Have you ever wondered how the ornaments that beautify our shoes are made? In this article, we will reveal the fascinating process of manufacturing shoe ornaments using the microinjection technique.

The microinjection process used in the manufacturing of components for footwear, leather goods, and clothing is a precise technique that involves injecting liquid plastic into high-precision molds to create detailed and high-quality components. At Britigraf, we use raw materials that comply with the European REACH regulation. Broadly, the steps in the microinjection process are as follows:

  1. Mold preparation: It begins with the creation of detailed molds that represent the design of the shoe ornament.
  2. Plastic injection: Once the molds are ready, liquid plastic is introduced into the mold through an injection process. This plastic can be of different types, depending on the properties required for the final ornament.
  3. Pressure and temperature: During the injection process, controlled pressure and temperature are applied to ensure that the plastic is evenly distributed throughout the mold and takes the desired shape with all the design details.
  4. Cooling and solidification: After injection, the mold is cooled to allow the material to solidify and take its final shape.
  5. Ornament extraction: Once fully solidified, the ornament is carefully extracted from the mold to avoid damaging fine details. This process may require additional finishing and cleaning techniques to ensure the quality of the final ornament.

Advantages of microinjection manufactured shoe ornaments

Microinjection offers several significant advantages in the manufacturing of shoe ornaments, making it a highly valued technique in the footwear industry. Additionally, at Britigraf, we use Bio Plastisols to achieve a high-quality, environmentally friendly product. Here are some of its main advantages:

  1. Precision and detail: Microinjection allows for the creation of shoe components with precise and fine details, resulting in a high-quality and aesthetically pleasing finish.
  2. Design versatility: This technique offers great versatility in design, allowing the manufacturing of a wide variety of components with diverse shapes and structures. From logos to ornamental details, microinjection can materialize almost any design with great fidelity.
  3. Production efficiency: Microinjection allows for rapid and consistent mass production of shoe components. This is crucial to meet market demand and maintain short delivery times.
  4. Durability and resistance: Components manufactured through microinjection are durable and resistant, ensuring a long lifespan for the footwear.
  5. Cost-effectiveness: Despite its high precision and quality, microinjection has an excellent cost-effectiveness ratio, especially in large-scale production.
