Plastic Moulding

Our core business

Plastic Moulding

Plastic injection moulding for the automotive sector is our core business. We handle the entire product development phase, from mould design to mass production, with state-of-the-art technology and machinery.

The most common method of producing plastic objects is injection moulding as it allows even very small and complex polymeric components to be manufactured.

What we produce via plastic injection moulding

Plastic is fundamental when it comes to producing various types of objects and components, and the same applies for the automotive sector. The main method used to produce plastic parts is injection moulding.

70% of Sicav Srl's production of plastic components consists of PC-ABS and PP parts, reinforced with mineral and non-mineral fillers. Many of our products, for example, are designed to be incorporated into the roof of vehicles (inner roof of the car), such as:

  • Frames for courtesy lights
  • Structural roof elements
  • Aesthetic elements
  • Shock absorbers
  • Sunroof support frames
  • Various door panel components

20% of our injection moulding production concerns polyurethane and nylon washers for hydraulic pistons and shock absorbers, such as:

  • O-rings
  • Oil control rings
  • Shock-absorbing devices for shock absorbers

Finally, the remaining 10% of production involves the manufacture of nylon tie rods for parcel shelves and car seats, also by means of co-moulding techniques. This process allows the tie rods to be fitted with rubber inserts.

Sicav also provides its customers with the option to test and evaluate their designs before mass production.

Plastic injection moulding

Injection moulding is the most widespread and efficient technique for producing polymeric plastic components. This moulding process involves heating and melting the plastic in granular form (thermosetting/thermoplastic polymers) and then, once the melting temperature has been reached, injecting the plastic into the press-mounted mould cavity. Once the plastic material has solidified in the mould, it is opened to extract the final product.

Plastic injection moulding involves using an injection moulding machine in which the temperature and pressure of the plastic material are extremely high. This allows the plastic to slide more easily into the mould.

Plastic injection moulding of plastics boasts several significant advantages, including:

  • Accuracy and repeatability, thanks to its automated nature;
  • A wide range of compatible plastic materials;
  • Efficiency and speed: a large volume of parts can be produced in a short time, provided the correct parameters have been set;
  • Complex design: thanks to its ability to fill complex cavities and incorporate fine details, injection moulding allows for the manufacture of products with 'intricate' geometries;
  • Competitive cost: injection moulding offers good value for money, particularly for medium and high-volume production. The automated process reduces labour costs and production time, helping to keep costs down.

Sicav Srl has 18 plastic moulding presses at its disposition; each with different tonnages and equipped with electric or pneumatic manipulators for removing parts from the machinery.

  • 8 presses (horizontal and vertical) up to 100 t.
  • 8 presses from 100 to 400 t.
  • 1x 650 t press.
  • 1x 1,000 t press.

Thanks to the versatility of the plastic injection moulding technique, Sicav Srl is able to achieve a high level of productivity in a short time, whilst simultaneously reducing production costs and obtaining ultra-precise, detailed and high-quality products.
