What makes plastic injection moulding for military applications great?

The versatility and resilient nature of plastic injection moulding make it an ideal process for the defence, security and military sectors:

Thanks to their high-tolerance properties, the plastics produced are lightweight and easy to maintain, bearing up well against damage and wear and tear.

Plastic can withstand hostile conditions, such as adverse weather or extreme temperatures. It is rust-proof, too, making it less likely to fail at a crucial tactical moment.

They are robust: from the smallest applications, such as fasteners for kit bags or tiny components in surveillance equipment, to larger-scale operations.

Plastic is cheaper to produce than other materials, making it more cost-effective for today’s tighter military budgets.

Plastic doesn’t conduct electricity, making it a preferred option over metal for many mission-critical applications.

Large numbers of components or tools can be manufactured to the exact specifications and come off the production line as an identical set.

Military-grade parts

Plastic injection moulding is so versatile that the components and tools that it produces are used across the global military and defence sectors.

Some examples of essential items that are employed by the armed forces and incorporate parts that have been manufactured using thermoplastic injection moulding technology include:
