Trends continue to evolve, and it holds good for the plastic industry. New trends bring in a lot of change that affects the process of plastic manufacturing. We are the leading injection molding manufacturers in India that offer high-quality output for industrial and commercial purposes. As new trends evolve, we are more conscious of sustainability. We involve our suppliers to commit to less or no wastage in the manufacturing process. The initiative to introduce materials that can be recycled has paid off. We are now looking at refining processes such that we can include recycling and scrap reduction. It helps the economy and environment adapt to more eco-friendly additives and resins in the manufacturing process.
Traditional resins have an impact on the environment and have been under scrutiny. We need to reconsider our approach in choosing the raw materials. Bio Resins are gaining attention from all quarters. It is a perfect alternative for traditional resins since it is made out of plant extracts and other renewable sources. Bio Resins enables green practices as it decreases poisonous emissions, disposes safely and follows the energy-efficient process. We are making use of conventional thermoplastic that is biodegradable. We use degradant concentrates like manganese stearate and cobalt separate as additives to promote disintegration and oxidation. This process will convert plastic into tiny fragments, which microorganisms will feed to convert plastic into biomass, water and carbon dioxide. It reduces the threat of harmful substances to nil.
Plastic manufacturers in India are embracing the use of reinforced plastic. The growth prospects of the global reinforced plastic market are high. The automotive industry is making use of glass, carbon, metal and graphite plastics instead of metal. Due to the design versatility, durability and low weight, reinforced plastics gain massive popularity in defence and medical applications. The automotive industry aims to improve mileage by using lightweight and slimmer tools and parts for extended battery life. The medical industry is now shifting special medical grade plastic for joint replacement, stents and mesh scaffold. There is a rise in the need for injection moulded equipment and tools to increase mobility, reduce costs and maximise outcomes.Also read: Advantages of Injection Moulding
Production efficiencies have been brought to the forefront, and plastic manufacturers in India adopt advanced technology like automation and 3D printing to improve manufacturing costs. Technology has been a catalyst in reimagining different options for manufacturing plastic parts. Advanced technology has directly impacted the plastics manufacturing industry that has led to significant benefits and output. 3D printing reduces production time for projects that require 100 to 500 cycles. There is no compromise in quality with a more efficient mold printed in cooling channels. Prototyping can be done without hindering production.
A desktop polymer printer is used for specific applications to produce prototypes whose functionality is similar to the one built on the assembly line. Automation is another trend, and it is here to stay in the manufacturing industry. The benefit being cost-saving and simplification. Industry 4.0 has given immense opportunities for plastic manufacturers to explore the opportunities for introducing robotic technology. Robotics and machine control improves speed and simplifies the process. It facilitates easier maintenance. Using automated cells can integrate multiple operations. Collaborative robots come with multiple arms, servo wrists and advanced safety features. It is faster, saves time and increases throughput.
