Industrial Injection Molding Transforms Production Environments
Mechanical engineering traditionally has been an industry focused on steel and metal alloys in order to ensure the higher mechanical strength and precision of parts needed to perform in that environment. However, industrial injection molding and the variety of high-performance and engineered thermoplastics available today have opened up new avenues to improving production.
Industrial Injection Molding Leans on Material Strengths
Ensinger Precision Components has extensive experience working with thermoplastics used for mechanical applications and as components of industrial machines. Replacing metal components with plastics is now more common due the benefits that come with utilizing high performance plastics as traditional materials fall short in several areas.
A Strong Track Record in Aerospace Injection Molding
As a division of Ensinger, Ensinger Precision Components works in close cooperation with many leading aerospace companies and systems manufacturers. The Ensinger family of companies has established a long relationship as an aerospace injection molding partner and supplier and developed optimal solutions approved for use in the industry. Ensinger’s experience includes working with the industry’s preferred Tier 1 suppliers.
Machinable plastics used in aerospace and defense must satisfy the detailed requirements of end customers and system suppliers in order to minimize risks. Different requirements for the materials, like thermal and mechanical properties, density or flammability, apply to different areas of applications. Material specifications are thus developed individually.
However, many of our thermoplastics are validated by leading aircraft manufacturers:
Finding Solutions Through Industrial Injection Molding
Often, high-performance plastics have been perceived to be too expensive to use as an alternative. However, the reality is that these special materials can often offer a solution where other traditional materials fail, opening up the doors to improved performance and machine output, thus helping to reduce cost overall.
Ensinger Precision Components provides engineering assistance to help you discover these solutions and benefits. Our complete line of manufacturing capabilities not only delivers the industrial injection molding services you need, but also offers options in CNC machining and advanced manufacturing techniques — all backed by a robust quality assurance program.
