Automotive Manufacturing Materials
Nylon 6 and 66 are the most widely used engineered thermoplastics in the automotive industry. They can be 3D printed to make rapid prototyping, and maybe mineral or glass-filled when higher strength is required. It is coveted for its high strength, low cost, high dimensional stability, and excellent resistance. It is applied in making crankcases, timing belts, cylinder head covers, cams, bushes, gears, bearings, oil containers, wire harness connectors, and fuse boxes.
Explore an array of thermoplastic resins to make functional, attractive end-use automotive components for any function. We stock the most popular thermoplastic for automotive production, including Acetal, PEEK, Polypropylene, PVC, ABS, Polystyrene, Polycarbonate, and more.
Thermoplastics can deliver high strength, design flexibility, no-corrosion, and UV resistance for applications in vehicle design.
LSR is used for custom O-rings, gaskets, seals, self-lubricating components, harnesses, and damper components. Because of their mechanical properties, elastomeric materials are suitable for flexibility, self-lubricating, and high-performance applications within vehicles.
Aluminum is widely sought in the automotive industry for its excellent strength and lightweight. Aluminum parts are corrosion-free. They are also easily CNC machined, 3D printed, and formed into intricate geometries.
Aluminum is affordable and readily available for use in making a wide array of parts. It can also be finished in a variety of ways to boost appearance and functionality.
Our Automotive Manufacturing Services
CNC milling and turning operations for making automotive components with intricate geometries, cylindrical shapes, and high precision. CNC machining services are capable of producing parts with tight tolerances. It is also excellent for finishing and adding details to your part.
• Sheet Metal Fabrication Services
Our sheet metal fabrication can help you fabricate parts with high strength-to-weight ratios from light layers of metal alloys. Automotive components can be formed through bending, pressing, punching, and more.
Plastic Injection molding is used to make plastic parts in significantly high volumes. At Premium Parts, we can create high-quality plastic parts with several resins. This allows you to choose the best materials based on the mechanical and cosmetic needs of your part. Our injection-molded parts can also be finished in multiple ways.
3D printing can be used for rapid prototyping and rapid tooling. Through SLA, SLS, FDM, and more, Premium Parts can make functional prototypes and end-use parts with the most complex shapes and geometries from your CAD files.
At Premium part, our vacuum casting has been widely used for making low-volume copies of a piece with excellent cosmetic finishes. With the use of a 3D printed master pattern, our vacuum casting operation will use elastomers to make your final part without the need for any capital tooling cost.
Pressure die casting is suitable for making large volumes of metal parts with a high level of detail and dimensional stability. Our pressure die casting service is cost-effective and affordable, lowering the unit cost per part. Castings can also be finished in a range of options.
