As many industries become increasingly aware of the benefits of metal-to-plastic conversion, high-volume double injection molding is quickly becoming the method of choice for part manufacture.
Plastic parts offer several universal benefits over metal, including:
Can have higher tensile strength vs. many types of metal
Reduced part weight
Reduced manufacturing costs
Superior design flexibility
Faster manufacturing times
Easy adherence to various regulatory compliances
Lower packaging and shipping costs
Up to six times longer life
Increased corrosion resistance
Repeatable, predictable manufacture
Besides reducing weight and improving overall part strength and corrosion resistance, plastic-to-metal conversion also allows for the consolidation of multiple metal parts into a single plastic part. And aside from offering equal toughness and allowing for the same tight tolerances as metal, plastic parts require fewer secondary operations, thereby saving on time and costs.
