Plastic injection molding is the process of producing plastic products by injecting molten plastic into a metal mold to form items of different shapes and design. It was first done by an American inventor John Hyatt when he tried making billiard balls from plastics other than the normally used material, ivory. However, the billiard ball did not get recognition as expected but his machine was admired by many people and soon companies started manufacturing plastics using this method.
