Industries Where Molded Plastic Parts Are Useful
Many industries can take advantage of the cost benefits of replacing metal parts or assemblies with injection moulded plastic parts.
The design of a plastic part to replace a metal one should proceed from the general to the specific. Begin by understanding the mechanical, environmental, thermal, and other conditions it will encounter over its life, as well as how it will be processed and assembled. Initial decisions on material, detailed design, processing, and fabrication evolve from this understanding and are essential for deriving preliminary costs and practicability. This is where you can benefit from our years of plastic molding experience.
