  • Patent number: 11389995
    Abstract: An injection molding method for a semifinished product includes a semifinished product emplacement step, a semifinished product pre-compression step and a forming step. First, a pair of mold with a forming space is provided. A semifinished product is put into the mold, and a first joint is performed to the mold by a press-fit jig, fixing the semifinished product in the forming space. The semifinished product is also tightly fitted with the mold. Next, a first open-die is performed and the press-fit jig is removed. After that, a second joint is performed, and a forming material is injected into the forming space. Finally, a second open-die is performed, and then a finished product is formed. By the semifinished product pre-compression step, the forming material can be prevented from resulting in spill or burr on the semifinished product, thereby improving the yield of injection molding.
