Plastics are an ideal material for electric and autonomous vehicles. BMI can satisfy your need for lightweight parts solutions. Metal to plastic conversion is a priority for OEMs as they search for alternative solutions.
BMI is a pioneer in plastic injection molding for the automotive industry. Our engineers have the material knowledge, the engineering skills, and the staff to handle any electric vehicle part project.
Highly Engineered Resins – New materials technology is constantly evolving, and BMI is at the forefront of this evolution. Plastics offer:
Weight Reduction – Weight reduction is one of the reasons OEMs choose plastic over metal.
Cost Reduction – Injection molded plastic components are less expensive to produce.
Noise Reduction – OEMs are challenged to reduce noise at the component and interior levels throughout the vehicle.
Strength and Safety – Technological evolutions have improved the tensile strength in plastics as compared to metals, such as aluminum and steel.
Plastics can provide versatility in engineering and design. Automotive OEMs are finding new ways to incorporate injection molded parts into electric vehicles, ranging from internal components to exterior panels, seat structures, and battery housings.
As electric vehicles become more popular, automotive OEMs have an increased need to convert metal parts to plastic and use more injection molded plastic parts and components. The success of your project and parts are achieved by partnering with an experienced custom injection molding partner like BMI. We have a deep knowledge of automotive product design, production, and assembly, along with IATF 16949 certification.
