Plastic injection molding is one of the most widely used techniques for manufacturing, and for good reason. It is a highly versatile process, and customers know that they can expect high-quality results. The automotive industry has benefited from plastic injection molding for decades. Parts and components of all kinds are made from automotive injection molding. In an industry that relies on consistently made safe parts, plastic injection molding is widely seen as the best option.
What kinds of components can be made from automotive injection molding?
Plastics are hugely popular in the automotive industry because they are lightweight, easily made and highly durable. With the introduction of plastics into the automotive industry decades ago, mass production was made simpler and much more cost efficient.
The list of components made from automotive injection molding goes on and on. Essentially, if it’s plastic, it can be made by plastic injection molding. Here are a few examples of plastic parts and components made this way:
– General instrumentation, including the molding that holds it all in place
– Housings for electronic module controls
– Radio controls
– Plastic interior surfaces
– Faceplates and lenses
– Splash guards and other exterior automotive features
