More Efficient Production
Plastic components benefit the automobile manufacturing process in many ways. In fact, thanks to new technologies – it is possible for auto manufacturers to build a car from the ground up in 18 to 24 hours. This would not be possible without components made by injection molding. Thanks to their lightweight design, they are far simpler to implement on the production floor. Hansen Plastics helps our clients improve their efficiency and affordability, which promotes a wide range of possibilities in the automotive manufacturing industry.
Plastic grew in popularity in the 1950s due to its incredible durability and lightweight design. These benefits are still important today, and they play an especially important role in the automobile industry. Our clients turn to us for parts made from various materials designed to be rugged and withstand everyday wear and tear.

Our clients may have very specific requests when it comes to the appearance of their plastic components. We work hard to do what it takes to meet their requirements. The polymers used in the injection molding process are commonly combined with additives such as metal, glass or other compounds. As a result, both the aesthetics and the overall performance of the finished product are enhanced. In other words, these components are beautiful enough to be right at home on even luxury vehicles. They also provide a wide range of benefits such as rust and corrosion resistance, electric shock absorption, and many more.
Injection molding has become more than just a luxury in the automotive manufacturing industry. Manufacturers must design and build durable vehicles that are both beautiful and efficient, therefore plastic injection molding is a necessity. Using plastic components reduces weight, improves the speed of manufacturing, reduces both manufacturer and consumer costs, and much more.
