Injection Molding for the Airlines

We’ve recently had the opportunity to quote to the major airlines a few injection molding projects. There are many benefits to using injection molding in the airline industry.

Here are some of the most important benefits that injection molded components provide to the airlines industry:

High Strength
Precision Components
Rapid Prototyping

Some of the most common injection molded parts for the airlines include:

    Fuse covers
    Chassis components
    Turbine blades
    Weapon components

When we finish our injected molded airline products, we will definitely have show and tell here!

7 Industries Using Injection Molding

Discover more about the seven main industries benefiting from injection molding below:

  1. Pharmaceutical

The pharmaceutical industry relies on injection molding for various purposes. You can find injection molding in pharma being used to craft many plastic products, such as eyedroppers and syringes. Since this industry needs products to meet high standards for sterilization, quality and uniformity, plastic injection molding is ideal. Any injection molding product can be manufactured to meet industry and governmental standards.

  1. Medical

Due to the many medical devices healthcare professionals need to give the best care possible, injection molding is indispensable to the medical industry. Companies use injection molding in medical devices to produce diagnostic test kits, device packaging, surgical prep products, stethoscope parts, x-ray components and medical research tools. Those in the medical industry rely on injection molding to ensure their devices are manufactured to the highest quality standards possible.

  1. Telecommunications

The telecommunications industry utilizes tons of fiber optic cables to transmit data and information throughout the world. Since these cables need specialized plastic adapters and parts to function, injection molding is crucial to this industry. Many injection molding manufacturers supply telecommunications companies with plastic attachments, adapters and other parts to ensure the ever-growing telecommunications industry can supply customers with fiber-optic connectivity.

  1. Food and Beverage

Food and beverage manufacturers benefit greatly from plastics processing industries and injection molding. Any products made to process or store foods must meet high Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards. Injection molding allows food and beverage companies to meet these standards by producing products with food-grade materials and plastics, like those that are BPA-free and non-toxic. You can often find companies in this industry using injection molding for manufacturing processing equipment, conveyor systems and beverage filter components and for crafting containers and beverage overcaps.

  1. Consumer Products

One of the main uses for injection molding is to make consumer products. For example, toy companies use injection molding to create identical plastic products featuring the durability, versatility and cleanability children’s toys need. Other companies use injection molding machines to craft household items, electronic devices and automotive parts. Injection molding is attractive to those in the consumer goods industry, as it can produce items with specialized textures, detailed designs and flowing lines.

  1. Transportation

In the transportation industry, plastic injection molding is crucial. Injection molding manufacturers provide transportation companies with products and parts, like aspirators, semi-truck handles, brake pads and body panels. Due to the rise of online shopping, the transportation industry is growing and needs more high-quality and easily reproducible products. Injection molding is critical for producing these items.

  1. Building and Construction

The building and construction industry employs injection molding to craft parts and tools they need for their everyday work. Since plastic injection molding can craft durable, stable, lightweight, reliable and cost-effective items, it’s valuable to companies needing products with all these features. Injection molding also allows companies to customize products for specific applications. You can find many construction companies utilizing injection molded fasteners, accessories and hand tools.

What Is Injection Molding?

“Injection moulding (U.S. spelling: injection molding) is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting molten material into a mould, or mold. Injection moulding can be performed with a host of materials mainly including metals (for which the process is called die-casting), glasses, elastomers, confections, and most commonly thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers. Material for the part is fed into a heated barrel, mixed (using a helical screw), and injected into a mould cavity, where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity.[1]: 240  After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, moulds are made by a mould-maker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminium, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part.

Injection moulding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest components to entire body panels of cars. Advances in 3D printing technology, using photopolymers that do not melt during the injection moulding of some lower-temperature thermoplastics, can be used for some simple injection moulds.

Injection moulding uses a special-purpose machine that has three parts: the injection unit, the mould and the clamp. Parts to be injection-moulded must be very carefully designed to facilitate the moulding process; the material used for the part, the desired shape and features of the part, the material of the mould, and the properties of the moulding machine must all be taken into account. The versatility of injection moulding is facilitated by this breadth of design considerations and possibilities.” ~
