Automotive Injection Molding - Tooling

2 shot rapid injection molded prototype


The ability to produce defect-free parts, meet delivery requirements and contain costs through manufacturing efficiencies have made us a valuable partner for our automotive customers. Among the many industries dependent on injection molding processes, the automotive sector is the one that faces the widest ranges of challenges because of the many factors that must come together in harmony for a successful production run. The need to produce parts in volume comes with exacting tolerance requirements based on the potentially huge number of vehicles which will receive injection-molded components, but these high-tolerance applications must remain cost-effective as well.

Recent developments in a wide variety of injection molding technologies have allowed Phoenix Proto to create lightweight components that are strong enough to replace many heavyweight metals, thus minimizing the weight of the finished product. In turn, this boosts fuel efficiency and assists in regulating emissions. Automotive injection molding suppliers have completely revolutionized the industry.


The consumer-forward nature of most automotive work means that if a customer is likely to see a part, it must reflect the same standard of quality found throughout the rest of the vehicle. Understanding this fact, at Phoenix Proto, we meet tolerance thresholds with a high degree of precision so that every component fits correctly, looks good, and never calls attention to itself for missing the mark. We specialize in Aluminum Tooling which can easily produce a million shots on a single tool.

Chances are good that you’ve seen or pushed a few of the millions of buttons, switches, knobs and headlamp / side mirror housings that Phoenix Proto has produced for the automotive industry. The automotive industry is one of the nation’s largest, and it relies upon a wide variety of automotive plastics parts. Phoenix Proto produces parts for some of the biggest names in auto manufacturing.
