The rise of plastic components in modern automobiles
Plastic offers a lightweight alternative to metal in automotive applications. One of the benefits of plastic is that it reduces the vehicle’s overall weight. This improves energy efficiency. As a result, plastic components are increasingly being installed in modern cars. Such parts can be found under the hood, in the car’s interior and on its exterior.
No matter where they’re located, plastic components need to be high quality and robust. One of the most reliable methods for producing high-quality plastic components is injection molding.
The many benefits of precision injection molding
Injection molding offers a number of benefits. One of the biggest advantages is the ability to produce a part consistently at a very high quality. Quality is essential to a vehicle’s safety and reliability. Plastic injection molding using ensures consistent and repeatable tolerances and a high level of precision.
With injection molding it is also possible to rapidly develop and test prototypes. forteq has its own in-house tooling center and can develop its own molds, thus reducing costs and time to production.
Plastic components manufactured using injection molding offer greater options in terms of materials and colors. A wide range of polymers can be used, giving the designer more options and increasing the options for using plastics rather than metal.
Ensuring consistent high quality
Injection molding offers a reliable and economical option for producing high-quality automotive components. forteq has been a leader in precision engineering and plastic molding for more than six decades.
