One component of the plastics manufacturing industry that’s on the rise is large part injection molding. This industry has come a long way. Many large parts that used to be made of wood or metal are now made of injection molded plastic. Producing larger and larger injection molded parts is easier and more efficient than it’s ever been. It’s also more sustainable, too!
Before we cover the benefits, you need to evaluate the plastics manufacturer you partner with. You need to make sure they can handle the size and capacity of the part you’d like to produce. Here are some core services and value-added services you should look for in a large part injection molding manufacturer:
Once you’ve found a plastics manufacturer you can trust, you’re ready to explore the benefits of large part injection molding.
Plastic Is Stronger Than Ever Before
Plastic and resins are stronger than they’ve ever been, in many cases, matching or exceeding the strength of metal, for their relative weight and size. And, because they are cheaper, easier and more efficient to produce than metal, the savings and value are passed on to you and your consumers.
Plastic Is Lightweight
We just mentioned how plastics have, ounce for ounce, become nearly as strong a metal. One other distinct difference between metal and plastic is weight. Metal can weigh twice as much as plastic, or more! If the part is being used on cars or equipment for example, weight of metal can slow vehicles down and can reduce aerodynamics, because the thickness and shape is limited. However, plastic is not only highly durable, but its very light weight for it’s relative size and strength. Plastic composites create aerodynamic vehicles, because it’s lighter, more moldable, thinner, and just as strong as it’s metal counterpart.
