The most common type of injection molding machine is the hydraulic injection molding machine. However, there are several types of injection molding machines used in the industry, each with its own advantages and applications. Here’s an overview of the most common types:

1. Hydraulic Injection Molding Machines

These machines use hydraulic cylinders to control the injection process and clamping force.

High power and force capabilities.
Suitable for large parts and high-volume production.
Generally more cost-effective than electric machines.

Automotive parts, large containers, industrial components.
2. Electric Injection Molding Machines

These machines use electric servo motors to drive the injection process and clamping mechanism.

Higher precision and repeatability.
Energy-efficient with lower operational costs.
Faster cycle times compared to hydraulic machines.

Precision components, medical devices, consumer electronics.
3. Hybrid Injection Molding Machines

Combines elements of both hydraulic and electric machines to leverage the benefits of both technologies.

Balanced performance with energy efficiency.
High precision with strong clamping force.
Versatile for a wide range of applications.

Automotive parts, packaging, consumer goods.
4. Vertical Injection Molding Machines

The mold opens and closes vertically rather than horizontally; often used for insert molding processes.

Ideal for overmolding or insert molding applications.
Efficient use of floor space.

Electrical connectors , medical devices , automotive mold parts .
