Manufacturing Electrical Components

Currently, moulded plastic is being used increasingly in electrical and electronic markets. Rapid product cycles and constant innovation typify this market. Every camera devices, printer, computer and gadget requires plastic cases. 

  • Lighting housings 
  • Wiring 
  • Mountings 
  • Circuit board 
  • Switches
  • Light fittings 

These also require plastic parts to function. 

Plastic manufacturers can now recycle and recreate new plastic products out of the used plastics. You will be well-aware of the fact that injection moulding is used to manufacture the plastic products. Today's moulding is very much advanced and very different from what was originally invented. 

A Brief History of Plastic Moulding

The process of plastic moulding isn't a new concept that was developed during 21st century. Molding plastic materials into useful products exists since the origin of man-made plastic in the year 1851.

The process is of melting molten and heating plastic material to obtain the mould shape. This is the rudimentary concept behind the plastic moulding.

Although the moulding concept remains the same today, this technology has seen much advancement. Plastic moulding received huge importance during the period of World War II due to the demand for the plastic medical equipment. This is the period when the moulding industry got a new shift towards development. 

Future of Plastic Moulding

You may not be well aware of the fact that the use of plastics is banned in certain areas of some countries. People usually think that this might be the end of the plastic industry as the environmental pollution is the top concern today. But, with the introduction of the recyclable plastics, the plastic industry has got a rebirth. After all, as already said, we cannot imagine a world without plastics.
