This paper contains a description of tests including the simulation of the injection moulding of thin-walled products. The simulation was designed to analyse the potential impact of processing conditions and cooling conditions on the defects of thin-walled products of the body of the syringe. In order to obtain the correct results, the analysis was based on a simulation comparison with the data obtained after the injection mouldings were produced. Four cases were considered - parameters with reduced injection pressure and absence of pressure push, with a reduced temperature of the injection mould. The test results were analysed in conditions compliant with the recommendations of the production card and with the parameters optimised by computational algorithms of the computer programme. Simulations were carried out using the Simcon CadMould 3D-F programme. The paper describes the construction of a thin-walled body, which is the main segment of a medical instrument - a medical syringe. Also described in the paper are the process of injection of polymer materials and the characteristics of the production of medical syringes. In addition the computer programme software for the simulation of production processes was presented.
