Plastic Molding for Appliances
In 2016, the US household appliances market had a value of $43.34 billion, and that number is expected to continue climbing through 2025 and beyond. This increase in value will be driven by numerous factors, including population growth and the implementation of “Smart” technologies that make appliances more valuable to consumers. Hansen Plastics provides some of the nation’s biggest appliance manufacturers with quality plastic components designed to improve the durability, visual appeal, and affordability of their products.  
Improvements in Durability 
 Injection molding has revolutionized the appliance market by allowing manufacturers the ability to order custom parts made with custom materials that enhance durability based on the unique needs of the project. For example, some appliances may benefit from specific resistances, whether to heat, chemicals, corrosion, rust, or more. The more durable a product, the longer it will last, and the more valuable it becomes to consumers. Injection molding affords manufacturers the ability to specify their own needs, and Hansen Plastics delivers. 
Better Visual Appeal
Both major and small appliances are often out in the open in consumers’ homes, so, it is important that the materials used in their design are both durable and visually appealing. Injection molding gives manufacturers a wide range of aesthetic options for appliances such as washers and dryers, dishwashers, ovens, refrigerators, freezers, ranges, and even small appliances like coffee makers and toaster ovens. When products look great in consumers’ homes and exceed their expectations in terms of quality, this helps brands develop favorable reputations. Hansen Plastics stands behind our products and strives to help our clients grow. 
More Affordable Manufacturing
Another way in which injection molding has forever changed the appliance manufacturing industry has to do with affordability. Manufacturers continue to look for new ways to cut costs so they can pass the savings on to consumers and remain competitive in crowded markets. Injection molding is associated with fewer design errors, which means the expense associated with production is automatically reduced. There’s less retooling involved, and there are opportunities for correction long before the manufacturing process begins. Finally, our clients appreciate our consistency, with each component produced just as high-quality as the last.
