The advantages of automotive complex plastic parts:


1. The plastic can be processed at one time. The processing time is short and the accuracy is guaranteed.


2. The elastic deformation characteristics of plastic products can absorb a large amount of collision energy and have a large buffer effect on strong impacts, thus protecting the vehicle and the occupants. Plastic car dashboards and steering wheels are used in modern cars to enhance cushioning. Front and rear bumpers and body trims are made of plastic to reduce the impact of objects outside the vehicle on the body. Plastic also absorbs and attenuates vibration and noise, which improves ride comfort.


3, plastic corrosion resistance, local damage will not corrode.


4, through the addition of different fillers, plasticizers and hardeners to produce the desired properties of plastic, in order to meet the requirements of different parts of the vehicle. More convenient is that the plastic color can be changed to different colors by additives, eliminating the need for painting. Some plastic parts can also be electroplated.


On the other hand, the special appearance and size requirements of injection molded parts for automotive complex parts have increased the threshold for the development of automotive injection molded parts and the risks involved. Moldflow 3D software helps companies analyze the molding feasibility of plastic parts at the product design stage, evaluates and optimizes product design through the analysis of parts deformation and molding process, and guides downstream manufacturers' mold and injection molding optimization.
