In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the most common industries and applications where plastic injection molding is commonly used. This process is valuable in some part due to its incredible versatility, with practical and valuable uses across a huge array of fields.
At EnviroTech Custom Injection Molders, we’re here to fill your every plastic injection molding need, from custom injection services to what we refer to as “bulk injection molding”. What are some of the other top industries and fields where this manufacturing method provides major value? Here’s a look.
Point of Purchase Displays
Abbreviated POP, point of purchase displays are used by a variety of business types to showcase their products to the public. You see them throughout major department stores and retail businesses, plus in many auto garages, big-box stores and other locations where shelving, hooks or other similar products are regularly used.
For these businesses, a blend of durability and style is necessary – these products sit out publicly and reflect the way customers view the aesthetics of the store, but also need to be able to support consistent weight-bearing needs. They’re often used for shelf dividers, product stops, pegboard hooks, and many other similar items.
Medical and Pharmaceutical Industry
Within the medical and pharmaceutical world, precision and material quality are vital to maintaining the health and safety of patients. Plastic injection molding is an excellent fit here, available in many formats that meet ISO certification and utilize FDA or other medical-grade resins as their primary materials.
Ideally, plastic products in the medical field will be made of food-grade materials that resist extreme temperatures and wear-and-tear. Our plastic injection molds can create these parts easily while also reducing their weight and increasing their design flexibility. Through our bulk injection molding services, we can create repeatable part production for large-scale medical facilities, minimizing the waste that’s created – and therefore the costs associated with production. We’ve helped produce parts ranging from filtration plates to equipment housing, bed frame components, and many others.
Doors and Windows
Whether for large-scale manufacturers or individuals, the same qualities are desired in doors and windows in almost all cases: Weatherability, thermal insulation, corrosion resistance, multiple material options, and of course a low overall cost. Injection molding brings all these qualities and more, available in a variety of resins, nylon or even vinyl and featuring extremely limited assembly time and cost areas. We can use high-quality resins to replace previously used metal components, plus plastic springs that do not risk corrosion whatsoever. Products that can be made here using injection molding range from hole plugs to joiners, latches, covers, window, and vent stops, locks and keepers, and many others.
