As we enter the new decade, the plastic automotive component manufacturing industry is expected to continue to grow. Manufacturers are adopting new techniques and researchers are developing sophisticated compounds. These solutions will continue to replace traditional metal and steel components as they become more important to OEM vehicle manufacturers. This article is updating our 2019 Plastic Manufacturing Trends in Automotive Production blog.
Estimates suggest that the automotive plastics market will reach $68.58 billion by 2025. The industry will benefit from drives to improve fuel-efficiency, transitioning away..
The performance of plastic parts often depends on the staking method applied during the manufacturing process. Ultrasonic plastic welding is a popular option among manufacturers, but product designers and process engineers need to keep in mind there may be some issues with the technology.
With ultrasonic welding, the production cycles are fast, it doesn’t require any additional consumables, and it works well in a variety of different applications. When deciding to use ultrasonic technology for the welds and joints, one should consider possible issues that can arise during the design..
As the car manufacturing industry evolves, plastics continue to replace metallic core components of every automobile, allowing cars to be sleeker, lighter, and more efficient.
Plastic manufacturing for the automotive industry, however, has only scratched the surface. New incremental improvements in molding, pressing, and plastics welding crop up each year. Also, changing automobile designs have pushed plastics experts to find new ways to mold, texturize, and bind these materials.
