Plastic Injection Molded Polycarbonate Truck Mirror Housing

An automotive manufacturer recently contracted us to injection mold the truck mirror housing shown here. It is part of a six-way adjustable power mirror assembly and represents the larger end of the weight range for our injection molding capabilities.

The housing was molded from polycarbonate, with a base thickness of .230". We utilized a single cavity mold and 300 tons of clamping force to form the piece. The finished housing featured a matte black finish and dimensions of 4.0" in length, 12.5" in width, and 7.0" in height. It was also molded to tolerances of ± 0.010", which was verified, as well as all features and dimensions with comprehensive dimensional and visual inspections. This product is produced in quantities of 500 per year, with lead-times of 2 weeks.
