For at least the past decade, plastics have often been considered negatively in discussions concerning sustainability and eco-friendliness. But most of this is tied to single-use plastics and how they are handled after usage. Looking further upstream to plastic manufacturing, the reality may be more eco-friendly than one would think. The modern injection molding sector has become more and more concerned with sustainability and environmental friendliness. From the plastic materials that make up the products to the production equipment that molds them, along with all of the complex logistics behind shipping and supply chain management – today’s industry demands better sustainability at every turn.
Plastic injection molding services are increasingly crucial within today’s medical and tech sectors. From state-of-the-art medical devices and specialized healthcare equipment to complex electronics components and everyday gadgets, molded plastic products can be found in virtually every facet of modern day life.
Of course, medicine, healthcare, electronics manufacturing, and the various tech industries are some of the fastest growing markets in Colorado and across the nation. More and more vendors in these niches are demanding the highest quality American injection molding companies to manufacture their products lean, reliably, and as sustainably as possible – all while simplifying their supply chains. Enter AIM Processing, one of the greater Colorado region’s leading injection molding service providers.
Nylon is a highly versatile thermoplastic material that is used in many specific injection molding applications today. An extremely durable and chemically-resistant plastic, nylon is commonly used in automotive electronic connectors, protective casings, enclosures, metal replacement parts, and high-wear mechanical components.
