How is Plastic Injection Moulding used in the Plumbing Industry?

Plastic injection moulding plays a pivotal role in the plumbing industry due to its ability to create complex geometries over and over again, crucial in this industry due to the need to have components which are an exact fit for their application.

A number of different components used in the plumbing industry can be made via plastic injection moulding, such as pipe fittings, valves, pipe connectors, drainage components, fixtures, pump components, insulation components, and water supply components to name a few.

The cost effectiveness of plastic injection moulding is a key advantage in the plumbing industry, allowing for plumbing components to be manufactured in large volumes, reducing the overall cost per unit compared to other manufacturing methods. Additionally, a range of materials can be used, allowing your plumbing components to be manufactured bespoke.
