The confusion is that both operations are similar in a plethora of ways. However, there are some essential differences you have to think about. You can find out more about them below. INJECTING AND POURING With moulding, you usually inject material into a mould that is normally made of metal. As for casting, you pour the liquid metal into a form that is silicone rubber or something similar. Both practices can lead to very different results. The two processes can involve various techniques too. These can influence the outcomes, benefits, and costs. MOULDING TECHNIQUES Some of the aforementioned techniques include thin wall and gas injection moulding. With the former, it focuses on making the part's wall as thin as you can. The result is a more flexible, lighter piece. Usually, the wall's width is less than .025 of an inch. As for gas injection, it lets the creator blast a hollow point into their mould. This can useful for many parts. The technique also makes sure the part does not distort when it cools.
