granulates. These include for example natural fiber (hemp or flax) and polylactide (PLA) blends or the lignin-based arboform. In bio-injection molding, the melted granules are injected into a molding tool using the appropriate injection molding parameters. The mold then forms the part, afterward, the molded compound is cooled down. After the molded part is cooled, it is removed from the mold.
Organic granules are petroleum-free, biodegradable and made of 100% renewable raw materials. Thus, the production of a molded part is primarily CO2-neutrally, from the raw material to the finished component.
The bio-injection process does not differ significantly from regular injection molding. Of course, we can also produce molded parts made of regular plastics like ABS or polypropylene with injection molding.
