Moulding Automobile Bumpers

by Jacob Williams Hqmould - Plastic Mould Factory

Automotive parts Moulding has made it possible to increase the efficiency of the car. This is because the parts that were previously made of steel is now being replaced with high-quality durable plastics. It performs the function that is expected of it but reduces the overall weight of the vehicle which goes a long way in increasing the fuel efficiency of the vehicle as well. Though a number of automotive parts are made using thermoplastics and moulds that are appropriate for moulding them, car Bumper is one of the large auto parts that has replaced the steel bumpers that were in use previously.

Automotive bumpers

Bumpers are automotive parts that need to perform the function of protection of the car body in the rear and front in the case of a car collision. Plastic bumpers are designed to blend perfectly with the body of the car. The automotive part consists of three components which include the outer plate, beam and cushioning material. The Plastic Mould Factory should apply the design principles that are essential for developing a car bumper mould that is attractive and effective.

Design principles

 Elements of design that must be given due consideration in Automotive Parts moulding especially while making moulds for car bumpers include

Safety- The function of the bumper as far as the vehicle is concerned is safety. Therefore, it is important that the bumper is made of a plastic that is strong and rigid and offers maximum protection in case of collision. The mould therefore has to be designed based on the plastic that would be used.

Harmony and consistency- The bumper of the car not only protect the car, but it also adds to the attractiveness of the car. This means the finishing of the bumper should be smooth and in harmony with the overall shape of the vehicle.

Installation and maintenance- The ergonomics of the vehicle has to be considered in order to ensure that the design of the bumper does not in any way interfere with the adjacent parts of the vehicle. Also, it is the duty of the Plastic Mould factory to decide on the installation point and ensure there is just the right gap for fitting the bumper without a hassle.

Energy absorption characteristics- It is important that the bumper is designed with a plastic that withstands the impact that is caused during the collision of vehicles.  The energy absorption characteristics of the material that is used in the manufacturing of the bumper are vital for ensuring this characteristic.

The plastic Mould Factory of repute like HQMould must be able to help the client seeking Automotive parts Mould by catering to the process requirements, performance requirement and cost requirement of the clients.
