Injection Molding for Irrigation Parts & Agricultural Components
In the not-so-distant past, irrigation components and agricultural parts were made primarily of brass or other metals. This is no longer the case. Injection molded plastic products have become the standard within agricultural industries.
The types of plastic components now required in irrigation and agriculture are nearly endless. From pipe fittings to sharp-edged locking mechanisms, everything must be able to withstand intense water pressure. HiTech Plastics and Molds is an experienced manufacturer of molds and thermoset plastic parts designed to meet these challenges.
Why Use Injection Molding for Irrigation Parts & Agriculture Components?
Because of advances in science and technology, plastic has become the primary material used in irrigation components and agricultural parts. Injection molded plastic components and parts are lightweight, low-maintenance, and cost-effective alternatives to traditional metal pieces.
Plastic Injection Molded Irrigation Parts
Many plastic irrigation parts and products are injection molded. The resins (in pellet form) are heated to become liquid-like at the appropriate temperature. The heated resin is then injected into a single or multi-cavity mold. Once the plastic cools and solidifies into the desired shape, it is ejected from the mold to create the desired plastic irrigation part and product.
We work with a wide range of plastics and materials, and we are ready to manufacture most custom injection molded plastic irrigation parts and components. Different resins and plastic blends offer different irrigation part characteristics, such as:
- Flexibility or hardness
- Dimensional Stability
- UV resistance
- Resistance to moisture, chemical, or mechanical corrosion
- And more.
These characteristics determine an irrigation product’s performance, from sprinklers to tubing and beyond.
Injection Molding for Agricultural Components
From filling food supply lines to generating jobs, agriculture is an industry that keeps all the other aspects of commerce in motion. To keep food or material scarcity from becoming a critical problem, you must be able to depend on the injection molded plastic components that keep your agriculture application running smoothly.
HiTech Plastics and Molds is here to help you improve production. As a leading injection mold and plastics manufacturer, we understand that agricultural parts come in many different sizes, shapes, and resins. Your mold will be built to fit your exact specifications and meet even the strictest agricultural requirement.
Is Injection Molding or Plastic Machining Better for My Agricultural & Irrigation Part?
Injection molding is generally better suited for agricultural components or irrigation part applications. Plastic machining is over twice as expensive per part when compared to injection molding. Additionally, plastic machining cannot process the same range of plastic materials. Injection molding creates high-quality plastic products quicker and with greater control throughout the manufacturing process.
