ZAHORANSKY: Revolutionizing Injection Mold Production

Top 10 Injection Molding Solution Companies - 2020

The plastic injection molding sector has been continually evolving and expanding in recent years. Various industries such as automotive, consumer goods, general construction, electronics, medical, and more are utilizing this method for precision manufacturing. In the medical community, especially, injection molding is a highly regulated and much more critical than any other space.

Over time, manufacturers have developed innovative techniques for injection molding. In 2020, however, digitalization is boosting the automation of injection molding. Further, analytics-driven approach to improve injection molding operations is increasing the accuracy of the plastic flow into the mold and reducing the need for testing and refinement before moving to production. Today, manufacturers are also using durable, temperature, and corrosion-resistant materials to increase the longevity of components. For the next decade, engineered resins will be used to make lighter and stronger equipment. Technology, combined with high-performance materials, is expected to skyrocket the trajectory of the injection molding space so much so that according to allied market research, global injection molded plastics market is expected to reach a staggering $162 billion in 2020.

At this juncture, there is a wide variety of injection molding solution providers and services companies entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated offerings. To help companies navigate through the best-of-breed injection molding solution providers and services companies, Manufacturing Outlook has compiled a list of top 10 injection molding solution providers and consulting companies. The enlisted organizations are transforming the injection molding landscape. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for the aspiring CIOs.

We present to you Manufacturing Outlook’s, “Top 10 Injection Molding Solutions – 2020.”
