Injection Molded Parts

Injection Moulding

One of the most extensively used methods for creating plastic parts is plastic injection moulding. Plastic injection moulding is a cyclical process in which hot melt is poured into the mould (also known as the tool) at high pressure and speed. The resultant form (product) is then allowed to cool inside the tool, and the process ends with the product being ejected. This method is used in making solitary end-products or components for mining purposes. The materials used in injection moulding for mining devices and supplies are typically diverse. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polyethylene, polycarbonate, and polypropylene are a few of them. Zeal 3D Services uses plastic injection moulding technology to deliver extensive prototyping and component production services. We can design and create high-quality injection-moulded plastic parts using our state-of-the-art tools, expertise, and experience.

Laser Cutting and Fabrication

Laser cutting is the process of cutting or slicing materials using a high-power laser beam focused on the product to be cut. Laser cutting gives the benefits of high quality and precision at rapid processing speeds without the need to repair the cut edges of mining equipment and instruments. On components requiring high levels of accuracy and quality, laser cutting techniques not only provide very exact spot sizes, or tool widths, but also provide a variety of other benefits, such as being a non-contact form of slicing with minimal thermal input into the work piece. At Zeal 3D, we provide high-end laser cutting services for the production of equipment and instruments for the mining industry.

Sheet metal fabrication is essential to the mining sector to build components that are necessary for a wide range of mining operations. Frames, bridges, platforms, hammers, blades, and truck parts are a few examples of these parts. By providing a secure foundation for machinery or equipment, these parts facilitate a wide range of operations. They provide safety and worker protection on mine sites and workstations. Custom sheet metal fabrication is essential to the mining industry since it enables the creation of mining equipment with incredibly precise and specialised functionality. Zeal 3D can handle all of your sheet metal fabrication needs with the most modern and cutting-edge equipment. We have all the necessary resources, personnel, and expertise to guarantee the maximum degree of success for your projects.

3D Designing for Mining Industry


Extrusion is utilised in mining applications to create plastic pipes with diameters of more than 800 mm because of its homogeneous cross-sectional forms. These reduce noise levels compared to steel pipes and also shield surfaces from pollution due to abrasion, which is particularly important when mining iron ore. At Zeal 3D, we provide a variety of metal extrusion alternatives, including aluminium and many others.


A three-dimensional visual representation of any object or surface is produced using the digital design process known as 3D designing. In 3D design, mesh is a crucial part of the design and can be compared to a collection of points in space-time. In mining operations, the use of 3D designing technologies is becoming increasingly important. Designers can specify and build the fundamental CAD designs for the new mining equipment during the 3D designing process, including the minimum die angles and filleting radii values. The CAD design automatically produces flawless surfaces that follow each of the design specifications. Additionally, a variety of 3D design tools and skills are available in CAD for improved edge blending and countersinking.

3D Scanning

3D scanning is a quick and precise method of digitizing tangible objects for use in design, inspection, and visualization tasks. Almost every product can benefit from the use of 3D scanners to precisely record the physical shape and dimensions that can be replicated using reverse engineering techniques. For mining applications, precise duplicates of mining instruments or equipment are manufactured or reproduced by 3D scanning the original source product.

At Zeal 3D, we typically implement 3D scanning for the process of reverse engineering. 3D scanning is also used to modify or develop the existing parts. With 3D scanning, customers may easily replicate or recreate the old parts and replications, depending on the source product using 3D scanning. In addition, it is also used for inspection and analysis purposes.
