Typical Sized Plastic Parts Molded on a 260-Ton Injection Molding Machine

A 260-ton plastic injection molding machine can produce large plastic parts weighing from 1 lb to over 25 lbs. Here are some examples of typical part sizes and products:


- Small parts around 1-3 lbs: Caps, fittings, electrical housings, medical components. Dimensions approximately 3" x 3" x 2".

- Medium-sized 3-10 lbs parts: Automotive trim, buckets, lawn furniture. Dimensions up to 16" x 12" x 10".

- Extra-large parts nearing 25-30 lbs: Playhouses, giant trash bins, car bumpers.

The clamping force of 260 tons allows molding of large production runs using most standard plastics like PP, HDPE, nylon, ABS, acetal etc. Parts can have projected areas ranging from around 60 to 100 square inches.

Multi-cavity molds are commonly used to maximize output. Some examples of products made on 260-ton machines with 2, 4, or 8 cavities include:

- Plastic pails and buckets

- Automotive ducts

- Large storage bins

- Water tank liners

- Trays for hospital carts

- Children's furniture
