How is a Lego piece made?

LEGO bricks are composed of an ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) thermoplastic polymer composed of three monomers; these include: acrylonitrile for strength; 1,3-butadiene to make them resilient against cracking; and finally styrene which provides their characteristic shiny, hard surface. Lego purchases pre-made ABS granules from suppliers and uses injection molding techniques to form them into brick shapes on an industrial scale.

Lego pieces have long been celebrated for their tolerances; and rightly so; building bricks that stay together without disintegrating requires special skills and patience.

Tiny granules of ABS are delivered by truckload to Lego factories where they’re melted down and injected into molds for pieces, using a molding machine heated to 230@C that pumps in plastic goo into molds until all brick shapes have been formed into complete brick shapes within seven seconds. They then cool off before being collected by robots for assembly halls where designs or mini figures may be stamped onto them before finally returning home in bins or robots for distribution back out into bins for sorting into bins awaiting shipment back out before coming back out to assembly halls where assembly halls if needed or stamped with designs or assembled by stamping machines for stamping onto plastic goo into molds at this stage of production.
