Automotive injection moulding is a key process for the automotive sector, due to its versatility, low production costs and high levels of accuracy and safety. It can produce high volumes with a rapid turnaround time too, which is crucial for car components that must be manufactured in bulk and shipped to multiple destinations fast. We mould a wide range of top quality plastics and polymers using our state-of-the-art injection moulding techniques, including those suitable for high-performance engineering. It really is the best option for mass production, bespoke design and high volumes in the automotive industry.
Our injection moulded products have been put to work across the automotive sector in the UK and abroad for many years, thanks to our extensive experience and expert knowledge of the sector. Just as you and your clients rely on your cars and other vehicles to work properly and perform every time, so too can you rely on our products to get the job done to a high-spec finish and with impressive accuracy and durability.
Inside the automotive injection moulding process
We can design and manufacture pretty much any type of plastic component or item needed for automotive assembly, from the tiniest plastic fastening to large and complex assemblies. The process begins with a customer briefing, during which we work closely with you to achieve the perfect design. This is turned into a rapid 3D prototype, which is then used to finalise the design and work on any revisions that may be required. We are proud of our track record of delivering mouldings on time and to budget, working round the clock in three shifts, five days per week if necessary to complete your order.
Our customers choose us for our comprehensive design, development and prototype expertise, enabling them to tweak their designs to achieve total satisfaction before moving on to the mass tooling moulding and assembling production stage. We are ISO9001 compliant and have been for more than 13 years, meaning that you can be confident that our work stands up to exacting industry standards. We make it our business to keep track of key developments and updates from the automotive injection moulding world too, and to take advantage of the advancements in thermoplastic technology.
Automotive injection moulding covers a huge range of products used in car engines, exterior fittings and interiors. This is an increasingly important market for us, as the automotive sector is hitting an all-time high with record manufacturing in the UK.
