Moulding the Future

Applications of Injection and Compression Moulding in Rail and Transportation.

In an ever-dynamic world, the rail and transportation industry occupies a central position in the global pulse of activity. With an evolving need for more efficient, durable, and aesthetically pleasing components, two manufacturing techniques have risen to the forefront – injection and compression moulding. These processes are not just crafting components; they are moulding the future of the rail and transport industry.

Did you know that in just 2020, the global market for injection moulded plastics was estimated at around $343.23 billion, with a significant share going into rail and transportation? Similarly, the compression moulding market is predicted to experience a growth rate of 4.2% from 2021 to 2028, much of it propelled by its use in transport.

In this blog, we'll navigate through the intricacies of injection and compression moulding and delve into their prominent applications in the rail and transport sector.

From the creation of dashboards and door panels through injection moulding to the production of essential materials such as SMC and BMC for Third Rail Insulators via compression moulding, these technologies continue to drive advancement, not just in terms of functionality and safety but also in environmental sustainability and cost-effectiveness.
